Client Testimonial – “GoodBooks has given me the confidence to serve as our small church bookkeeper”

Ben Kern Goodbooks Quote


If your church does not require a full-service bookkeeping package like the ones Bellwether offers, we have a sister company that serves those smaller congregations. GoodBooks helps pastors and their staff/volunteers learn how to do their own church bookkeeping. We wanted to share a testimonial of a GoodBooks client who signed up earlier this year. We have loved on-boarding and working with Ben to get his church going on an official bookkeeping software. Here is what Ben has to say about his experience so far:

Goodbooks has given me the confidence to serve as our small church bookkeeper.

I have a business degree but I was really hesitant to serve as our church bookkeeper. I didn’t want to screw up the books or more importantly fail to serve our congregation in such an important role.

So, after a google search, I discovered Goodbooks. What an answer to my prayers. Lee Ann and Mary Kate take the time to meet with me and answer all my dumb questions and literally hold my hand teaching me how to use the software. This software is what our small church needed; not super big and intimidating but plenty big enough for our needs. With easy to read reports and user friendly bookkeeping tabs, I am feeling more capable each day.

If you are looking for a bookkeeping software package that is very affordable and easy to understand, then look no further than Goodbooks. Lee Ann Crockett and Mary Kate Lewis will make the learning curve doable. Do yourself a favor and check them out!
