Why use Presby?

MyPresby is built for the Presbyterian Church

There are many church management systems (software) available today, some for free others very expensive.

 Why use MyPresby?

  1. This has a denominational structure, where you can view and communicate with all members at a General Assembly, Presbytery and Congreational level.
  2. This uses Presbyterian language! The members' titles, church structures and systems are all laid out specifically for Presbyterians for a Presbyterian System.
  3. It is affordable at a very low cost, because it is developed and maintained by a set of Non Profit Companies all connected to the Denominations.
  4. It has dedicated support staff so you have direct contact with the marketer and developer, with whom you can give input for new features and reports at no extra cost.
  5. It saves money, because our mobile App (that comes with the system to allow you to send push notifications to your members) is FREE, and so you save on SMS costs.
  6. It is under ongoing development, as more congregations use the system, so there are more requests for new features and these will be added. Once we have developed a new requested feature it becomes available for all uses, so we are all developing OUR Church Management System together.
  7. It has an integrated financial system, allowing for the capturing of pledges and pledge payments. As well as running the parish books which are instantly reported to the diocese.
