An Important Note About PrintersT

The Church Programs will function with Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP operating systems, but they run in DOS Mode.  

Printing from within these programs requires a printer that will print in DOS Mode or has installed software that will convert the data to print properly.

These programs WILL NOT function with the new VISTA operating system.   

The following software is made available as a ministry of John and Lee Ware of First Baptist Church, Grandview, MO. John spent years in developing and refining the programs, and over 2000 churches worldwide have downloaded this software.

The three programs in the set contain over 600 individual sub-routines totaling more than 100,000 lines of code. They are written in CLIPPER53 language and compiled with the CLIPPER53 compiler. The programs have been constructed over more than ten years with many Southern Baptist churches providing input to the design. All copyrights are reserved by John and Lee Ware.

All three applications are DOS based and come in self-extracting files. Simply download the file(s) to whatever directory you choose. After extracting the files, run the batch file (.bat extension) that installs the program. Click here for more detailed instructions on how to install the software. Documentation is built into each package and may be printed after the program is installed.
