Concordia Technology Solutions (CTS) is the technology division of Concordia Publishing House (CPH), a not-for-profit church-based organization that has been serving the needs of churches since 1869.

Because of the rich history of CPH and the depth of its employees who also serve their churches in various roles, CTS has a rich understanding of the unique and changing technology needs of God’s people.

Since we started selling software in 1984, Concordia Technology Solutions has worked to provide software solutions for the unique challenges that churches face and to give you and other ministry leaders management software that suits your unique needs—whether you’re a pastor, financial secretary, administrator, church secretary, or volunteer.

Our Mission

Because we believe church management software isn’t just about getting organized, we are here to help you work smarter so you can focus on what really matters—ministering to the people in your church and community. We are here to provide you with the tools you need to get to know the people you serve and to turn that knowledge into increased outreach opportunities and points of connection.

Whether your church is small, mega-sized, or something in between, we have church management software suited for you. Learn more about our products.

Our History

Before the establishment of Concordia Technology Solutions, Concordia Publishing House continually made use of technological advances—from telephones in the 1880s to computers in the 1960s. But with the advent of the Internet and today’s unique web-based church management software solutions, Concordia Technology Solutions was established to provide God’s people with even more innovative solutions to help them share the Gospel around the world.

In the 1980s we released our first DOS-based software package to provide CPH customers with a solution to reduce time spent on tracking member and financial information.

As technology expanded and with the release of the Windows® operating system, we introduced Shepherd’s Staff® version 1.0 in 1994. Now, Shepherd’s Staff is used by thousands of churches nationwide, including denominations such as Lutheran, United Methodist, Catholic, Assembly of God, and Baptist.

In 2004 we released MemberConnect, web-based church intranet software that encouraged internal communication among church leadership and throughout the congregation. With its easy-to-use interface and robust features, MemberConnect provided churches a way to communicate important information quickly and effectively.

In 2009 MemberCaller was released to provide churches with voice messaging software to help them reach any number of people at a moment’s notice.

In late 2012 we announced the release of the Church360° suite—Church360° Members, Church360° Unite, and Church360° Ledger. This new suite of web-based church management software provides churches with a total solution to managing their member information, website, and financial information. These products provide the ultimate flexibility in church management.

Most important, Concordia Technology Solutions is a dedicated team that provides customers with top-notch technical support. We are your team.
