Managing Your Digital Church

Step 1

Go to your church group on Faithlife.com

Sign in to FaithLife.com using the same email and password you used to buy your subscription. Click on your church group in the left-hand sidebar.

Step 2

Update your church info

First, let’s make sure your church’s name, info, and location details are all correct. Click on the icon with three dots on the right side of the banner. Select “Settings” from the list.

On the Group Settings page, you can modify your church’s name, add location and about information, and more. Go through the various sections and make sure everything looks good.

For more information about the Privacy section, read below.

Step 3

Set your church's privacy

One of the most important sections on the Settings screen is the Privacy level of your group.

By default, your church is Public. This means that anyone can find your church, follow it, and see the content that people post.

If you'd like content posted to be visible only to your church group members, consider changing your church to Private. People will still be able to find your church group—they just won’t be able to read posts until they join.

Step 4

Customize your branding

The first thing that people will see when looking at your church in Bible Engagement Project is your church logo. Good branding goes a long way in helping people know how to find you!

To customize your church branding, let’s head back to your church’s activity feed by clicking “Activity” at the top of the left-hand sidebar. You can change the logo or the banner image by clicking on the photo icon.

A popup will ask you to sign in and authorize Amber, Faithlife’s digital media tool. Amber is a helpful way to upload images and videos and to find tons of free stock imagery.

Feel free to upload your own image or pick something you like from the stock imagery.

Step 5

Edit Posts

There may be an occasion where you will need to remove something a member has posted to your church group. To delete a post, navigate to the post on your Activity feed. Click on the down-facing triangle in the top right corner of the post you want to delete. Select “Delete” from the list.

Step 6

Manage Your Church Members

The last key thing to know about your church group is where to find and manage the list of all your church members.

This is done in the “Directory,” found near the top of the left-hand sidebar.

Let’s say you’d like to make one of your members into a moderator for the church group.

First, select the member in the Directory. We recommend creating a small group for each Bible study you have. If you have any youth groups, create a small group for each of them. Consider creating small groups for volunteer groups as well, so they can talk and share information using the Bible Engagement Project app.

With a member selected, click on the Actions button. Select “Change to: Moderator” from the list.

If you’d like to remove a member from your group, you can follow the same steps but select “Remove from group” from the Actions list.

It’s important to know that removing a member from your church will revoke their access to Bible Engagement Project—but you will learn more about how that works in the next step.
