About Servant Keeper

Servant Keeper is an automation-focused church management software which offers both a desktop application and web-based and mobile apps. Accomplish everything from pledge campaigns to child check-in with one system!

Servant Keeper supports both individual and family profiles, enabling users to store connected members’ information all in one place. All profiles are automatically shown in the main list on login, which can be customized to only show the profiles of members a user regularly interacts with. Profiles can be tailored to users’ needs with the option to add custom information fields and tabs, and information entry includes autofill and drop-down menus, designed to reduce repetitive typing. Multi-level security allows users to assign roles with specific access permissions, and use these to prevent unauthorized viewing of personal information by members.

Individuals can be segmented into groups, with the option to send emails, create nametags, and extend event invitations to entire groups. Users can print customizable group reports, and use the in-built mail merge feature to produce personalized letters for all group members.

Users can track donations in Servant Keeper, using either the donor’s name or their envelope number, with memorized transactions allowing for the automatic entry of previous gifts. Split transactions can be recorded, complete audit trails are generated for all adjustments, users can view graphs and charts of giving, and customizable contribution statements can be produced for donors’ records. Servant Keeper also includes multiple report templates, such as attendance reports, member lists, important dates and events, members' skills, interests and resources, and activity reports, which can be customized to include different information fields.

Multiple optional add-ons for Servant Keeper can be purchased separately, including SK Check-In, SK Giving, and more.

SK allows us to have one database that all staff use to keep track of our members, potential members, friends. We track contacts with all in our database, add pictures, notes, visits, attendance. We have added Protect My Ministry to do background checks.

Pros

SK is extremely user friendly and intuitive. It provides a full range of capabilities from basic demographics, attendance, contribution processing and reporting to group e-mails, data sorting on nearly every field, "dashboard" information to get church info in a quick format and well trained, easily available customer support. SK converted 3 years worth of contribution information and all the demographic information from our old system and helped us configure to our needs with SK8 under the "white glove" experience. Training videos provided were excellent. On-going webinars and live training have also been well worth my time. We have all staff set up with the Mobile Ministry app so they can find e-mail, telephone or address while on the go.

Cons

I only had one issue that has been a problem, but SK corrected it in an update.

Reasons for Choosing Servant Keeper

The software was old, was no longer going to be supported and I did not like Shelby Next. We needed something much more user friendly with a wide variety of capabilities.

Reasons for Switching to Servant Keeper

SK is a recommended partner by the General Council on Finance & Administration (GCFA) of the United Methodist Church. After seeing this recommendation, I reviewed the software on-line, attended some webinars and talked with the sales rep for Wisconsin. She provided all of the information that I needed and a quote that covered the full conversion and on-going costs. The entire process of working with Servant Keeper has been positive.

Servant Keeper The Choice in Church Software Innovative and Integrative; Relational Software

We have integrated our accounting and membership departments. We have had been able to communicate more effectively and efficiently with the congregation through the SK Notify tools. We are expanding our functionality by adding Event Brite, Check In and Cloud Directory. We anticipate simpler processes and more excellence with the addition of these tools. Having the ability to equip others to utilize the SK tools definitely supports stronger relationships which in turn supports less money for staffing due to the time saved through equipping others. SK continues to impress me with their ability to listen and hear their audience by remaining innovative with their software.

Pros

The synergy for how all the modules work together. The opportunity to add add on modules when ready both financially and with personnel. The Cloud version is outstanding and the addition of the apps. Time saving! Connectivity at its best! These additions bring the corporation, the leadership and the attendees into relationship because of the tools. Our organization has always appreciated the Support Desk. When i think of Servant Keeper SERVANT always a listening ear and continual support via phone, email or on site trainings. KEEPER committed to excellent support and excellent products.

Cons

There is definitely a learning curve however the Webinars, Trainings, Tutorials, Support Desk make it possible for anyone to use SK.

It served us well in our early years as a church. But as our needs grew, SK didnt work for us. Great price. Great folks. Very limited functionality. If you're needing a simple solution JUST to keep up with donations, this will work. If you need more than that, this product might not be the best for you.

Pros

Not much. I think the staff at SK are great and fine people, but the software is lacking!

Cons

The GUI is archaic, outdated, and looks like one has taken a trip back into Windows 95.
The install is awkward, at least on a Mac.
There arent a ton of feature that can be done with this software. Reporting is limited, and there's no workflows, automated reporting, member portal, attendance module, etc.

Response from Faithlife

Hi Michael,

Thank you for using Servant Keeper.

We actually do have a member portal, attendance module, in-depth dashboard reporting and much more on our latest version of the cloud.

Plus, Servant Keeper has just joined the Faithlife Family. Faithlife, the makers of Logos Bible Software, is now working hand-in-hand with Servant Keeper. This means as of today, Servant Keeper customers now have access to more tools than ever before, and at special pricing! Not only can ministries manage their membership and contributions, they can access online giving, better manage events, offer their church members and ministry team Logos Bible software and Faithlife TV, run a professional and automated website, schedule and run effective ministry services with impactful presentations, and so much more.

We encourage you to take a look at all that's possible. As always, we're here to help you if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Servant Keeper

Has improved workflow, aides in pulling key information for annual reports, and stores more than just member data.

Pros

Customization and user defined fields in a variety of field types are key in making the most of member data. Servant Keeper really delivers in this area.

Cons

I come from a database management background and might be more skilled than some office staff. The product may be overwhelming to some. The help-desk is subscription based and there is no access to the knowledgebase forum if you are not subscribed. This is disappointing as there could be value in users helping each other. Am hoping that with the Faithlife relationship that this will change in the future.
