Services for New National Church Planting Office Project

BBFI's New National Church Planting Office (NCPO) will Utilize ACS Technologies
Software Services to Start 100 New Churches This Year

FLORENCE, SC, June 6, 2005—ACS Technologies today announces that Baptist Bible
Fellowship International (BBFI) has chosen ACS Church Planter Management System
(CPMS) to help run its new National Church Planting Office (NCPO). This new
office has been established by BBFI to oversee the efforts to develop and equip
churches and church plants for the ministry of starting new churches throughout
the world. The organization's goal is to enlist, train, equip, and qualify 100
church plants during 2005 with a great commission vision, and ACS CPMS software
will help support them achieve this goal. This software will aid the NCPO in
developing a financial office that will provide financial consulting services,
provide materials and resources that will produce a strong stewardship
foundation for every local church.

''When we first heard that ACS Technologies was providing specialized software
for the management of church planting, we were very interested to find out how
these tools could help BBFI reach its goals,'' comments Bill Monroe, president
of BBFI and pastor of Florence Baptist Temple in Florence, South Carolina. ''My
church has benefited greatly from utilizing ACS for nearly 20 years, and I am
excited about using the company's new church planting software for my current
work with BBFI.''

The first BBFI church planter training meeting was held at Florence Baptist
Temple at the end of January and included 31 church planters and instructors
from around the country. The meeting included training on ACS CPMS in order to
prepare planters for their jobs.

''We are very excited about all the features that CPMS will offer our church
plants. >From managing visitor and membership information, to keeping track of
contributions, outreach ministry tracking and private counseling notes, the ACS
CPMS package will provide us with exactly the tools we'll need,'' states Wayne
Guinn, Director of Finance for the National Church Planting Office.

The Church Planter Management System is a unique system specifically designed
to help new church plants and planters manage all of the information generated
in the course of running a church. From tracking a person's spiritual
giftedness, prayer concerns, reminders of birthday, anniversary, and other
special days, CPMS stores it all and keeps your most relevant information
within reach. Even more, the software provides a comprehensive means of
monitoring an individual's spiritual development from a new believer to an
active, serving member.

''This endeavor is a terrific example of the partnership we make with
denominational offices or affiliated groups like BBFI. We are committed to
serving the full spectrum of churches, from new plants to mega-churches, and to
providing software and services to help fulfill their goals.'' Hal Campbell
comments, president and CEO of ACS Technologies. ''No other company offers
churches and faith-based offices as full a suite of product and service
solutions as ACS Technologies, all backed by a 27-year track record of success.''

The BBFI implementation includes customized resources for church plants,
specially branded packaging, and targeted training opportunities. ''It means a
lot that our initiative gets such personal attention, while at the same time we
get the benefits that come from working with an industry leader like ACS
Technologies,'' notes Pastor Wayne Guinn, Director of Finance for the BBFI
National Church Planting Office.
