Why is this course great for Kids Ministry leaders?

When I got started in Kids Ministry, I knew Planning Center was a powerful tool that could save me time scheduling volunteers, organizing events, and following-up with families in my Kids Ministry. But I had no clue where to get started with it.

And so, Planning Center would sit on the shelf, with much of its potential for my Kids Ministry going untapped. Sound familiar?

At the time, there was no easy way to learn Planning Center and half the content had nothing to do with Kids Ministry. You had to read support articles, search YouTube for tutorials, and kind of just try to figure it out on your own... It's exhausting, right?

I knew I wasn't the only one experiencing that, so it got me thinking, "What if there was an easier way to learn Planning Center? What if I created a way for Kids Ministry leaders to cut through the confusion and frustration and help them save hours of time every week with this tool?"

I dove all-in learning Planning Center and the results were huge for my ministry: it ended up saving me hours of time every week.

In addition to launching a consulting company to help church with Planning Center, I reached out to a few Kids Ministry Facebook Groups to see if anyone would be interested in a course. The response was overwhelming:

After reading through hundreds of comments in a couple different Facebook groups, I was convinced.

The roadblock that is holding you back from using Planning Center is this: You need an easy way to learn how to make the most of it.

And that is what Planning Center Made Easy is, it's a step-by-step course made up of bite-sized videos that are easy to follow along with. In this course, I walk you through the basics and then help you make the most of this tool by sharing practical examples and best practices that ministry leaders are finding success with.

Whether you are new to Planning Center or you've been using it for years, this course will help you become confident with this tool and save hours of time every week.

Brandon Maddux - Creator of Planning Center Made Easy

Hi, I'm Brandon Maddux

I was a Kids Pastor for seven years and learned how to use Planning Center to save hours of time every week. In this course, I'll walk you through step-by-step how to make the most of Planning Center for your kids ministry so that you can save time and make a greater impact in the families in your community.

At my former church, I was the resident expert on Planning Center (and they still call me for help sometimes). I have also worked as a consultant training ministry leaders around the country and working one-on-one with churches helping them make the most of this tool. Today, I am serving as missionary to those on the margins in Los Angeles.

In this course, I have taken my practical experience of using Planning Center in my kids ministry and my years of experience training churches across the country in order to help you become confident with it in 10 days or less.
