Think Ministry and Higher Ground Technologies
join ACS Technologies.
“A cord of three strands is not easily broken.”
We are excited that Think Ministry and Higher Ground Technologies are now a part of the ACS Technologies family. Together as one company, we provide a comprehensive suite of solutions and services for churches of all sizes, denominational offices, and dioceses.
What is Think Ministry?
Think Ministry is a fellow church management software provider that caters to larger churches and diocese. MinistryPlatform, their church management solution, is a flexible system that includes multiple third-party integrations and an open API.
What is Higher Ground?
Higher Ground provides a wide range of managed services ideal for churches, denominational offices, and diocese, including hosting, phone systems, and web security. Higher Ground also hosts many of Think Ministry’s ministry partners.
Why did ACS Technologies partner with them?
Our heart for the church and putting our ministry partners first are what brought us together. We realized that putting our passion and teams together would create an amazing portfolio of solutions and services for all ministry partners.
Will our ACS Technologies solutions go away?
Think Ministry and Higher Ground have joined the ACS Technologies family to give you more options to further your ministry. Each of our solutions will continue to grow and thrive.
Will I be forced to move to MinistryPlatform?
No – all your ACS Technologies solutions you know and love will continue to be developed and supported. Our goal is to meet the needs of your individual church, denominational office, and diocese. MinistryPlatform is another option now included in our suite of solutions and services to meet that goal.
How will this affect the future of my ACS Technologies software?
No resources will be reallocated from our other solutions; the entire Think Ministry team is also joining ACS Technologies and will operate normally. Development, services, and support of our existing solutions will not be affected.
How does MinistryPlatform differ from Realm?
Both solutions are comprehensive and enable staff, pastors, church leaders, and congregants.
Realm was created to serve all churches, leveraging best practices and feedback from our ACS Technologies ministry partners. MinistryPlatform was designed to be flexible with customization options, APIs, and integrations to fit the needs of an individual church or Diocese.
If you’re not sure which solution is right for you, your account manager can help you determine the best option.
