The Ministry Weaver database is not a static data model designed to solve a single problem. The technology is completely configurable by changing the meta-data and flipping software switches. We never customize with custom code.
There are pros and cons to any technology. The pro side of a 100% data-driven configurable technology is that it can be extremely flexible with a change cycle of days instead of months. The con of completely configurable software is that out-of-the-box nothing is defined.
To solve the problem of the empty configuration, we have developed a number of templates for different types of missions and ministries as a starting place for configuring the system. These templates include best practices types, status, regions, forms, and data policies. Walking through the template becomes a natural method of highlighting decision points. If an organization includes concepts from a different template, or that are unique to the organization, it’s easy to pull from another template, or modify the configuration.
Sample templates to help ministries during the implementation process.
Regardless of the preconfigured solution list, we can configure Ministry Weaver to match your ministry.
