August 1976 was the founding date for Shelby Systems ministry software. Our 40 year anniversary is coming very soon and to celebrate we’ll be talking with some of the founding members of the company, learn about its amazing history and dream as we look into the future. Mary Ann Hamilton talks with us about meeting her late husband (Shelby’s founder) and how he got the idea for a church software company in the mid 1970’s. Then Frank Canady (Shelby’s first employee and President from 2000 – 2015) joins us with the story of what Shelby did to pay the bills in those first few years. He then explains how Shelby was able to continue and thrive after Ernie Hamilton’s passing. Finally, Brad Hill (COO Ministry Brands) discusses the bright future he sees for Shelby Systems. Make sure you watch the end of the video to experience a sneak peek of the 40 year celebration video that will premiere at ISC 2016 in Orlando, FL.
