What Our Users Say

From time to time we receive comments from our users and post a sampling of them here. “My relationship with Mic Thurber goes back over 25 years through more versions of the CMD than I can possibly remember. His passion for ministry through this wonderful software tool has shown itself in lightning fast support, quick innovation in the face of changing needs, and the personal touch an end-user can otherwise only dream about. Where else can you get things resolved by e-mail to the creator of the software - often overnight! Someone has already coined the phrase ‘technical ministry’, but Mic has set the standard for what it means.” Bob Luton, Pastor, Fair Haven United Methodist Church, Houston, TX “I have used CMD for a number of years and have found it to be an excellent program. It is easy to learn and flexible in being adaptable to different Christian traditions. The regular updates which have input from users has enhanced the program. Quick List is a very special feature that is in continual use in our office. Mic has only been a phone call or email away and responses are timely.” The Very Rev. R. J. Osborne, Dean of Rupert’s Land, Rector of St. John’s Anglican Cathedral, Winnipeg MB. Canada “I have used CMD in two churches, and it has been a very helpful tool. The tech support is prompt and effective. The program helps us with mailings, visitation tracking, year-end reports, and statements of financial giving. I cannot imagine operating without it.” John Blewitt, Pastor, Slate Ridge Presbyterian Church, Cardiff, Maryland “I have been a user of CMD for many years, beginning with the DOS version. It is reasonably priced and fits our needs quite well. The tech support has been available and helpful.” Pastor Terry L. Mabery, Church of Christ, Collinsville, IL “As a small congregation that depends on multiple volunteers to run our office, CMD is an affordable way to track our membership and contributions. The learning time is minimal compared to one of the “big guy” programs, which is important to our less computer-oriented volunteers. I spend much less time dealing with resolving ‘help issues’ and I have happy volunteers who can complete their tasks as an offering to God and not a test in patience.” The Rev’d. Keith Acker, Church of Christ The King Episcopal Church, Alpine, CA “I have been a user of CMD for over 15 years. I find it to be not only useful, but a bargain as well.” Shane Owens, Pastor, Covenant Presbyterian Church, Gainesville, FL “It’s the church secretary’s best friend. I can keep track of all our members, interests, and newsletter contacts. I can make changes quickly and easily. I can organize and print people by any category I choose. And for the first time we will be able to make our own pictorial church directory saving hundreds of dollars. My rolodex is collecting dust because the CMD is so much more useful and practical. You’ve been awesome in quickly responding to my questions and patiently guiding me in how to make the most of the CMD. I really appeciate this program!” Lisa Root, Secretary, Wenatchee Adventist Church, WA
