Helping churches do the boring stuff.

(i.e. the stuff that really matters)

Our goal is to provide tools and resources to help with the everyday grind of ministry. Things like writing sermons, planning church services, keeping track of prayer requests, and serving each other.

Church Tools Classic

Our original suite of tools for helping churches with sermons, prayer requests and websites, available for $150 per year.
