We are have been using this software for years and is very easy to use. The accounting section is great.

I am a Pastor's wife/Acoounts payable of a small church of about 125 people. We bought church pro and I have been trying to learn how to use it and it is extremely complicated so far.
It is not a simple program to maneuver through.
It makes me frustrated.
Every simple thing I want to do has these complicated steps I need to go through.
I can see I will need to spend hours reading the manual and training myself on how to use this.
We might need to end up paying for training.
Our accounting is very small and we only need a simple accounting program.
I am busy and wanted something simple and easy to use.
If I end up having success with this program I will post back. I have only been working with it for one month.

Caution about ChurchPro
by: Anonymous

Very compicated. Tech support rude and unhelpful. May be OK for a large church with a big budget to pay for tech support.

If you buy, be sure you are getting a basic program, and not an upgrade. Upgrades will not work unless you have the most current previous version. Importing data into upgrade very tricky.

Not intuitive (not user-friendly).

Beware of anonymous post and reviews with no links.

ChurchPro will upgrade from any version. Who ever is writing this stuff about ChurchPro is sadly telling untruths. We give a liberal 90 days of free tech support and a free 20 miniute walk through to get you up and running. ChurchPro's low price for an All-In-One system causes our competitors to have to make up stuff about ChurchPro to sell their product. Out staff in entirely Chrisitan and it is never our intention to be rude to anyone. If you feel you have please send me an email at ChurchPro has thousnands of user world wide and we have been in business over 18 years and PROVEN IN THE WORK PLACE.

I am a secretary at a small church and we have had churchPro for about 3 years. I started working at the church right about 4 months after it was purchased so i had nothing to do with the setup. There is so much you can possibly do, only if it wasn't so complicated. The instruction manual is missing so much info. If you can't figure something out, then you have to call them and pay $50 for service.

Church Pro is not so bad once you figure out how to use it but I too used it for a small church however it is not user friendly and when I ordered they sent no manual and when I realized I was supposed to have a manual and inquired I was instructed to go online and download a copy....reality they should have sent complete package and I have yet to locate additional software. I am NOT a competitor and the sales people are rude!!! To cap it off tech support is radically expensive!

Not User Friendly
by: Pastor

#1 I work for the Lord not a competitor.

We are a smaller congregation of 100 people. Church Pro has a lot of features, but the learning curve is long and tedious.

No one wants to use it. We were unable to use the texting feature, because you have to know some type of code for each of the phone providers.

We ended up paying for a seperate text,email,phone contact program from "One Call Now" and EZ Texting.

They want you to pay for customer support, and they are not very friendly.

We originally bought the 2009 version and paid full price, before we were able to even use CP it was on sale for 1/2 price. They did not honor the sale price with us.

A few years later We had to upgrade to CP 2014 and pay an additional $249, because the 2009 disc we had would not load on our new PC.

The 2014 version is a little easier. Bottom line would be Good if CP offered free support like other software vendors I've used.

I'm Administrative Asst for a very small church. We have been using ChurchPro for almost 10 years. I've been using it for 5 years. The previous admin hated it because he never took the time to learn how to use it. I attended one of their seminars and it made a world of difference. The "manuals" have gotten a lot better and they are always open to suggestions to improve their product and service. I like this program & have never had an issue with customer support - and I have asked some really dumb ?s. Paying per year for customer support is definitely worth it - pays for itself with a couple calls. It may seem high but the price balances out the fairly low cost of the software. I preorder upgrades every 2-3 years and order just tax upgrades in the years between upgrades (you can get just tax upgrades for 2 years after a complete upgrade). We don't even come close to utilizing the program to it's full potential - yet. :)

ChurchPro Software a big mistake & expensive
by: Charles Thornton

Our small church bought ChurchPro 2009 which was very expensive for the Church. After 5 years of trying to use it by others, it was dumped to me and it is impossible to use to the extent it should have been designed. I mainly used it to record giving and then save the data.rtf to Word & copied to Excel to use as input to Word merge our giving detail and receipts to members. ChurchPro reports waste too much ink & paper and add unnecessary words for a proper giving report. Churchpro failed and I tried to restore a previous backup and received "An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past its end" which jammed my computer resulting in having to hold down the power button and restarting my computer. ChurhPro no longer works and I will have to use Microsoft Access, Excel and Word for all of the church accounting. ChurchPro was a waste of needed funds from the beginning.
