The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is pleased to partner with Parish Data System to bring software solutions for your parish membership, stewardship, management and financial accounting needs. It is the only approved and supported Orthodox Software. Church Office is being rolled out across the country, regional training is taking place, and Ledger is also available now. Ledger comes preloaded with the National Chart of Accounts, and a separate sample database module, allowing for “what-if” scenarios without affecting your actual data.
We’ve included many Orthodox features, and continue to develop the program in conjunction with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. Here’s a small portion of what we’ve incorporated so far.
And additional features are currently in development.
We believe it is part of our ministry to help you use technology to minister to your Parish. For this purpose we have developed a process for evangelizing your local community through Stewardship. We have included worksheets, reports, sample letters, labels, payment booklets, in short, the ideas to help you use the information you have in PDS Church Office to initiate or enhance a Ministry and Stewardship campaign to those enrolled at your church. PDS takes you from the beginning of your Stewardship campaign through goal reporting and progress reports.
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and PDS have a joint Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which covers all Greek Orthodox parishes in the United States. This includes:
Training is available via a variety of methods including:
Yes, you can continue to use QuickBooks or you can use PDS Ledger. Quick posting process of payments and donations from Church Office will generate a file that can be imported into either QuickBooks or PDS Ledger. PDS Ledger is now in full production, and available to all of our parishes.
Yes, your data will be converted and migrated from your current program to PDS Church Office.
PDS and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese have teamed together for a multi-year partnership. The program continues to evolve, and new modules are being released.
We are working closely with Effie Marie Smith as we coordinate and schedule program rollout and implementation plans. Since the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America will be covering the costs of the program and for the first year for all the parishes, Effie Marie asks that parishes interested contact her directly for more information. Please contact Effie Marie Smith at 1-212-774-0273 or email her at EMSmith@goarch.org.
