A New Adventure

For the last 13 years I’ve had the opportunity to work for an amazing church, Christ’s Church of the Valley (CCV). Over those years I’ve worked with talented people on some incredible projects. Many of those projects involved developing applications with David Turner.

As of today our most recent development project, the Rock Relationship Management System, is taking us on a new journey. We are stepping out of our roles on staff to become independent consultants in a new venture called Mine Cart Studio. Our first project will be the continued rollout of Rock at CCV through October. After that time we will expand our focus to consult with other churches that require implementation services and custom development.

You can read more about out next steps on the Spark blog. In the meantime, both David and I would highly value your prayers as we make this transition. If there is anything we can do to help you please drop us a line.

RockRMS 1.0 Released


Wow, it’s been a while since my last post! We’ve been incredibly busy working on Rock. Literally… not sure when was the last time my eye’s weren’t stinging… but… as of two weeks ago we released Rock 1.0!!! Below are a couple of links to help you understand what Rock is…

You might be asking what’s next… Trust us we’re only getting started. There’s still a ton to do. Check our road map for the details of the start of what’s next (there’s so much more that hasn’t been added to the roadmap yet). Be sure to follow the Rock blog to keep up with what’s new…


Rock RMS

If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been lately, here’s an update.  For the past 3-4 years a small group of church developers have been working on a new next-generation ChMS. Our dream was to be able to provide a free open-source solution for churches of all sizes.  That dream is about to become a reality.  The Rock RMS (Relationship Management System) is literally just a few weeks from an open beta.

If you you’d like more information on this new system I’d encourage you to:

Getting this far has taken an insane amount of effort, but we’re very happy with where we’re at with the project.  Keep in mind though the beta is just the beginning. What you’ll see is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s actually done.  Many features will be added shortly after as we finish the polish and documentation.
