What is Planning Center Made Easy?

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.

That's when I launched a consulting company to help churches move their data to Planning Center... but I was reminded again that the biggest roadblock to using Planning Center is training. You need an easy way to learn how to make use of this powerful tool.

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.
