ACS Technologies: ACS Technologies is more than a software and services company. We are a group of like-minded people focused on supporting the day to day efforts of your church or school ministry, and we would consider it a privilege to help you.

ChurchTrac Software, Inc: Our company was formed "in the trenches", so to speak, where ministry meets need. ChurchTrac was conceived in 2003 when the company founder, Byron Tedder, developed a software program at the request of his pastor. The church staff was looking for a database to help keep track of spiritual gifts, ministry positions and prospects. So Byron got to work. As additional needs arose, Byron continued to enhance the program to include more and more aspects of church management. In 2004, Byron began offering the software as a ministry to other churches. Thus, ChurchTrac was born. ChurchTrac Online continues in this tradition of powerful, affordable software. Our desire is to be a help and a blessing to your ministry. We believe that God has called and chosen the local Christian church to impact the world by spreading the message of His Son Jesus Christ. ChurchTrac Software exists to support the mission of the churches and ministries who share this belief and to equip its leaders to do effective ministry. We are committed to helping Christian churches, ministries and leaders by providing excellent products and support at a price that is reasonable. Today thousands of churches are benefiting from the tools and services ChurchTrac provides.
