Church Center holds all the public-facing components of Planning Center, such as registration for events, donor information, group pages, and forms. To allow congregants to find your church on Church Center, go to the Church Center tab in Accounts.

Only an Organization Administrator for your church will be able to set this up.

Church Center App

The Church Center app is available for your church members to manage their profile information, any events they've registered for, their donations, and any groups they attend or lead.

Check out the video to see what it looks like for people to use the Church Center app, and then follow the steps below to set it up.


To allow congregants to find your church on the Church Center app, first set up your campus, and then choose the apps you'd like to make available for your congregation.

Set Up Campus Information

From the campus tab, you can add new campuses and enter information about those already listed, and they will show up on the Home tab of the app.

Enable Apps

Check the box to Enable Church Center app, choose the apps you'd like to enable, and ask your church members to download the app for free on Android or iOS.

If your church is not subscribed to one of the apps, click Manage Subscriptions to choose a pricing package that works for you.

Church Center Web

To start using Church Center as a website, enter your personalized Church Center URL.

Your Church Center URL is used by many of our apps, so make it memorable and relative to your church.

Apple Pay

Enabling Apple Pay allows your Church Center users on iOS to give directly within the app instead of being sent to their mobile browser. To allow people to give with Apple Pay, ensure your organization has received approval to use Apple Pay from Apple, and then check the box. 

Apple Pay is always enabled in supported browsers for Registrations.
