Nucleus Overview

What is Nucleus?

Nucleus is a church management software designed to help organizations manage sermons, communication, online giving, and more via a unified portal. The platform includes a giving module, which enables users to integrate a donation section across websites, allowing donors to use credit cards or bank transfers for donations.

The website building tools in Nucleus let administrators design, launch, and maintain personalized websites using custom themes, logos, colors, videos, and other content to establish brand identity with the target audience. It offers a variety of features including a drag-and-drop editor, payments processing, member accounts, role-based permissions, recurring transactions, notes, and more. Supervisors can also utilize the built-in media library to create worship backgrounds, motion tiles, and social media posts using high definition videos and images to engage with volunteers, worshippers, and participants across various social channels.

Nucleus facilitates integration with a host of third-party applications such as Rock RMS, Faith Teams, Shelby, Google Calendar, MailChimp, Google Analytics, and HubSpot. Managers can also filter transactions by date, funds, payment methods or other criteria and gain insights into giving history, members, cash, gifts, revenue, and other metrics via reports.

Nucleus Blows Everything Else Out of this World!

Our church has saved hundreds of dollars because we don't have to hire all the staff necessary to produce and maintain the images, videos, and web hosting. Also, our church has saved hundreds of hours of time because we don't have to create all of these beautiful items from scratch.

Church related software & support that is ahead of it's time.

Before we joined Nucleus, our website was a static page that hadn't been updated in 5 years. There was no reason for our own members to ever check in because nothing ever changed. It was effective at one thing though, creating a sad first impression for newcomers looking for a church home. We will never know how many people came to our old website and were quickly turned away due to outdated information and stock photos. Nucleus has been a breath of fresh air.

A good choice but costly for startups

Nucleus was the first company I used to set up our new ministry website.

Absolutely worth ever penny and then some!

I am absolutly thrilled, things that used to take hours now take mere moments and look 10 times better. The nucleus social saves me HOURS of work time.

Running w/ a TEAM that is ahead of the curve in the ever changing Social World was the Game...

The problem we faced as a company was we kept telling people to visit us, come to us. Nucleus helped us easily ENGAGE with our customers/people/friends & really do what social platforms are intended for us to be SOCIAL.

2. A beautiful place to host all of your church's sermons
3. Unlimited downloads to authentic video footage
4. Done for you social media posts that you can copy and paste to your social media accounts

Cons

Nothing! Everything that Nucleus offers is amazing and the team behind it keeps releasing new helpful features.

Pros

The simplicity is unbeatable. For the price, there is nothing like it. I am one of 2 staff members at a small rural church with little to no budget for anything website or media related. The services which Nucleus offers are constantly improving. Not to mention their incredibly friendly and effective staff that are there to help you every step of the way.

Cons

There are of course downsides to any software. The main thing I have seen is the trade-off of creative freedom in the formatting on the part of the administrator. In other website builders, you will have countless templates, where currently there is only one format for your Nucleus site. This is a minor downside when you consider the clean, modern, and simple user experience. Something that is missing from most church websites.

Nucleus was the first company I used to set up our new ministry website.

Pros

I liked the fact that Nucleus was so easy to set up. I liked the ease of integrating options within Nucleus.

Cons

The thing that I liked least about Nucleus was the cost. As a small and independent ministry, the cost is everything. Nucleus proveds to be just too expensive for us.

Pros

What I like MOST about this software is that it's Mobile first.
The company realizes that every user is going to experience its desired destination on their mobile device first. You can see it in every decision Nucleus makes with their services. So not only do they have us in mind as the customer but they also have our target audience in mind as well. That says a lot about Nucleus.

Cons

What I like LEAST about this software. I was going to say cost at first but with all the services they keep adding on they cleared up the Cons list. Seriously.
