We know what it's like to serve on the front lines of church ministry. In fact, ChurchTrac was created by a pastor, and today our staff continues to be actively involved in ministry within the local church. That's why we're committed to providing you with the tools you need at a price that's reasonable.
We get this question a lot. ChurchTrac was created by pastors with a heart for the local church. Our desire is to be a help and a blessing to your ministry. We believe that God has called and chosen the local Christian church to impact the world by spreading the message of His Son Jesus Christ. ChurchTrac Software exists to support the mission of the churches and ministries who share this belief and to equip its leaders to do effective ministry. We are committed to helping Christian churches, ministries and leaders by providing excellent products and support at a price that is super reasonable.
We get this question some too. We work hard to provide what we think is an amazing product at a reasonable price. On average our prices are about one fourth of what others with similar products charge--and in some cases we charge less than one tenth of what others charge! (And we actually publish our prices!) We try to give you a lot for what you pay too, like outstanding tech support, 24/7 server monitoring, offsite backups, and on-going application development. Plus, we include lots of extras that others charge for, like child check-in, congregation (member) access, and additional user accounts. We don't charge silly fees like setup fees, import fees or support fees.
Are you a new church? We love church plants, and we would love to help if we can. Please get in touch with us and we can get you a customized quote to fit your ministry needs and budget.
Absolutely. If you want to pay yearly, then your cost is equal to the monthly price multipled by 10. Paying yearly is like getting two months free!
Never have, never will. We think it is just silly to charge a setup fee. Shame on those who do. Some companies charge hundreds of dollars to import your data to their application. We will gladly help you prepare and import your current names to your new account.
Yes, each individual that you enter will count toward the total number of names you can enter with your selected plan. However, you can archive inactive or unused names, and archived names do not count toward the number of names you can enter.
No problem. You can increase your name capacity at any time. We'll just prorate the amount that is due based on your next renewal date using our monthly price schedule.
|1 Email can be sent from ChurchTrac using one of our third-party email partners, or by synchronizing your contacts to MailChimp. We do not charge any additional fees for sending email, but some third party providers may charge you a fee for their services. Many bulk email providers do offer a free option, but most will require that you send bulk messages from a web domain name that you own (e.g.: firstname.lastname@example.org). CTO also has the ability to send voice and text messages, and prices start at 5 cents per voice message recipient, and 2.5 cents per text message recipient. To enable SMS messaging, you'll also need to purchase a dedicated phone number which adds $2/month or $20/year when paying yearly. Voice and text messaging features are currently only available in the United States and Canada.|
