Pastoral Care

Realm® creates new opportunities for ministry and innovates how your church runs and changes lives.

Know your members.

Realm Shepherd, the mobile app built specifically for pastors, allows access to congregant information such as personal info, family members, discipleship tracks, pastoral notes, and more.

Develop great leaders.

Provide group leaders with the right tools to manage their group roster, communicate, schedule events, and share photos or files.

Bring people together.

Give people the opportunity to connect throughout the week, share prayers with their groups, see what’s happening, update family info, and RSVP to group or special events.

“It really feels helpful and gives you information immediately, and I like immediate information.”

- Derrick, Executive Pastor

What Pastoral Teams Love

Realm is an essential part of a pastor's ministry.

Feel the pulse of your church.

Realm’s dashboards help you get a sense of your church’s health – from member involvement to attendance to overall giving trends – so you’ll always know how to better shepherd your congregation.

Nurture spiritual growth.

Use tools like Realm’s Pathways to step someone through a discipleship program, involve staff for follow-ups, and see where people are in the process.

Record meaningful connections.

Take the frustration out of pastoral notes. The Realm Shepherd app allows pastors or congregant care teams to log pastoral notes, prayers, and other private interactions directly to the app whenever they are needed.
