Come for the Videos, Stay for the Community.

Don't learn on your own. Actively get help from experts and ministry leaders.

Most training's out there are just videos that you watch on your own time. You can watch our videos on-demand, but you can also learn faster and better through our active community of like-minded ministry leaders.

Take this situation for example: Imagine you just watched our videos on creating powerful lists. In our community, you can share your lists and get feedback, help and insights from other ministry leaders.

This is so much better than just watching a video and forgetting what it said minutes later.

My name is Brandon Maddux. I'm a ministry nerd who has spent years learning everything I can about Planning Center. In fact, it ended up saving me hours of time every week, freeing me up to make a greater impact in my community.
