After more than twelve years as a purely volunteer venture ChurchInfo has teamed up with a small company called ChurchInfo Services to provide hosting service and automated installation.  This service is designed to be an inexpensive option for churches that don’t have access to the necessary technical skills to build and maintain their own installations.  There is no change to the core mission and values of the ChurchInfo project.  The goal is to expand the availability of ChurchInfo to more churches, especially those which found the initial installation to be too much of a hurdle.

Here is a link to the ChurchInfo Services web site.

    I have dealt with Mike in the past, and I’m sure he is well intentioned, but, even is MalwareBytes is being hyperactive, this is a terrible first impression.

    Someone locally just asked me if I could recommend a database to manage membership and donations tracking, and I was reacquainting myself with what’s happening at ChurchDb… but this is not good look…

    Congrats on new release. It’s curious that there’s this big gap between July 2018 and April 2023.

  2. I’m very sorry that you got redirected to some spam site. The internet demons are constantly trying to break into web sites. Please let me know promptly if this happens again. I updated to a more recent version of Joomla and am working on switching over to WordPress.

    About the big gap in releases- my own church decided to switch to a commercial product so I haven’t had the regular input from an active installation. The PHP development team forced me to either update or give up. I decided to update. I still have some active installations on churchinfoservices.com.

    Mike
