This article will show you how to set your church address and add any additional campuses, which can each have their own address and time zone.
You must be an Organization Administrator to access this page. If you are not an Organization Administrator, you'll see a list of the people who are when you go to the Organization Page.
If your church has more than one location or campus, you might wonder if each campus should have its own Planning Center account or if all the campuses should share a single account.
In most cases, using one account for all of your campuses is the best approach. If your campuses all share a single bookkeeper or a central bank account, then having a single Planning Center account is probably the right course of action for you.
However, if each of your campuses manages its own bookkeeping and has a separate bank account, it is likely a better choice to have a separate Planning Center account for each location.
Add a Church Campus
To add a church campus, go to the Church Campuses tab on the Organization page.
Click Add a Church Campus if you are adding your first campus or Add Another Church Campus if you've already have at least one campus.
Planning Center does not limit the campuses you can have, but if you're adding a campus for the Check-ins Mobile Pass, keep in mind that each Apple Pass can only hold up to 10 addresses.
The campus information that you add will be used by other Planning Center products to identify the campus, as well as providing information for members logging in with the Church Center app.
If you have more than one campus, you can use a name for each campus that identifies the campus location.
- If you don't name your campus, it will be named after the city. The campus name will be shown when assigning campuses to Folders in Services.
- Add a description that is specific to the campus. This description field can include basic formatting, including hyper-linked, bold, or italic text, as well as bulleted or numbered lists.
- Check if you want the campus information to be available in the Church Center app.
Add your church logo or another image that represents the campus.
Click Choose File to browse for an image on your computer.
Images must be in PNG, JPG, or GIF format. Recommended images size is 1920 x 1080.
Add the campus address and time zone.
The time zone is used for Calendar feeds in Services.
If the geolocation service doesn't seem to be working correctly, you can choose Use coordinates from the Geolocation drop down, and enter the coordinates for your church location manually. You can find your latitude and longitude coordinates on Google Maps.
Any contact information that you add will be used to enable Church Center users to call, email, or access the church web site from the app.
A valid website URL's must begin with "https://" (secure sites) or "http://" (non-secured sites).
For each service time, click Add, and add the service start time. You can also add an additional note to describe the service time.
Edit or Delete a Campus
Once you've added a campus, you can edit any information that has changed by clicking the pencil to the right of the campus.
After making all of your changes, click Save.
Campus Info in Church Center App
If you've chosen to display campus information in the Church Center app, the church and campus name, campus address, and church website display when someone selects your church in the app.
After the person logs in, they will see the campus name, description, and service times on the Home tab, along with icons that members can use to call or email the church or get directions
See the Church Center article for more information on enabling the Church Center app for your congregation.
Campuses in Other Planning Center Products
Campuses can be used to help organize your church information in each of the Planning Center products. However, the campuses will only show up if an additional campus is added. If the church only has one campus, campus information won't show up in Planning Center.
The table below describes how campuses are used in different Planning Center products.
