    Success Story

    Grace Church of Overland Park

    Baker Tilly Helps Kansas City area Church gain insight

    Background

    Grace Church is located in the southeastern suburb of Overland Park, Kansas and is led by Senior Pastor, Tim Howey. It is a fast growing church planning to open a second location. After a rigorous software evaluation, Grace Church chose Baker Tilly's platform over other on-premises and cloud solutions as the best faith based financial accounting software to meet the needs of the organization.

    The Baker Tilly team has a ton of church experience and I could really lean on them when I needed to.

    Previous accounting challenges

    • Grace Church's main issues apparent in the lack of reporting within QuickBooks available to their church finance team, and the tremendous amount of time spent outside the system and in Excel preparing reports for the church's leadership. Many reports weren't available to leaders at all.
    • Without the necessary financial and operational reporting like a modern online church accounting software offers, church leaders were unable to make strategic decisions, track spending or create budgets and forecasts without a great deal of manual work.

    I knew that I had a team backing me up as we walked through this. For other software implementations I’ve been involved in I got the feeling that folks hadn’t done many. I didn’t get that feeling with Baker Tilly.
