Our Story!


We at Planning appreciate your interest! I am Tom Metz, the founder of this Saas (Software as a Service). The service we provide today was originally born out of necessity at the church my family and I helped plant many years ago.

I began leading the multimedia team at that church 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 communicate.

In 2003, I felt led to develop a prototype of a "Planning" tool, and introduced it to our church. Six months later, a "public" version was launched as www.Planning. Since then, the site has evolved thanks to feedback from churches all over the world, and a team of designers, developers, and support personnel that are considerably more talented than the founder. :)


Worship Sense, Inc. (our official company name) is headquartered in Fort Mill, South Carolina, which is a stones-throw distance from Charlotte.

We hope your church finds Planning a useful tool in planning, organizing, and communicating in your ministry. Our goal for Planning 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.
