Recap: Attributes of Organizations
  • May or may not have Members
  • May or may not have Meetings
  • Provides the means to track Visitors and their involvement
    • You add Visitors to a Meeting of an Organization
  • Provides both current and historical information
    • Current Enrollment - Members
    • Attendance - Members and Visitors
    • Previous Members

Dates and times…scheduled or ad hoc

Visitors…first-time or repeat


Volunteers…faithfulness in keeping commitments

Attendance…reporting, trends


Programs contain Divisions

One way you might think about Programs:

  • They identify types of ministries and their activities
    • Bible Study
    • Music
    • Recreation
    • Missions
  • They do not target categories of people based on age or stage of life

Divisions contain Organizations

One way you might think about Divisions:

  • Based on age or stage of life
  • Convenience…group Organizations together to:
    • Make it easy to run certain queries for communication
    • Make it easier for on-line registrations
    • Run certain reports
    • Add general flexibility

Recap Programs, Divisions & Organizations

In this analogy…

A chest of drawers can represent a Program

It can have several/many drawers, which represent Divisions

Inside each drawer are many items, which represent Organizations
