ChurchMetrics is Live

After we announced the development of, many of you have expressed an interest in trying out the tool for your church.  The wait is over…we just officially launched Our Digerati team has been hard at work on this free web app and today we’re happy to share it with you.

ChurchMetrics helps you keep tabs on attendance, giving, salvations, and baptisms through easy-to-understand charts and reports. We developed it because we wanted a simple way to monitor patterns in these areas at all of our campuses.  We also wanted a simple way to input the data on the weekends without having to pass around and share Excel spreadsheets.  We’ve found that having quick access to this data helps us see where we need to make adjustments to stay on course with our mission.  Also, if you’re anything like me, you’ll especially enjoy the mobile features that allow you to both update and view information from any web enabled mobile phone.

To keep ChurchMetrics streamlined and simple, we’ve limited the app to track four core areas: attendance, giving, salvations and baptisms.  So instead of trying to replace your contact management system or church membership software, ChurchMetrics is focused on giving you and your team an easy, straightforward place to add, access, and learn from the numbers at your church.

Try it out, tell your friends, and let us know what you think below!

    The app looks great, really streamlined and easy to use. I did have a question: why did you separate the kids attendance, but you didn’t separate youth/student attendance?

    I would beg you to at least give the option to add the children into the total attendance. Without that option I can’t use this application. I need to be able to do a full report on total attendance (kids included) and a report on just kids attendance.

    Could you please add Lagos, Nigeria to the Timezone… it’s not nice to have countries of the world not listed on a “global” timezone

    Steve, you could treat the Children’s Church as another campus and name it appropriately… at least that can be a temporary work around. What do you think?

    What is the underlying technology/platform/language that churchmetrics is built on/in. Python, .NET, Java, PHP?

    Thanks. It is wonderful to play around with for day and I am sure it will be of great help as we move forward with it.

    PC or Mac? I’m assuming this is a Windows app?

  14. Oct 29, 2008 at 10:18 am

    Stevo, the underlying technology is LAMP. Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. We are also using Memcached, and the PHP framework is KohanaPHP.

    Church metrics might be great but it sure is hard to set up an account. It refuses everything I’ve tried today. Support only works if you already have an account. At least that is all I can find.
    So, if anyone has any ideas e-mail me.
    Just not very user friendly so far…

    We liked using, but as of 3/17/09 it doesn’t seem to be working anymore. Can anyone tell me what’s going on?

  20. Apr 7, 2011 at 10:39 am

    I cannot seem to update my data. When I do - it doesn’t take into account the change. (ex: with giving numbers)
