We've got so much to share with you!

You are doing the Lord’s work, and we truly believe there is nothing more important than the ministry you provide day in and day out. But ministry is not easy. There’s no single formula that works 100% of the time. It’s a constant challenge, and there’s always something new to tackle. That’s why we work extremely hard every day to provide the best church management software and service options.

You're never alone.

We’re here to partner in the the success of your ministry. If there is anything you need, please make us the first ones you ask. We’ve got your back.

We pass on what we've learned to you.

We’ve worked with churches of all different traditions, sizes, budgets, and teams. We’ve seen what works and how churches have made customizations for their unique needs. We’re happy to share what we’ve seen.

We've built ourselves around serving you.

We’ve built the largest support department in the industry and employ teams of people working on multiple aspects of ministry support. We’re confident we can provide you the best support around.

Migration Assistance

Change takes effort, but it doesn't have to be hard.

No one understands this more than you. You help people make life changes so they can grow and become all that God has equipped them to be, and so do we. We know changing church management software can feel daunting, but we’ve helped thousands of churches do it, and we make it as simple as possible.

Moving your staff over to our tools is a clear, straight-forward process. Our team can work with you to develop a plan for mapping over your profiles, groups, and contributor records. We can also review your data after it has been converted and offer suggestions for any remaining clean-up. 

We offer direct, one-on-one instruction from certified trainers who can walk you through key areas of your setup process. This 2-hour guided assistance is conducted online through our web conferencing tools and may be divided into two 1-hour increments if preferred. Any number of your staff are welcome to sit together for this training. Instruction will cover whatever areas you wish to prioritize for your training, such as: admin setup, managing people profiles, giving, ministry areas, and accounting.

With thousands of successful launches already to their credit, our launch team can help you utilize proven best practices to achieve your ministry goals. Many of our coaches are former church staff who understand how churches operate. We can help you implement whichever ChMS you choose effectively and launch it successfully to your staff and church.

Rollout is the process of engaging your church family. For example, Realm® is an excellent tool for your ministry staff, but it also connects your church family in amazing new ways. So after you’ve transitioned your staff to Realm, we can equip them with ideas, materials, and guidance for rolling out Realm’s free mobile app (Realm Connect) to your entire church.

Personalized Training & Consultation

You're the place people look for answers, and so are we.

Software alone does not make ministry successful, so we’re here to help you with the other parts too. We’ve got over 40 years of experience, we’ve worked with tens of thousands of churches, and we understand the challenges you face every day. We can’t wait to share what we’ve learned with you.

Unmatched Support

If you have to take calls in the middle of the night, so do we.

We’re passionate about supporting your ministry with service levels that consistently rank above our competitors. We offer several support options and have teams of people to help your ministry reach its full potential.
