What is Blackbaud LMS?

Blackbaud is a church management and congregational engagement platform designed to provide churches with a complete and robust software to manage their followers as well as their facilities, resources, and events. Formerly known as Seraphim, this church management solution is equipped with the tools and capabilities to help you address all aspects of your ministry and outreach.

Initially started out as a basic church management tool, Blackbaud is now a comprehensive software that continues to evolve to meet the growing and changing demands of churches. World-class yet very user-friendly, the modern Blackbaud church management suite gives you total visibility of your congregation, helping you administer your church, and be in tune with your followers.

Overview of Blackbaud LMS benefits

Blackbaud provides churches and congregations with more than just a management tool. This software boasts full integration of your front and back office to help you stay on top of your church membership, finances, resources, and events. It centralizes all aspects of church management, making administrative functions, outreach, communication, planning, finance, and accounting faster and easier as everything is all placed under one roof.

Blackbaud lets you record congregation actions and memberships effortlessly. It is quite simple to categorize church members by family, age, location, school, and interests among others. Custom fields let you create forms to help you capture specific information from your members and visitors, which leads to easy profiling.

The security of each and every member is paramount, especially when it comes to children. With Blackbaud, every church member and visitor is documented and tracked with check-in functionalities. You can require members to provide proper identification as well as photos of their children and relatives to aid visual match-ups. The software also gathers critical information such as medical history, allergy, and medication so you can provide immediate assistance or contact their healthcare providers and family in case of a medical emergency.
