Our Story

Where it all began

Elvanto was officially founded in early 2010, but it all started a few years prior when Ben created a rostering system for his local church.

There were a number of databases on the market at the time, but it seemed that many churches had needs that weren’t being met by their current church management system.

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

We've helped new church plants get off the ground, all the way to churches with thousands in attendance.

Our Name

ɛlvɑːntoʊ

(El • vahn • toe)

Why the name?

Elvanto doesn't mean anything, it’s just a name we thought sounded cool


Our Heart

The mission behind Elvanto is to invest finances and resources to bless others, particularly those less fortunate than us.

We believe in living for a cause greater than ourselves. Our heart pours out to...

  • Help new church plants
  • Support orphans and widows around the globe
  • Assist churches build their own grounds
  • Help fund bible colleges and missionaries in developing countries
  • Build orphanages so children can have a home
  • To support missionaries around the world so that they can pursue their calling

We believe this is the call God has given us here at Elvanto. It’s so much bigger than a church database, which is why we give a portion of everything made through sales to assist in these areas.
