    Success Story

    Harvest Christian Fellowship

    Baker Tilly's helps multi-site Texas Church gain better visibility into financials

    Background

    Harvest Christian Fellowship was founded by Pastor Paul Cypert in 1988 in Plainview, TX. Pastor Paul had a dream from God of a church full of people young at heart worshipping Jesus. He started the church as a Life Group with a few families that met in the living room of his house. Today, Harvest Christian Fellowship ministers to over 2,000 people every Sunday at three campuses. Over the years they have also worked with international ministries to share the love and Word of God with people in Africa, Poland, Bulgaria and Mexico. After a rigorous software evaluation, Harvest Christian Fellowship chose Sage Intacct over other on-premises and cloud solutions as the best fit to meet the unique needs presented by its ongoing expansion.

    I've been through 6 technology implementations, and this was the best I've ever seen.

    Previous accounting challenges

    • Their biggest problem was a lack of reporting, most of which was done in Excel, combining financial data with data from Fellowship One.
    • The finance team's month-end close process was tedious and time-consuming, and they had limited visibility into specific campus allocations.
    • Harvest Christian Fellowship was unable to get reports by location without a great deal of manual work.

    Baker Tilly's benefits for our church are clearly substantial and the system will help us move into the future. Baker Tilly's team showed amazing communication and organization, and went above and beyond for us.
