8) We’ve Been Kicking the Tires of Disciple.Tools; We Love it

For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been trying out the new collaboration software called Disciple.Tools. We can sum up our response in one word: Awesome. Sure there were CRM packages that churches and mission agencies could buy, rent, or try to adapt. But prior to now, they were either too expensive, too complicated, too kludgy, or just plain didn’t quite fit. Finally, here’s a disciple-makers who just simply want to see progress made toward his Great Commission. Designed specifically for field teams, mission orgs, churches, and Christian mass media groups, this tool was developed by practitioners in the field. They say “necessity is the mother of invention.” Well the particular field team who led the way in developing this is first and foremost exactly that: a field team. They led the way in developing this software because they couldn’t find it on the shelf and they needed it. Yes, truth in advertising, they happen to be from the org of which we’re members. But we’d recommend this software if it had been developed by anyone, anywhere else in the world. It’s unique, secure, scalable, quick as a bunny, mobile, with adequate filtering and it’s even multilingual. What’s more, it’s open source, plays well with others (like Facebook and MailChimp), and it can even be customized and extended. With it, you can find seekers, track progress of your emerging disciple-making movement, collaborate, chart, and hand off contacts. There’s a great dashboard. It’s listed on Github. And most amazing of all (drum roll), it’s a gift to the nations. Because this team needed it, they paid to develop it — in more ways than one. It’s completely free of charge to you. And it improves virtually every month. Seriously. You’ll love it. Try it.

    Serving in Europe, my first question is – wouldn’t this be a privacy concern and violate the new privacy laws in the EU? I’ve only glanced over the info, but it seems that I would input someone’s name and contact info, which would then be stored and shared with others. Before doing so under the General Data Protection Regulation, explicit permission must be received from the person after they have been fully informed of exactly what their info is being used for, who it is shared with, how it can be removed from storage, etc.

    I’m not a speed reader. Slow it down.

    All GDPR regulations and procedures are followed when doing the marketing. No information is shared without permission and all information received is actually anonymized unless a private message initiated by the seeker is done.

    Even then that information is stored in a secure way that meets all privacy requirements. A seeker is specifically asked if they would like to talk to someone face-to-face about Christ so that no other information is given without that person‘s permission.
