Location: Pensacola, FL
Serving 18 counties in northwestern Florida, the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee is one of the newer dioceses in the region. Many of its parishes shuffled from diocese to diocese before the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee was established just over 50 years ago. But since its inception, the diocese has seen much growth and change. Over its short lifespan, it continues to bring people into the fold where they can enjoy the magnificent glory of God together.
The Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee and its parishes used multiple church management software solutions over the years but always struggled to get successful staff engagement with the platforms. The challenge was finding an all-inclusive system that was also web-based that would reduce extra, time-consuming steps to complete tasks and remove limits on where staff members could work. Despite years of seeking a solution, the diocese was unable to find one that met the needs of both the diocese and its parishes. That was until they found MinistryPlatform.
MinistryPlatform changed everything for the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee. The diocesan staff can see the difference MinistryPlatform made in their parishes when they look at the data itself. They can see how parishes are using the platform to track religious education, sacraments, and offerings each week when there was little to no engagement from the parishes with previous systems. With regular updates and pricing that doesn’t break the bank, the ministry leaders in the diocese are finally able to keep everything in one place and access whatever they need wherever they are. Now, the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee can focus on their calling to serve the parishes in northwestern Florida instead of fighting to make their management system work for them.
“For our parishes, a lot of them like the fact that they have more tools available with MinistryPlatform, the processes are better, and there are way more options for reporting. Most of our end users have caught on and are successfully using MinistryPlatform and doing more with it than the tools they had previously.”
