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.

To enable the app feature for your members:

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.
