The My Presbyterian Story

This project carries the blessing and support of the United Presbyterian Church of Southern Africa. We are grateful that God called together a group of people who wish to serve churches with tools that encourage effective ministry in the name of Christ. This would be for the benefit of the Body of Christ, who in turn would serve the world that God loves and to whom God sends us. God’s call on the MyChurchIT is to offer an effective and efficient way to connect the Body of Christ for God’s ministry and mission. MyChurchIT has a long relationship of serving God together with Fresh Bread Ministries. Fresh Bread Ministries exists is to assist Churches to share the good news and mission of Jesus with innovation, and Rev Christopher Harrison is the active Director.

With the permission of the UPCSA’s Communication Committee, we have worked with over 20 Presbyterian Churches to create, refine and develop the System into what we have today. We are grateful for the teams of people that gave us feedback and constructive comment. 

In 2019 Christopher met with the UPCSA’s Communication Team and their acceptance of the System means we can offer this membership management, communication and missional tool to all Presbyterian congregations. Do contact Christopher at 

Chris@mychrchit.org for more information.
