Ministry Intelligence

Increase trust with visibility into your church metrics

Automatically see the key performance indicators (KPIs) and insights that help you successfully deliver on your mission.

    Make decisions based on data

    Ministry Intelligence by Baker Tilly was developed based on extensive experience working with hundreds of growing churches like yours. If you're like many, your church is  struggling without easy access to the church metrics that communicate the impact of your ministry to senior leadership.

    Every one of these churches was ready to ditch their Excel-based processes that lagged weeks behind, were manual, error prone and lacked the details needed to truly know where to focus donations, build a new church plant or seat a new pastor. With Ministry Intelligence from Baker Tilly, you'll get visual dashboards that highlight the KPIs and insights that help you successfully deliver on your mission.
