Connect with Elvanto at WBC
Elvanto is our new church management software that can be used by church administrators, pastors, volunteers and members. It is a cloud-based software which means, it can be accessed anywhere, at any time on any internet-enabled device by our church members who have been given a secure account.
If you are a volunteer at Wollongong Baptist Church, you should have or soon will have received an email from our admin team about setting up your Elvanto account. Signing up is a straightforward process, however, if you need help with your account, please contact our office. Once you have set up your account, you can access Elvanto either on the app (Apple
) or via our website https://wollongongbaptist.org/
(scroll down to bottom and click on Elvanto button).
So you are aware as to how we have gone about bringing in Elvanto, last year before the Elvanto trial begun in September the Elders and Deacons worked hard to create our new data and privacy policies. And then since September the pastors and administrators have been setting up Elvanto for the different services.
Going forward Elvanto will be used by church volunteers to:
- check their roster
- swap with other people directly through the app
- submit unavailable dates for future roster seasons
- view the volunteers on a specific Sunday
- view the service plan for the Sunday coming
There will be a transitional period as we continue to set up the software. But eventually, all SMS and email reminders will come through Elvanto and the rosters section of the website will be removed.
The staff team of Wollongong Baptist Church are excited about this software and it’s potential to improve our administration and pastoral oversight. There are many features that we don’t have time to mention! Please be praying for the church as we bring in this new technology, and also please chat to Hannah in the office if you have any questions.
