Great for Organizing and Finding Sermons
By , for WP 3.8.2

This plugin is great for organizing and finding sermons. It really matches well with the series our church does and helps us keep organized. We have two campuses and use Multisite and it works well in that environment too.

The back-end is 100% WordPress native functionality, works great, and is familiar to our pastors which is a nice bonus. I think the front-end looks best of course on the premium themes offered on the WPforChurch.com site, but I found the templates provided easy to copy into our theme and modify for our needs. If nobody in your church is comfortable with that, there are plenty of [shortcodes] available to put in any page or post.

I also want to note that I appreciate the documentation on the WPforChurch.com site!

So not worth the time
By , for WP 3.8.1

I really wanted to like this plugin but after installing it and discovering that it didn't really function the way one would expect, I began to dig into the files and find out what I could do to fix some of the functionality.

IT'S A MESS! Just absolutely awful to edit. There are files that I still don't even know what they do after disabling them completely and discovering zero errors. I'm really sorry but I just cannot recommend this plugin.

As for the front end, it's super ugly. The thumbnail defaults to a very small image and figuring out how to change the image size was pretty much impossible. I had to reverse engineer the whole plugin just to change the sermon image to the large version. I had to disable the feature that lets you browse sermon series by speaker, series name and topics because those looked even worse than the shortcode output! There's just no continuity with this plugin and I literally had to edit everything about it. And they have a "premium" version but the code base is no different.

Also, they shipped it with large blocks of code commented out in a few of the files... Seriously, just avoid this plugin.
