1.0 ABSTRACT

In African continent where most developing countries can be found like Ghana always see database to be important and necessary in only business organization forgetting that church administration also need it most valuable information to be properly stored in a safe place.

We realized that most Christian communities (churches) in such countries lack the proper keeping of records of her members and other day-to-day activities due to the old ways of using flat file system and book keeping. We saw that the old ways of book keeping and the flat file system brought about a lot of disadvantages such as inaccuracy of data, errors and omissions of important data during recording and other problems. A Church Management System is an all-in-one system for managing communications, finance, events, reports, small groups, human resources, children check-in’s and more - all accessible via any computer.
