About Planted Church

What is Planted Church and who runs it?

What is Planted Church?

Planted Church is the first and only Enterprise-grade Relational Network for churches. Churches are all about connecting people. Wherever groups of people need to gather and organise, there is a need for clear and easy administration and reporting. Planted Church isn't the first service to meet this need, but it is the first Enterprise-grade service to do so.

In today's world, churches understand that they have moral and legal obligations to be able to manage all their attendees and groups correctly, as well as offer an expanding range of online services. Planted Church is the platform to do this.

Who runs Planted Church?

Planted Church was founded in 2018 by three professionals with a combined experience of over 30 years in Enterprise software.


“I truly believe the only way we will flourish is by being PLANTED in the House of God. Being involved in Ministry as a volunteer over the years, I have seen people’s lives transformed by being committed to their local Church

The Bible tells us that "those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God." I love this, and for me, it summarises the heart of how we are helping churches flourishing”

Tian Beukes, Managing Director.

“Over the years I've had the privilege to build some incredible world-class solutions in the corporate world, but I always knew that there was something more meaningful to come. With Planted Church, we're able to take some of that power that we used to put in the hands of companies, and put it at the service of the Kingdom.”

Dan Matthews, Operations Director.

“For a very long time I felt that the work I did lacked purpose and did not matter. Planted Church is a chance to change that, it’s a chance to make a difference in the lives of many people through serving my Father.

May the Lord guide us on this journey.”

Daniel van der Merwe, Technical Director.
