Our Inspiration: Serving God

We at worshipplanning.com appreciate your interest! I am Tom Metz, founder of worshipplanning.com. The service we provide today was originally born out of necessity at the church my family and I belonged to for several years. The church was Warehouse 242, which actively seeks to connect Charlotte, NC, post-moderns with Christ, each other, and the world. I began leading the multimedia team at W242 in the summer of 2002, and soon discovered how stressful Sunday mornings could be due to communication disconnects between the bands, the teaching team, the artists, and the tech crew. I knew there must be an easier way to plan and execute worship services.

In 2003, I felt led to develop a prototype of worshipplanning.com, and introduced it to our church. Six months later, it was accessible by all as www.worshipplanning.com. Since then, the site has evolved through feedback from churches using it all over the world.

worshipplanning.com allows everyone to “get on the same page” well before Sunday morning by providing a central planning tool and communications hub. We frequently hear from our members how worshipplanning.com has made their lives easier. Not only does that give us tremendous satisfaction, but it also motivates us to continue improving and upgrading so more churches can benefit.

We hope your church finds worshipplanning.com a useful tool in planning, organizing, and communicating in your worship ministry. Our goal for worshipplanning.com is to assist you in expanding God’s kingdom. It is truly an honor and privilege for our team to serve you and Jesus Christ in this capacity.

Oh, and thanks to our friends at Sliced Tomato Productions for their great work creating the “Blue Head” video above.
