Our easy-to-use flagship software integrates your church's website, social media, podcasts, calendars and newsletters to be current, shareable, mobile, and accessible to both existing and new audiences.
You have work to do. So do we. We stay on top of a constantly changing technical landscape, creating software that frees you to perform your ministry.
Membership Vision helps churches of all sizes tell their stories and maintain an effective and sustainable online presence. For mission stations, large and established congregations, small and intimate parishes, cathedral communities, dioceses and others, Membership Vision products and services enable churches to be invitational, engaging and current -- all while removing technological hurdles.
Updating your website should be as easy as posting to social media -- and now it is. Rather than putting so much of your effort into a newsletter read by those already in your church while your website remains stagnant, you can now build your newsletter by posting to your site. Instead of needing to update your website after an event, it is automatically updated multiple times per day.
Our flagship product is much more than a CMS (Content Management System). MV takes anything you want to do, from creating forms to sending newsletters to audio and video podcasting, and makes it fun, simple and sustainable.
We are inspired by the innovative work we see in the church to create technological tools that enable churches to be themselves, to be real, online. This will change the way you do "online." Contact us below to get started or to learn more!
Thanks for your interest! Your submission has been received and we will be reviewing it shortly.
Merrill believes digital communication is a priority for churches, that an authentic and natural online presence can build and strengthen relationships. He has been a communications consultant to multiple Episcopal congregations since the year 2000, and what he has learned and witnessed over the years has informed his aims with Membership Vision: to create something simple and sustainable for churches that encourages connection, and for churches to be able to tell their story in such a way that others feel invited to take part in the telling -- in short, freeing clergy and staff to perform their mission. He runs operations in Ventura and enjoys both web and actual surfing.
