A Whole New Look in Staff Development

We want our churches and our attenders to grow, and to help them do that, we know our church staff must develop.

Development—spiritual, personal, and professional—is one of the most important tools for seeing growth and health in your church.

Since 2014, we’ve offered Develop.Me, a free app created specifically to help church staffs develop. The app equips pastors and their teams to set goals, conduct performance reviews, and grow into the leaders God has called them to be.

And we’re excited to announce there’s a new version of Develop.Me, complete with a cleaner interface and easier-to-use functions.

Current Users

If you’re already using Develop.Me, see the new interface in this video.

Our goal for this update was to make the app even more streamlined and easy-to-use. The new improvements allow you to:

  • See an all-in-one overview of your development plan
  • Comment more easily on goals
  • View your profile in the My Info tab
  • Stay up-to-date with the ‘Latest Activity’ feed
  • Add notes and attachments to a plan
  • Move more easily through the stages of a review

And leaders, you’ll now see an overview of important review dates and a clear list of all direct reports and dotted-line reports on your Team tab.

No need to install anything—these updates are live now! Log in and look around.
