Add Campus Information

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.

Multiple Campuses or Multiple Accounts?

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 apps to identify the campus, as well as providing information for members logging in with the Church Center app.

Campus Name and Description

If you have more than one campus, you can use a name for each campus that identifies the campus location.

Campus name
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Check if you want the campus information to be available in the Church Center app.

Location

When Geolocation is set to Use address, the address is used to determine location to for Mobile Passes to Check-Ins users and for users of the Church Center app to find churches near their location.

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.

Contact Information

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.
