Is there a way to run a membership application of a server?  What I'm trying to achieve here is to give multiple people access to a membership application at the same time.  A couple of people will update and others will just view.

You could run this application as a Remoteapp (for staff on your network for example) or you could run it as a website. Is the application already developed? Where are the users based, in office, all over the place, or both?

The users are based in the office.  It is a 3rd party product.  It is not web-based.

So you want to install the program on the server and then have a short cut on the workstations?

How do you set the permissions as to who can update and who can just view?

Is this a commercial application or something built in house?

Since it is a 3rd party app, it is going to be program specific.  What is the name of the program and the company that wrote it?

I'm surprised that you haven't reviewed their page.
Q. Can I use Working Church on a network, from multiple locations, or computers?

A. Yes, the software can be installed on your local network and allows for multiple users to have their own logins, passwords and security settings for the various applications. There is no additional charge for a "network" version. You can also run Working Church using remote control software which allows you to access your computer from anywhere in the world over the internet.

Unfortunately; there are no specific instructions for how to setup networked/shared acccess on their website so I would look in the help file first.
The most common method; though, is to setup a shared folder for the data files on the "server", map that folder as a drive letter on all of the workstations, then point each computer's copy of the software to the mapped drive as the location for the data files.
If it is not in the help file, I would E-Mail them for how they want it done.
