MinistryPlatform User Group

MinistryPlatform is more than just a database, it’s a vehicle to community!

That’s why we spend the entire year looking forward to and preparing for MPUG (MinistryPlatform User Group), our annual 3-day community event for churches using MP.

The All New Virtual MPUG 2021!

WOW! MPUG 2021 was about as awesome as a virtual event could get!! It was such a delight to see you interacting on chat, winning giveaways, and visiting sessions and expo booths. Thank you so much for joining us and for being part of the MP Community. We are blessed.

All presentations and sessions were recorded, scroll further for videos and resources.

Annnddddd...!! Be sure to save the date for:

MPUG 2022

MPUG Class Photo – It's Tradition!

We can't have a User Group without getting a Class Photo!

So if you were at MPUG 2021, here's what you do:

  1. Take a selfie – on your laptop or favorite device.
  2. Go to and upload it.

And that's it!

We'll take care of the rest.
