Software for Church Planters

Church Software

R Kevin Chessher, CPA


I’m a church planter.  Do I need church management and accounting software?  If so, which one should I use?

After spending over 25 years serving churches financial needs, this one is easy to answer.  No matter how small your church, you need a way to manage members, contributions and financial information.  For a church planter, the best church membership and church accounting application I’ve found is FlockBase. 

FlockBase Church Membership Software tracks membership, family information, contributions, funds, pledges, groups, and attendance. In also provides year-end contribution letters, funds reports, family reports in text or photo format, and mailing labels. It is easy to organize your membership with FlockBase.

FlockBase is also designed to serve churches that depend on volunteers. While FlockBase membership and contribution software is designed with the small church in mind, the functions available provide capabilities that large churches need as well.

Church Accounting Software by FlockBase was developed by a CPA with more than 20 years of experience providing accounting and consulting services to churches.  He realizes that churches need a simple way to track their funds, revenues and expenses.  FlockBase meets your fund accounting needs!

Although some popular software packages meet the needs of most for-profit businesses, they do not meet the fund accounting needs of churches. FlockBase Accounting was specifically designed to meet the needs of churches like yours.

Both of these applications are continually being upgraded and offer subscriptions for support if you desire.  We have found them to be easy to use and very helpful in managing the needs church plants.  More information can be found at
