LPi, a leader in print and online communications primarily serving the Catholic Church market, has sold its wholly owned business units, WeShare and WeGather, to Ministry Brands, a provider of software, services, and information platforms for churches and ministries.
WeShare is a leading online giving and events management platform for parishes, faith-based institutions, and secular nonprofits. WeShare offers innovative collection, management, and tracking solutions that enhance giving activity for parishioners, donors, and members.
WeGather is a fully integrated SaaS-based church management system with a powerful online social community that enables engagement with staff, parishioners, and visitors in real time.
"GLC came highly recommended from one of their past clients and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as well. They were true partners. Throughout our sale process I felt we were in this together, working for the same goal, and doing whatever it takes, whenever needed to get the job done. We were extremely pleased with the outcome of the sale, their process drove value, and the work they did was invaluable in delivering the end result." - Joe Luedtke, CEO, Liturgical Publications, Inc.
Through the acquisition, WeShare and WeGather add two offerings to the Ministry Brands portfolio of software solutions for churches and faith-based organizations. Ministry Brands is a portfolio company of Insight Partners, Greater Sum Ventures, and Genstar Capital.
