The cloud-based tool for tracking and maintaining your church's interest list. It's a complete CRM for managing your interests!
What is an interest list?
An "interest list" is simply a list of people who have connected with your church in one way or another. They may have requested a book from a national media ministry, attended a cooking school or stop smoking seminar, attended an evangelistic series, or even visited your worship service. Any time someone connects with your church, you should ask for contact information and add them to your interest list.
How is an interest list used?
Any time you have an outreach event in your community, give a personal invitation to everyone on your interest list. Make sure this list is included in any direct mail marketing you might do.
One of the most successful evangelists of our generation, Mark Finley, recommends sending an offer to your interest list every three months. He has found response rates as high as 50% when the right offer is sent to an interest list.
Today, many churches maintain their interest lists using a spreadsheet or text document. While this is a fine method for holding this information, it can make it difficult when multiple people need access to an ever-changing document. Furthermore, this method makes it difficult to document each contact with your interests.
InterestTracker™ solves this by offering an online tool for recording information about your interests. More than just a database, InterestTracker™ allows you to segment your list, add notes, and track activity for each interest through every interaction with your community. It's a complete CRM for managing your interests!
This interest tracker resource is FREE to Seventh-day Adventist churches in North America.

Is This the Same as VOP's New Attendance Software?
No. The Voice of Prophecy is developing major enhancements to their online Student Record System (SRS) used by Discover Bible Schools, which will include event attendance tracking. If your church is a VOP Discovery Center, we encourage you to use their system to get all the benefits from integration with the program.
We highly recommend that churches become Discovery Centers. Learn more about it on the Discovery Center website.
