What is MPUG?

MPUG (MinistryPlatform User Group) is a 3 day annual community event for churches using MinistryPlatform.  This is an opportunity to network with the MP team and other churches from around the country and world.  This year we will have some very exciting product news and some brand new partners eager to share how they are integrating with us to bring powerful features to your church!  This year we have built in some very intentional community time so you will be able to share and brainstorm with like minded churches.

This year, MPUG will take place Tuesday, May 8th, through Thursday, May 10th, in Irvine, California at Harvest Christian Fellowship

MPUG will begin officially at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 8th, and conclude at 2:00 pm on Thursday, May 10th.

MPUG will be $130.00 per person, billed on your next quarterly invoice. REGISTER NOW!

Schedule

This year we chose to integrate with Sched.org.  This will allow us to keep everything up to date as we draw closer to the event and will allow our speakers to share materials earlier in the process.  After registering you will be added to the MPUG Sched site and will be able to begin choosing the sessions you will attend.  You can preview the schedule here:
