Visitor Testimonials

*Terressa! I received the discs today!! A few years back I was at a small church that used your software and it was perfect for their volunteers to use. The church I am at now has 2 volunteer secretaries and one found your product and I gushed!!! Her first request is a directory so this will be perfect. God Bless you for creating such a great system (Shepherdbase). Regards - Tonya - OK - U.S.
*Disclaimer
*This is the 1st time I've visited your website and I just wanted to say "thank you". I go to a very small Christian Church and thanks to you, the forms you have for a children's ministry will keep me from having to "reinvent the wheel" and I am very grateful to you. We are a very small church (about 40 regular attendees) and 90% of those are over 65. We just had a young couple offer to help us get a Youth Group. Thanks to you, we won't have to do to much to get this off and running for the holiday season. Thanks again! - Kentucky - U.S.

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer
  • 7. So much more.

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
