Joining MinistryWorks has been such a blessing for us. We’ve experienced substantial savings since becoming a MinistryWorks customer — they cut our payroll expenses in half. The staff is so easy to work with, the reporting is very easy, and overall the services they provide are invaluable to our non-profit. We are extremely pleased with everything about MinistryWorks, and I highly recommend their services.

With the tax laws changing, it’s nice to have someone else filing our taxes. I’ve come to find out that some of the [tax-related] things that I was taught by previous pastors were wrong. Even though we’re small, MinistryWorks is still able to help us. You don’t have to be a mega-church anymore to be well taken care of.

Our church received a notice from the IRS. I’m a CPA, but payroll taxes aren’t my specialty. I forwarded the notice to MinistryWorks to see if they could help. Within a couple of hours, I received a reply that said, ‘We’ll take care of it!’ That kind of service is normal with MinistryWorks, and we’re paying less than we had been paying our previous payroll provider. I can’t recommend MinistryWorks enough!

The transition from our previous payroll provider to MinistryWorks during our fiscal year has saved us considerable financial resources. With MinistryWorks we’re able to speak directly to a representative that is familiar with the details of our organization.

MinistryWorks was our ‘saving grace’ following a really bad situation with a previous payroll company. They were extremely helpful during the transition process, and there was never a question they didn’t answer for us. Our fee for payroll processing was cut in half compared to what we were paying previously.

After meeting with several payroll companies we chose MinistryWorks for their understanding of church needs, their excitement about the product, and their cost. They have been wonderful in walking with us through the steps needed to bring our goal of direct deposit to our employees.

What happens if I submit my payroll electronically with a mistake?

When a mistake is discovered on a payroll that was submitted electronically, the MinistryWorks staff will work with your ministry to correct the mistake as efficiently as possible. Each mistake is separately evaluated and the best solution is chosen to satisfy the ministry and the employee.

How are special payroll deductions handled?

Special payroll deductions such as health insurance premiums, membership dues, charitable contributions, etc. are calculated and withheld from the employee’s payroll during each pay period. These deductions are clearly reflected on your ministry’s payroll check register so you can pay your ministry’s deduction liabilities directly to the appropriate vendor.

How do I handle holiday payroll and back up processing?

When your ministry becomes a client of MinistryWorks, a payroll processing calendar is established for you based upon your pay dates. At that time, you will indicate whether your ministry desires to move your pay day back or forward when the pay day falls on a holiday. The calendar is adjusted based upon this decision.

How do we retrieve our payroll reports?

There are a couple of options for receiving payroll reports from MinistryWorks. Electronic reports are available for download from the website within moments after your payroll processing is complete. After each payroll is processed, you will receive an email alert that the reports are available for download. The report files are in PDF format and… Read more »
