Introducing Ministry Area Profile Maker: Custom Reports in Minutes!
Ministry Area Profile Maker
Percept's new Ministry Area Profile Maker shares the same simple online interface as FirstView Maker, a resource that Link2Lead members have been widely using since it was introduced in 2007 to create complimentary FirstView reports (see article on FirstView Maker below) while they wait. Everything you need to create your ministry area boundary and complete your order is at your fingertips and requires only a few minutes of your time. The new order system includes secure online payment as well, a feature we know many of you will appreciate. We're excited to bring the same ease, speed of delivery, and 24/7 access to making Ministry Area Profiles that has proven to be so popular with custom FirstView reports.
As a Link2Lead member you always receive the best discount available to church leaders for the Ministry Area Profile. The Link2Lead price is only $149 ($70 less than non-members pay)! For further information about this comprehensive demographic resource, or to create one for your church right now, click here.
Bonus ActiveMap Link Included with your FirstView Maker and Ministry Area Profile Maker Orders
If you have ordered a digital report using our new online order system recently you know that the links to download your custom FirstView or Ministry Area Profile are delivered via an email message. Now you'll notice an additional link to your brand new ActiveMap. In short, when you click on the ActiveMap link, you'll be taken to a modified Google map with your study area boundary shown as well as a set of colored markers. Due to our contractual relationships with over 500 denominational organizations over the years, we have amassed the largest and most accurate church location database in existence.
We call it ChurchLink and it contains over 100,000 church locations and is updated nearly every day. When you click on your ActiveMap, you'll see the closest 200 churches to your study area (the maximum allowed by Google at this time). Use your mouse pointer to hover over each church and you will see a label pop up showing the church's name and denomination. Also note that the church markers are colored by denomination. If you don't see a particular denomination on your ActiveMap, it usually means that group has not contributed church location information yet. You can zoom in and out, move the map around, switch between map view and satellite view...all with your ministry area boundary displayed. And you don't even have to sign in to the website to do it. Just click the link. When your browser opens save the page in your Favorites to open it again any time you want.
Introducing MemberView! One-click Household Mapping and Analysis
Give MemberView A Try Now...  
A Powerful New Resource for Administration and Planning (and it's free)! Church leaders who participated in an early demonstration of MemberView were not only excited about this new resource, they were full of practical ideas for how they would use it every day to enhance their church ministry. MemberView could be used to optimize the administration of events, small groups, shut-in transportation and car-pooling, outreach, neighborhood ministry, volunteer efforts, disaster preparation and recovery, and any other planning activity that benefits from seeing where people are located. In just a few minutes they listed many uses we hadn't even thought of, and we expect there may be many others.
So Easy to Get Started! MemberView features easy online entry of member addresses and a simple to use member list import that enables bulk uploading and live "geocoding" of addresses. This means you'll be able to see a Google map displaying member markers in proximity to your church just moments from uploading the file. Then you'll  be a mouse-click from seeing a one-page graphic analysis report of member distance or drive-time from the church. And this is included in your Link2Lead membership! You won't find another member/congregant plotting tool that's so easy to use, quick to results, and absolutely free to use. To see samples and learn more, or to begin using MemberView now, click here, or click the "My Congregation" tab above and then click the MemberView button on the left menu. And, as always, let us know what you think (click the "Leave Feedback" link on the header above).
