Allen Ratta Partners with Elexio Church Software

Share Article

Integrated church software company Elexio and Allen Ratta, founder of ConnectionPower, have joined together to continue Elexio’s mission of creating the next generation of church management software.

Joining forces brings tremendous benefit to churches who want to grow deep and wide and have tools to support that effort

Allen Ratta joined the Elexio staff effective April 16, bringing years of ministry and software experience to his new role. After serving as a lead pastor and national church growth speaker for 20 years, he founded ConnectionPower in 2001. Ratta served as CEO and led ConnectionPower to become an industry leader in church management software until he sold the company in 2011.

Following the sale of ConnectionPower, he pursued his passion to help churches grow, founding and authoring Making Spiritual Progress (published by InterVarsity Press, January 2014). Ratta saw a pressing need for a technology platform that would help churches experience both numerical and spiritual growth. He recognized Elexio’s solutions and corporate culture as an ideal, cutting-edge technology platform to support his approach. Allen brings his years of experience to the mission of embedding key processes for church health and growth into church software.

“I could not be more excited to be a part of the Elexio team,” says Ratta. “Elexio is one of the best-kept secrets in web-based church software with a mature code base that has been steadily growing since 2002. We are doing things at Elexio that I dreamed of as the CEO of ConnectionPower.”

Ratta will provide invaluable product direction, host webinars for church senior leadership, and assist churches with the transition process to Elexio’s solutions. He will also continue his work with the church as an independent consultant, author, and speaker.

“Working with Allen is a real joy and I greatly appreciate our alignment on mission, vision, and core values. However, the real winner is the church,” says Elexio CEO Jeff Hostetter. “Joining forces brings tremendous benefit to churches who want to grow deep and wide and have tools to support that effort.”
