Tis’ the season churches are nearing the end of the year and getting set to send giving year end statements.
The native functionality for Church Community Builder (CCB) offers the opportunity to execute and export giving statements for individuals and families.
In fact, we’ve previously shared a few API tutorials as it pertains giving and using the CCB API:
Today’s tutorial will not detail native functionality, yet will focus on how to retrieve giving transaction information for families.
Whether your church plans on creating it’s on giving statement tool or application, or you simply seek to understand the last date or amount of a given family id, this tutorial will help you do that and more.
Now let’s get started! Continue reading How to Retrieve Giving Transactions Per Family
Over the last few weeks, there’s been a bit of excitement in the world of Church Community Builder, also affectionately known as CCB.
I use “excitement” loosely as many churches using CCB’s API were informed about CCB implementing a new per-minute rate limiting policy in addition to its per-day allotment of 10,000 calls per day — which they hope to retire sooner rather than later, yet it’ll remain in place for now.
As of August 20th, this new rate limiting strategy aims to restrict how many times per minute an API user can access an individual API Service — noted in New API Rate Limiting documentation.
So, what does this truly mean to you, and more importantly, how does this new strategy impact developed applications and environments using CCB’s API? 🤔 Continue reading Accessing CCB’s API Rate Limit Headers
Welcome to another CCB Tutorial.
Picking up from where we left off last, it was brought to my attention that last week’s tutorial may have another option as it pertains to creating a simplified login page using the CCB API.
Last week’s tutorial focused on validating a user’s credentials simply using the Individual Profile from Login and Password CCB API service.
Again, last week’s tutorial and today’s tutorial are not a secure or fool-proof login system, and should not be depicted or interpreted as such.
In addition to using the Individual Profile from Login and Password CCB API service, I would like to introduce you to another CCB API service that can be interchanged as well: Community Login. Continue reading Simplified Login Page Using CCB API – Part II
Welcome back! Today’s tutorial will focus on creating a simple and functioning login page that validates a user’s credentials.
I use the term validate instead of authenticate because this is truly not a secure or fool-proof login system using CCB’s API.
The API service we’ll use, Individual Profile from Login and Password, simply states that using this service returns an individual profile for the login and password provided.
However, with a bit of elbow grease, we’re going to use this service to create a simple login page.

In today’s tutorial, I’m sharing with you how to access and display group profiles by id.
Not to be confused with the group_profiles API service — which allows you to pass in a given date and have all groups created or modified since that date returned to you, today’s tutorial will access group_profiles_from_id API service.
So instead of focusing on returning ALL group profiles, we’ll focus on accessing and displaying a specific group by its group id (as shown below).
That stated, let’s get started with today’s tutorial. Continue reading Accessing and Displaying Group Profiles By ID
