07/03/2018 - PowerChurch Online Service Disruption


After being resolved a few hours ago, there appear to be some residual problems bubbling up and service is very slow at the moment.  As of 6pm on July 3, connectivity is up and everything is available as expected.  We will continue to monitor the situation as the data center continues work on their hardware.

The data center where the PowerChurch Online service is hosted is having intermittent connectivity problems. They are aware of the issue and are working to get it resolved. Our servers are all up and running without a problem, so we can only wait for the connectivity issues to be resolved. We appreciate your patience.
