Online Church Solutions is a website builder (CMS) and church management software (ChMS) for churches, ministries, missionaries and other non-profits. Offering a powerful website builder with the online tools a ministry needs, it’s expandable as your ministry grows. Our platforms (CMS, Blogging, Podcasting, ChMS) are proprietary—we built it, so we know it—meaning that we can offer you knowledgeable customer support with a good response time. Because it's a service of our full-time web development business, Flashlight Media, LLC, this husband/wife team makes sure our system is secure and updated. We are continually refining our platforms to better serve our ministry and non-profit customers. Launched in 2012, Online Church Solutions serves over 400 churches and ministries across the US and over 17 additional countries.
How Did We Get Here?
After serving as full-time missionaries to Ireland for almost five years, we returned to life in the States and had an idea: help churches, ministries and non-profits with a truly easy-to-update website, plus a robust church management system, all for a ministry-minded price. We began developing this service through our already-existing full stack web development business, Flashlight Media, LLC. Our idea became the service Online Church Solutions in 2012 which includes our original church podcasting service, Podcast Your Sermons, started in 2005.
