So we have some exciting news for everyone today. First, we are very pleased to introduce you to our new Community Support Director, Katie Willard. After getting over 40 applications we were very happy to narrow it down to a person who was a perfect fit for this position.

Katie is originally from Oregon and moved down to Southern California with her husband in October 2007. Her husband is a youth pastor so Katie is busy doing ministry outside of her work here as well. She comes to us with a teaching background but is excited about this new line of work. She really has a heart for helping people learn and has the technological know-how to become a master of all things Planning Center.

Please feel free to shoot her an e-mail and say hi.

Transposr.com has been my little side project over the last month. When talking with churches at the conferences we go to, I find that many of them love our chord chart transposer but might not need a full worship planning tool. So about a 6 months ago I came up with the idea of pulling our chord chart transposer software out of PCO and making this site. It took a while to complete, but I am very happy with how it turned out.

One of the things that I am really excited about is the introduction of an MP3 transposer that I have been working on for quite awhile. This software will take any MP3 you upload into the system and transpose it to any key by changing the pitch but not changing the tempo. There is already downloadable software that does this, but this is the first free online solution I have seen. After a couple weeks in action, making sure that everything works, we will port this functionality into Planning Center so that we can automatically transpose your MP3s for you.

Please check out the screenshots below or check out Transposr.com and let us know what you think at support@ministrycentered.com.

Thanks!
