My Own Church

Feel like you need a PHD to get the answers
you want from your database?

Your parish records hold the answer to almost any question about your church community. Parish IQ (Intelligent Query) provides the simplest way to get those answers—in plain English and in the format you want—from your ParishSOFT applications.
Are you spending hours searching for answers to questions like -

"Of our families with children in Religious Ed, which adults are not volunteering in parish ministries?"

"What is the average age of the registered adults in our parish; and what are my age demographics by ranges of 26-45, 46-65, and 66 and older?"

"How many families registered within the last 2 years; and how many registered between 3-5 years ago?"

"Which families made an offertory pledge last year but not this year?"

"Which of our older teens ages 15-19 have been baptized but not confirmed?"
Parish IQ is designed with a simple, intuitive interface that is easy to use. Just select from the list of fields that you use every day in your ParishSOFT applications to maintain your family, member, stewardship, sacrament, religious education and contributions records. Add powerful sorting options, conditions, and aggregate functions to build simple or highly complex queries. Parish IQ gives everyone the power to be a creative data analyst, and no advanced database application skills or expensive consultants are required.

Quick, easy answers to the questions that are important to your staff have many benefits for your parish:

"I am so thrilled to be using Parish IQ! There are so many parameters to choose from and updating the report layout was a breeze. Some of the reports that I prepare used to take hours, with Parish IQ I just click, choose, view and print. I have been blown away with how easy it is to use!"
