Our Partners Say It Best SWIPE FOR MORE

“Just since we’ve partnered with Parable, our giving has gone up. We’ve been able to really track how healthy we are as a church. I could not imagine doing multi-site church and keeping up with the numbers and the stories without our partnership with Parable.”

Rich Butler

Lead Pastor, Hope Church, Greenville, SC

“[Parable] did a great job working with us as we grew. I would strongly encourage you, if you’re looking for an accounting team, to give Parable a call and just have a discussion with them. They’re great people, and they’ll treat you well.”

Jake Johnson

Church Planter, Manna Church, Stafford, VA

“[Parable] brought in the best systems. They innovated, they helped us to innovate, and now, we can retrieve information in real time. We can make information-based decisions and really tell our financial story […] They invest in leaders like me, and they bring world-class services to leaders like me. I am so, so happy with our partnership with Parable.”

Jonathan Wiggins

Lead Pastor, Rez.Curch, Loveland, CO

“Parable has been the answer to every one of our financial problems. I feel like I can send off that part of my brain and let them take care of that because I have so much else to do in this season. I couldn’t be more happy than we are with Parable.”

Tom Watson

Lead Pastor, Five Stones Church, Chattanooga, TN

“Hands down, Parable has helped us in so many ways, and we’re reaping the benefits in terms of time, energy, and focus. Greg and the whole team have been such a pleasure.”

Greg Scherer

Board Vice President and CFO, Dwelling Place Anaheim, CA

Parable has an expertise that unless I want to spend hundreds of hours developing, I don’t have. And that’s where I don’t need to put my efforts. […] Parable serves as that outside resource that literally in my mind is iron sharpening iron.

Bob Miller

Executive Pastor of Operations, Florence Baptist Church, Florence, SC

“Parable is a blessing to our church. They feel like a part of our team. We didn’t get into ministry to balance books, write checks or pay bills, but we know those things have to be done. They take so much off our shoulders. Parable catches the things we are missing, the details we may miss that could be a big problem.”

Edwin Jones

Lead Pastor, The Bridge Church, Hampton, VA

Looking for Church Accounting?

This is our SEO section. Don’t worry about it.

This is just our site’s SEO section, created specifically for Google and our SEO team, and making it easier to connect with the best people on the planet (that’s you!). 


But, if you’re curious, feel free to read on…

At Parable, we’re all about making life easier for churches and church staff so you can continue to do all that God’s called you to do. That includes church accounting and church accounting services, bookkeeping for churches (also known as church bookkeeping), and payroll for churches, payroll for clergy, as well as payroll services for churches (what’s the best way to handle a church’s salary, anyway? We’ve got people who know that stuff, too.). For example, are ministers subject to FICA? The answer’s no, BTW.


We also handle payroll taxes for churches, because church payroll taxes are a big deal … but they’re also kind of complicated, you know? We know you know. That’s why we do what we do. 


While we do love to focus on accounting for church services, we also know how to help you use the right church accounting software! That’s right, church accounting software for small churches and church accounting software for big churches, too. We work with church planters, growing churches, and established churches to figure out which software for church accounting makes the most sense. So if you ask us, “What’s the best church accounting software,” our bookkeepers and accountants combine QuickBooks with services like Divvy and Bill.com. Plus, we’ve got all the details on payroll software for churches too … ever heard of Gusto


Anyway, you probably get the point by now. We love churches, church staff, and church missions, and we want to help make everything your church is doing as effective as possible. That’s why we’re here to offer church accounting services, church payroll services, and church accounting software services that help tell your church’s story well so that every dollar stays on mission. 


Thanks for taking a trip down SEO lane with us!
