June 2020 Updates
Summer officially started this Saturday, and we’re seeing signs of life in full swing with churches reopening in various ways around the country.
We are grateful for the overwhelmingly positive feedback and interest in TouchPoint’s webinars. New webinars continue to be added to help you and your church grow deeper relationships and make disciples. Giving widgets, two-way SMS, and deep-linking offer effective methods for nurturing connections with congregants during ordinary and extraordinary times, be it a weekly Sunday sermon or a midweek mobile touch point.
Whet your appetite and watch our recent webinar on mobile giving from earlier this month. You will find ideas for how to best optimize mobile giving, grow recurring giving, and minimize processing fees to be good stewards of tithes and offerings.
The team is hard at work preparing for TouchPoint Summit in September. Like you, we’ve been having discussions around when it is safe to host in-person events again. We are committed to presenting Summit in some form this year, but want to hear from you on what format would make you feel most comfortable. To that end, we’ll be sending out a survey in the next week, so please plan to give us your feedback once the link is available.
Until next time, let’s celebrate the dads in our lives and Our Father this Father’s Day!

Tips & Tricks
Did you know replacing the people ID in a people record URL with the number 0 will automatically direct an individual directly to their own record?
For example, if my people record URL is [mychurch].tpsdb. com/Person2/3120821, I can change it to [mychurch].tpsdb. com/Person2/0 that everyone can use to access their own records. This opens a lot of cool possibilities!
Take attendance with new Custom Reply Words! Ask your congregation to text a code, like ‘HERE’ to your Twilio number to record their attendance within your database.
Keep the conversation going from the Received tab! If someone texts your church, their message will be recorded on the SMS Received tab even if they’re not in your database!
You can send a reply text by clicking on the blue arrow found in the sender column.

Introducing the TouchPoint Referral Program.
We understand the value of word-of-mouth advertising. We appreciate so much the positive feedback you give to churches looking to make their Church Management System the best it can be. Now, your church can directly benefit by making those connections for TouchPoint!
When you refer your peers to TouchPoint, you’re not only helping us serve more churches with what we believe is the most comprehensive enterprise solution on the market, you are also helping us accelerate the development of new enhancements. As you’ve seen, we all benefit from one church’s initiative to build upon our platform which is in turn shared by all. But there’s more…
We want your church to benefit from the connections you make for TouchPoint. We are offering a credit on your account OR a direct donation to your organization totaling 25% of first year subscription revenue by these new clients.
This program is scheduled to conclude on December 31, 2020. There is no maximum number of referrals you can submit.
