Ministry Tool Box: Online Collaboration
In this edition of the Ministry Tool Box we welcome back Brandon Moore, from Speak. Today, he is sharing about a great online tool that enables churches, and church planting teams to easily collaborate on projects.
How does your team collaborate to get projects completed? If you’re like most teams, your projects have a list of tasks and objectives that need to be completed. Having these projects organized, and organizing tasks on a collaborative workspace will help to make it easier to accomplish your project in an efficient manner.

Need a relationship management database? You got it.
Need a way to manage events and resources? You got it.
Need to keep track of your fundraising projects? You got it.
