Knoxville-headquartered Ministry Brands, the leading software and services company for faith-based and purpose-driven organizations, has announced it is launching a new software research and development centre in Galway, Ireland, creating 50 new technology jobs.

The facility in Ireland will focus on product innovation that will help Ministry Brands’ customers expand their impact on the communities they serve globally. The company will be hiring platform developers, data warehousing specialists, and native mobile and artificial intelligence developers to staff the Galway R&D Centre.

Ministry Brands, which has grown to 700 employees, provides community and organizational leaders with a variety of services including integrated solutions for member and donor management, digital giving, websites, communications, media, event planning, and employee and volunteer background screenings.

“Our investors and leadership team are committed to elevating the standard for technology and service in our industry,” said Pat O’Donnell, Chief Executive Officer. “We are incredibly excited to open this new R&D Centre in Galway. The talent that is here, along with the support of the Irish government and local community leaders has been incredible and I’m confident that this will be a fantastic, long-term partnership.”

Founded in 2012 by Ross Croley of Greater Sum Ventures, Ministry Brands has evolved from a point solution provider of church websites and digital donations to an end-to-end ecosystem of leading integrated solutions serving faith-based organizations.
