Getting Started

Add or Edit a Family

We take you through the process to add a family or individual to your directory.

Pastor Letter

Provide members with a letter from the Pastor. Enter name, title, letter copy, photo and signature for a personal touch.


Enter names, titles and photos of your staff members — with photo captions, if you want. A current staff directory is a must-have for introducing new and existing members to your staff.


Upload a photo per family or use our import tool to upload multiple photos and assign to family entries. Edit, delete or update photos as often as you need. Request photos or members can submit their own photos for approval, too.

Cover Page

Select any photo and title for the directory cover — or choose your own art or illustration!

Customize Your Directory

Creating Groups

Add individuals or families to a group then add a directory just for that group! You can create as many group directories as you want.


Inform members about the many ministry opportunities available at your church. Use the Activities tab to create attractive displays of various church groups and events.

Directory PDF Page Options

You can create your directory PDF using any or all of our page options and layouts.

Members Submit Their Own Updates

Members can submit suggested updates to their address, photo, email address or phone number right from the online directory for administrator approval.

Import or Export Directory Data

Import basic information via .CSV to jumpstart creating your directory. Export directory data to create mailing labels or mail merge documents.

Share Your Directory

Generate a PDF to Print

Before you can download or share your directory or one of your group directories, you must first generate them. You can choose your page options, upload custom pages and update your print options as well as choose your own secure password for your directory PDF.

ICD Member Apps

Our free apps allow members online or mobile access to the directory as the directory syncs to their mobile devices. Administrators enable this feature.

Broadcast News and Text Messaging

Our free emailing service provides quick and easy communication to your members. Our optional text messaging service sends text messages from your administrator account to members' mobile devices.


Share your directory with your members using our mobile apps or online members' directory website.
