Active Network, a technology and media company has acquired online church management software provider Fellowship Technologies, known by many as (Fellowship One or F1.) As a result of the acquisition, Active Network will expand its technology offerings within the faith industry and provide a comprehensive suite of solutions for these community organizations.
Fellowship One will now be added to Active’s suite of products, which serves over 75,000 community, non-profit and business clients worldwide. Some of their featured customers include: Starbucks, Ironman, Oracle and Bose.
According to research there are more than 300,000 churches in North America alone. As the largest provider of software solutions to the faith-based market, Fellowship Technologies counts for more than 1,700 churches as clients, including 36 percent of North America’s largest churches.
At LifeChurch.tv we are one of the many large churches that uses Fellowship One’s technology. LifeChurch.tv Innovation Pastor and Innovation leader Bobby Gruenwald talks about Fellowship One and their partnership with Active network, “Fellowship Technologies has been a valued partner in ministry with LifeChurch.tv for over 3 years. Their passion for leveraging technology for churches to connect with people and communities matches well with the mission of our church. We are excited about what the combination of Fellowship Technologies and Active Network holds for our church and others.”
In my humble opinion, it sounds like the best may have just gotten better. Jeff Hook, president and CEO of Fellowship Technologies said, “We still have the same God-sized vision and we still have the same management team and staff. With this acquisition, however, we believe churches across the globe will be better served, and we can improve the scale and quality of the solutions available… Joining with Active Network will accelerate our efforts to raise the bar… again.”
The Largest Church Management System is Now Bigger and Better.
