Church Planting Software & Project Management

Church planting is hard. There’s a lot to do. You want to spend time leading and serving people, but those pesky admin details keep screaming for attention.

That’s why we created PlanterPlan.

PlanterPlan is an online tool to help you start a new church or multisite campus. It helps you keep track of all the details so you do the right things at the right time, and in the right order.

PlanterPlan is free for everyone! Our templates include everything you need to keep track of the details: the checklist of tasks, the built-in date engine for assigning due dates, team collaboration, delegation tools, tracking, and more.

It’s browser-based and responsive, so it doesn’t matter what size screen you’re using or which operating system you prefer. It just plain works!

Why You Need PlanterPlan

phoneWhat started as a church planting checklist has gotten way smarter. With PlanterPlan, you’ll know what to work on first and what to save for later. You’ll know exactly how to do things you’ve never done before using each task’s step-by-step instructions. And that makes it easy to delegate tasks to your team members – the training is built right in!

PlanterPlan is not a cookie-cutter. It’s built on principles, asking you the right questions to tease out what God has put on your heart. And it’s updated every year based on feedback from real planters in the trenches.
What you end up with is more time with people and a healthier church with better systems. A church that has disciple-making and church planting baked in to the DNA.

Different Church Planting Models

We know that not everyone approaches planting churches in the same way. PlanterPlan already has templates for the following models:

  • Launch Large
  • Multi-Site
  • Bi-Vocational
