A New Shelby Team Member



Let me introduce a new member of our Shelby family, Nick Weaver. Nick is our new Sales Representative that will be covering our Northeast Territory. Nick is replacing John Crowell who was recently promoted to a sales leadership position within our company.  Nick comes to us from the investment industry with a background in sales and real estate investments. Here is Nick’s biography to learn more about him. If you are in the Northeast territory, Nick will be handling your needs for any products and services your church requires. You can see those states by visiting our Sales Team webpage here



Year-End Resources

Our support and training teams have consolidated a number of resources (including blogs, videos and documentation) that we think will be helpful as you prepare for Year-End.  If you are processing W2s, 1099s, contribution statements, creating another financial year, entering budgets.... please take a moment and review. 



The Resurgence of the QR Code



Using a QR Code is by no means new technology. Historically, we’ve used them on our business cards, for downloading apps, online greeting cards, advertising, getting someone to our website… the list goes on. The need to go ‘contactless’, however, has brought about a resurgence in their use. If you’ve visited a restaurant lately, you’ll receive a QR code in lieu of the customary menu. Our morning news and commercials use them to link to various ‘Christmas’ lists and product information. We are even starting to see churches use them while streaming church services to link to bulletins, online giving sites, newsletters and event information. 


Here’s some information we thought might help as you consider using this easy and effective means to get information to your congregation.
