Church Planting Software & Project Management
Church planting is hard. There’s a lot to do. That’s why we created PlanterPlan.
PlanterPlan is an online church planting software app designed to help you do the right things at the right time to ensure everything you do contributes to unleashing God’s blessing on your church plant.
PlanterPlan is FREE for you to use and comes with a complete list of tasks in priority order based on the dates you set for starting and launching your new church. I just upgraded my PlanterPlan account...happy to contribute to P4P! Thanks! #churchplanting Click To Tweet We give you all the tasks you need from start to finish and offer an upgrade price of just $149 to get access to all of our content. We understand you may not be ready to pay. That’s okay. Create an account for free and work through your Phase 1 tasks before deciding to upgrade. It’s a great way to try before you buy! Then, when you are ready, you can upgrade to add the remaining phases, milestones and tasks to your project to take you through launch. Church planting software has never been easier!
What really makes PlanterPlan shine is our recently upgraded and ever growing library of tasks that most church planters will need to do to start a new church. These tasks answer the question: What should I be doing today if I want to reach lost people and launch a healthy church? Start with a basic church planting or multi-site project and then customize it with additional tasks for your specific context. Each task has a detailed description to help you actually get things done. Many come with training videos, worksheets, templates, and clear step-by-step instructions. You’ll never be left wondering what you can do to launch a healthy church. Our library is appropriate for both starting a new church, and starting a new campus or location for an existing church. Your project can focus on either option.
While PlanterPlan comes with FREE templates, we also offer premium content for $149*. Phase 1 of the free templates include premium content to help you affirm your calling to plant, develop a training plan, start a prayer team, and more. When you are ready you can upgrade to get all of the premium content and resources for your project all the way through launch.
Since PlanterPlan is a complete rewrite of our previous software, Converge, we’re still making improvements on a daily basis. We really believe PlanterPlan is a huge step forward in online project management for church planters. Nothing is like it. The software itself is only half the magic. The content brings the tool to life.
PlanterPlan groups tasks by Phases, Milestones, Tasks and Subtasks. There are a lot of steps, so we try to put things in bite-size pieces. Here’s where PlanterPlan really shines. You are in control of when tasks need to get done and who does them.
Phases and Milestones
Phases and Milestones bring clarity of purpose. By grouping similar tasks together you’ll gain efficiency of effort and more importantly, answer the question, “Why?” There are about 40 milestones in a typical church plant project. These are grouped into Phases. Completing each milestone is a significant task that brings you closer to launch.
There are roughly 400 tasks in our standard project plan help you do the right things at the right times. You’ll apply each task to your specific planting context to launch the church God called you to plant.
Here’s a secret: build a launch team and assign tasks to them.
You should not even consider planting a church by yourself. PlanterPlan allows you to invite individuals to your launch team and gives you control over delegating tasks so you can divide and conquer.
If Moses needed help (Exodus 18), there’s a good chance you need help as well. Learn to delegate while keeping your project on track.
With PlanterPlan you never lose track of where you are because we provide graphs and reporting tools all along the way. Here’s an example of the home page for a church planter that’s launching in about six months:
We help you stay focused on what tasks are due based on due dates calculated by the system from years of church planting experience. Of course you can change the calculate due dates, but most of us like to know when we’ve let a task slip behind so we know what to focus on first!
The charts above are part of our “Quick Look” report. It’s on the main page as well as the Reports page. Other reports include a boilerplate Monthly Status Report and a Timeline Graph that gives you a complete overview of your project.
* Here’s the fine print: Upgrade for $149
Your upgrade purchase unlocks all project phases for 18 months. Extensions are available if needed, but most planters complete their projects within 18 months. We greatly appreciate your willingness to upgrade as it helps us keep the content up-to-date and cover administrative costs for hosting the site.
