Last time I counted, there were over 200 software companies. That number grows every year!
Are most of them what they chalk themselves up to be? A quick scan through the reviews and prices for these software companies suggests otherwise.
Did you know the average yearly cost of church management software is around $1,000? And that's for a church under 200 people! This is the biggest reason many ministers feel church software is overrated. They're paying money for something that isn't adding equivalent value to the ministry
Many ChMS companies are behind the times, functioning like an off-brand of Windows XP! Some even require that you do things like take several training courses or attend multiple live webinars in order to to use their software. Learning anything new takes time...but church software should never take days to learn.
Church management software should be more than just a tool. It needs to complement your ministry and help you accomplish your mission.
Cost and ease of use are big indications that a company exists to either be a blessing or a burden. Other indications are how easy it is to get support and the company offering other resources for free (e.g. an active Youtube channel).
No matter what we do, our goal is to be a blessing to your ministry, not a burden. Here's what that looks like:
Since day one we've put ministry first. We will always keep ChurchTrac the most affordable and user-friendly church software. That's because equipping churches to build the body of Christ is our mission.
Let's build the body of Christ together!
