About Us

Our Story

It all started in 2005 when founder Ben Sinclair worked to create a volunteer scheduling tool in his local church...

After a few years, Ben could see there were a number of church management solutions on the market, but they weren't fulfilling the needs of many churches. He realized that there was a need for good church software which is why, in June 2010, Ben founded Elvanto.

From small beginnings, the team has continued to grow and expand. Now, thousands of churches around the world rely on Elvanto for their church management software needs.

Our Core Values


We will over deliver when we can, providing our customers with more than their money’s worth.

We believe in giving back to churches and we will work hard to provide free resources, advice, and support to your team. We strive to be as helpful as possible.


We not only listen to our customers but we innovate and come up with fresh ideas. We are a dynamic team and strive to continue to improve our software to further help our customers.


We’re dedicated to creating and maintaining a friendly, relaxed work environment. We will celebrate one another and our achievements.

If we’re not having fun, we’re doing something wrong.


We will take responsibility for our mistakes and will do what we can to rectify them. We will represent ourselves and our intentions honestly to our team mates and to our customers.

Our goal is to be as open and honest as possible, without causing any harm. We will be ourselves, even if that means being occasionally silly and a little less than perfect.


We will avoid the assumption that existing norms are the right path. We choose to create our own products and build our company in a way that challenges stereotypes and pre-existing best practices.

We try to be the exception to the rule. We choose to create a better way.

Our Core Values

We believe that we are called to so much more which is why through Elvanto we are able to...
