About the app

Now you and your members can sync your church's directory right to an iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, Android device or Kindle Fire!

Members can search for a family or member, and then email, call or text — right from their device. Plus, any change you make to the online directory is immediately synced with their device.

Where to download the app

Enable Mobile App Access

To enable the app feature for your members:

  • Log in to your Account
  • Choose Step 6 - Settings
  • Enable Mobile App Access

Who has access?

You’re worried about security and privacy, and so are we. Members have to register each device and directories can’t be shared. Further, only members you authorize can gain access and directories are automatically “wiped” from all their devices if you revoke access.

Sending emails and texts through the app is easy. First, open the app and click on ‘Families’.

With the new update released for the Member App on Apple devices, instead of pressing and holding on the email address/phone number, you will now simply click.

By clicking the email address it will open an new email to that address. By clicking the phone number normally, it will now give you the option to either call or message the number.

If you press and hold either the email address or phone number, it will simply copy the email address/phone number to the clip-board on your phone.
