The available clients can be found at https://mypowerchurch.com

Below is an excerpt from that site regarding the available Linux clients:
There is not a PowerChurch-branded Linux client available, and the clients that do exist work on only a very limited number of Linux versions. These are the supported versions, and this is taken directly from our vendor's website:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6
CentOS 5 and 6
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

All the above versions are 32bit or 64bit.

Any version not explicitly listed above will probably not work. For instance, the Ubuntu version of the client will not install on Ubuntu 13.04, the Red Hat version will not install on Fedora, etc. So if you have a version other than these, you can try to download and install, but we were not successful in getting them to run in our testing.

I just took a look back at the vendor's website and they are actually now advertising newer Linux distro version compatibility than we had before. It looks like we didn't see those updates before. We will test the updated clients and if everything works as expected, we will get the download links and the documentation updated!

You can give this a shot. It's a newer Linux client directly from Graphon, the company that makes the software we use to publish PowerChurch Online

https://www.mypowerchurch.com/Clients/g ... .linux.deb (Debian-based systems like Ubuntu, etc)
https://www.mypowerchurch.com/Clients/g ... .linux.rpm (Red Hat-based systems)

The .deb package seems to work on Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 and 20.04. I have not tested the .rpm package.

You'll need to specify the server when you run it, and that's online.mypowerchurch.com. You'll also have to run PowerChurch from the program window that comes up. You'll see two links - one is "PowerChurch Plus" and the other is "PowerChurchPlus" - either will work.
