  • Re: How is your church adapting for COVID-19?

    We added a button to Faithlife's Messages feature that initiates a video chat (browser based, no download, no log-in) instantly, and pastes the URL into the chat. It supports screen sharing as well. https://faithlife.com/messages, and just pick the group (that you're a member of), and when you use the video button (right next to 'Send' in the place

  • Update from Bob Pritchett - Faithlife, COVID-19, etc.

    It's nice to learn you had the right plan... but a pandemic isn't the way I'd have chosen to prove it! Our mission statement: We use technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible. Of course most of that mission statement isn't particularly unique: it's what churches do! But the past few weeks have shown everybody how the 'technology

    So sorry to miss you! I had a 3:10 am flight (!) and so I left right after the event. And I didn't think anyone would be looking for me! I'm glad you were able to see the film, though, and that you were able to participate in the interviews. Thanks for using Logos for so long!

    The few Lexham titles I just checked all had 'See Inside' functionality (on a button below the book cover). FWIW, I know we're working on improving our page preview functionality for print pages... is there a particular title(s) that need more preview? We've discussed getting full table of contents preview, even apart from 'See Inside', and this is

  • Re: The future of Logos and Faithlife: Help us make the right decisions!

    I started using Logos when I was in seminary (1992-1995). Thanks for sticking with us so long! I do get the point about a really small church -- at a certain size, you don't need many tools. And that's fine, and also why we're making so much of the Faithlife platform free, so small churches can use what's helpful without a big cost. A lot of the functionality

    [quote user="Kevin A. Purcell"]I agree wholeheartedly with Graham’s sentiments. I would add that our church uses Proclaim and I use Logos, but we will not be moving our website any time soon even if you said, “here’s all you need for free for life” just because what we pay is so low and so under utilized by the congregation and

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"] If you're going to attract churches like ours, you would need to do at least one of the following: Offer a modular system, whereby we could choose which parts we wanted. Reduce the costs for smaller churches in recognition that small churches have far fewer problems that CMSs can solve. Offer sermon import to websites, and

    We’ve been building Logos Bible Software since 1991. It’s the heart of everything we do, and of accomplishing our mission: We use technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible. Logos is the premiere tool for people who are serious about Bible study. It’s heavily used by pastors, scholars, seminary students, and lay

  • Giving receipts -- annual or quarterly?

    How often does your church send a statement/receipt for giving? I know many churches do it annually, but I recently talked with a pastor doing it quarterly. What do you do? Is it all 'data' or do you include a letter or a message? Do you tell people what their giving supported? Do you thank them? Do you include a copy of the budget or any information
