People work best when they work together. So, New Ground alliance Church has teamed up with the "Planning Center".
Planning Center uses "Apps" that we will be integrating into use over time. They have designed each App to be task focused so, each leader can learn less and accomplish more.

- Each person has a page where you can store contact data, personal information, membership details, and more. Add pictures and social profiles or import them automatically using email addresses.
- Quickly see other people in the same household from any person's page. Edit Households, add people to multiple households, or update home phone numbers and addresses for the entire household at once.
