Our church wanted to use Planning Center, but we had no clue where to get started. And because of this Planning Center would sit on the shelf for longer... it's potential for my ministry would go untapped. Sound familiar?
At the time, there was no easy way to learn Planning Center. You had to read support articles, search endlessly for tutorials, and kind of just try to figure it out... and hope for the best. It's exhausting, right?
That got me thinking, "What if there was an easier way to learn Planning Center? What I created a way for ministry leaders to cut through the confusion and frustration and make the most of 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.

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).

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.
