Visualizing the Fulfillment of the Great Commission

iShare supports, unites, and mobilizes ministries dedicated to the Great Commission.

Coalition of the Willing is a coordinated effort of willing ministries who share strategic data on Christian and church presence with the purpose of planting a church in every people and every place. iShare seamlessly integrates this data and produces simple, engaging visualizations of the current church planting realities.

Measure Ministry Milestones iShare exists to show church planting progress and gaps in an area and plan better for the future. Groups, events and planned activity can all be recorded in the system to give a fuller picture of what God is doing in each specific area.

Collaboration

Uniting together for effectiveness through working together by sharing strategic data to see a local body of Christ in every place and every people.

iShare equips organizations to reach their strategic goals by identifying kingdom activity taking place in specific locations.

The interactive map reveals information to explore new opportunities. iShare looks into the void of where NO churches exist and where people have NO hope of hearing the gospel to guide us as we answer the question, “How can we make sure there is a church within easy access of everyone?”

Streamlined data collection for local workers. iShare is only as useful as the quality of data it contains. We know how difficult it is to find the time and resources to collect information and record it into a system such as iShare. iShare was designed with this in mind, to make data entry simple, yet complete. Including consideration for data collection in locations without immediate internet connection.

Mapping

Visualize your activities on a map and discover the gap in the remaining Church Planting needs by seeing both your own data and other organizations who are sharing data.

Geographic location of groups, churches and events are easily observed to allow for collaborating with others in the body of Christ. Strategic Visualization creates the opportunity for analysis of large amounts of data that combines both the quantitative goals of planting more churches, as well as the qualitative goal of a church nearby for everyone. Through simple visualizations like color shading the status of Kingdom work is easy to see.

Security

security

We understand security is a critical part of our responsibility as an aggregator of global church planting data. All transmission and storage of information is encrypted.

Each organization has different needs for security which is why each organization’s information is kept separate from others so that you are not impacted by the other users of the system. You have full control over which information is shared with the rest of the iShare community.

iShare does not require personally-identifiable information. Pseudonyms are completely acceptable. iShare captures limited information about a church or event, only what is needed for strategic decision making purposes.

Because location information is one of the most sensitive pieces of information, the system is flexible on the level of detail you supply for each church or event. iShare offers multiple levels of increasingly-detailed location information to be used, depending on the security needs of a country or even individual churches.

iShare’s access to data is fully compartmentalized to empower organizations to limit what each user can edit or view. You have full control to set up your own users  and define their access rights.

 

Measuring

iShare complements your existing ministry processes for collecting reports and information from those who are on the ground, starting new groups and churches. Most organizations find virtually no changes need to be made to how your staff and volunteers work. Those who use iShare say the most significant impact on their reporting process has been to accurately track the location of the groups and events. We created iShare to work with an organization’s existing workflow for gathering and disseminating information. iShare allows organizations to input data they have gathered and display reports and maps based upon their information and specified needs. iShare also provides a shared view of the data that aggregates data from all the organizations utilizing the system leading to effective planning and decision making.

iShare is integrated into other data collection tools so that you can connect existing data directly to iShare. You can also connect  your own system to iShare through our API or through data uploads.

Collaboration

Working together is critical to the fulfilment of the Great Commission.

Through iShare, organizations work together to find strategic opportunities to work in places where there is no Christian presence and in places where there is no active church or church planting activity.

Through this technology you can Visualize the combined effort from all participating organizations in order to reduce duplication of effort and find ways to work together to ensure there is a church in every people and in every place.
