What is ShelbyNext Membership?
ShelbyNext Membership is part of Northminster’s church management software. It allows members to access the current member directory, update their own contact information, view their contribution history and print contribution statements right from their own computer or with a free app on their smartphones. The software is developed and hosted by Shelby Systems, the same company that developed the original Shelby software that the church has been using for decades.

Why are we doing this?
Churches today have different technology needs than they did 20, 10, or even 5 years ago. In addition, members have different expectations than they had in the past. Most of our members now access all kinds of information from home computers and phones. For years members have been asking for a way to view the directory online and to view their own giving record. With ShelbyNext we now have a software system that provides members secure access while giving staff and church leaders improved tools to manage membership, contributions and finances.

Do I have to use ShelbyNext Membership?
No, but if you have a computer or smartphone we encourage you to give it a try. Certain elders, deacons and church volunteers may need to use the management and group features to fulfill their responsibilities.  In fact, the staff and a number of church leaders are already using ShelbyNext on a daily basis.

What’s wrong with the paper directory?
We will still have Guidebook produce a printed church directory each year. Of course, the printed directory is almost always out of date by the time you receive it. Our members change contact information frequently, and ShelbyNext Membership will give you the most up-to-date information.

Can I have someone else update my information rather than using ShelbyNext?  
Of course - the office staff is always happy to do this for you!
