  • Rock RMS is Released

    It recently came to my attention that someone thought the Rock project was dead because the team members were not blogging about it on our personal blogs. How far from the truth! In all fairness, we probably should have told everyone months ago to go read the Rock blog for the latest details about it. So please go do that now... Let me just ...

  • Rock Beta Status

    From a blogging perspective, I've been in a cave for the past 6-12 months helping to get Rock into it's beta phase.  If you are hungry for Rock news, hopefully you're plugged into our podcasts, our Getting Started docs, our Q & A system, or Jon's Rock blog posts.  Those sources will help you know what's going ...

  • RefreshCache is Four Weeks Away

    RefreshCache (RC) is four weeks away, so if you've been slacking it's not too late to register. If you do so before Sept 30th, you'll be eligible to win the Surface RT we're giving away. This year we're experimenting by joining forces with the great guys and gals that run the National Church IT RoundTable (aka CITRT or Church ...

  • Rock ChMS Update

    A little over a year ago the Spark Development Network was formed and at RefreshCache v3 we announced our intentions to begin developing a Church Management System called Rock ChMS.  Where are we now? Well, hopefully you've subscribed to the semi-regular newsletters we've been sending out.  If you didn't, go do ...

  • Mobile Phone Check-in

    Last year I told you about our problem of trying to check-in 1750+ kids ( at roughly the same time to avoid the long line that growing as our Vacation Bible School program grows each year.  I hinted that the solution might be to ...

  • 5th Generation Arena ChMS Website

    Today marks the launch of our 5th Arena ChMS powered website.  This time around it was more of a cosmetic face-lift, and as far as the switch-over was concerned, we used all the tricks we learned last time to make the change very smooth (more on that below).  The bulk of the switch took 8 seconds (scripted), about 1 hour of minor ...

  • Rock ChMS, An Open Source Church Management System and CMS Framework

    I've joined forces with an initially small team of developers and artists to form the Spark Development Network ( and we are creating a new, open source Church Management System (ChMS) called Rock ChMS. You can read the press release if you wish. This may come as no surprise to some of you after hearing me last ...

  • Custom IE Error Page (DNSERROR.HTM)

    When you use a web based kiosk for your attendant-less check-in system, you should think about what's going to happen if your network fails you -- especially if you're using the 3G network.  This is what you'll see if the kiosk cannot reach the server:   That page is especially problematic if you don't have a keyboard ...

  • I'm Defeated: Community Communications

    I admit defeat. I can't keep up with all the community posts in the Arena community forums anymore.  Actually, I would have to say it started at some point during 2010.  I just would not admit it until today.  I guess this might also mean the.Community has become a pretty successful tool for certain things ArenaChMS! Anyhow as ...

  • Jason Offutt == JSON Data

    My good friend and co-worker, Jason Offutt, recently started blogging over at  (Yes, not only is he a developer and an artist, he's also a great writer!)  In our spare time, Jason and I have been working on a couple of open source projects. One of them, his baby, is an MVC ...
