Connecting to our community all year long

Throughout the year, we are connecting to our awesome community through webinars, regional trainings, coaching, meeting up at other conferences, or just stopping in if we happen to be in town (ok those last few were in the pre-COVID days).

We love our community and when we can get together with them, even if it's virtually, ... all the better!

And we are DELIGHTED that our very own MP Community member, Glenn Wood from Seacoast (aka Pastor Excel), will be presenting!

You will walk away with a detailed handout, practical application, and learn new functions and tricks to amaze your boss and fellow staff! We'll have a Q&A session at the end where you can ask questions and “Stump The Excel Guy.”


Excel: Advanced Functions

This session is designed to teach MS Excel techniques on an Intermediate to Advanced skill level.

MinistrySmart Academy and MinistryPlatform are at it again, delivering another webinar open to all ACST Products. Excel is a tool you can use to supplement any other software or systems you use.

Give a warm round of applause as we welcome back our very own MP Community member, Glenn Wood from Seacoast (aka Pastor Excel), to the stage.

He'll cover the new XLOOKUP and other functions, Absolute and Relative cell references, working with dates, and show the power of Pivot Tables to better analyze your data. The session has a downloadable handout, work file available for review, and we will have time for a Q&A session for you to ask any Excel questions or challenges.


(OH! And be sure to check out MPUG!)

With several hundred in attendance, the MinistryPlatform User Group is our biggest event of the year and it's open to everyone. The entire MP Community – customers, partners, and integrators – get together to talk "MP." This three day gathering is chock full of sessions and training, customer wins, awards, and exciting announcements about what our developers have been doing behind the scenes. And food. Lots and lots of food!

It's a great time to see old friends and make new ones and collaborate with them all. Even if you're just kicking the tires, we welcome you with open arms – come and get to know our customers and hear about their MinistryPlatform experience directly from them. We'd love to see you there!
