At Faithlife we use technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible. For more than 25 years that mission has guided everything we do. This year, to better equip the Church, we are focusing on several key areas:
- We are engaging users and helping them learn from each other in our product forums and Faithlife groups. Check out Faithlife.com to find a Faithlife group for each of our products, with active discussions from both our customers and the Faithlife team.
- We are improving integration across our products so you can spend less time doing “all the things” and more time on ministry. For example, you can now create a sermon and slides in Logos, present it with Proclaim, have the congregation follow it in real time through the Faithlife Study Bible, and publish it to the web at Faithlife TV and Faithlife Sermons.
- We are expanding our partnerships to increase the availability of content within our products to bring more value in the areas of Christian media, books, Bible study, and academia.
With this in mind, we’ll be sharing the progress that gets us excited around the office more frequently, with more intention, and with more opportunity for feedback.
Below you’ll find some highlights of how Faithlife is helping equip the Church. We are excited about partnering with you, and would love to hear how you are using our tools in your ministry—along with what we can do to better serve you.
Follow the group at Faithlife.com and share with us today.

Equipping the Church
Deepening relationships in the Church
More churches are leveraging Faithlife to communicate activities and build relationships across their church community. With improvements in event scheduling, newsletters, subgroups, and digital asset management, we’ve made it even easier to foster relationships and discipleship beyond Sunday morning.
Pastor Paul Daniel of Woodside Baptist Church in Ocala, Florida recently shared his church’s experience of going online with Faithlife products:
Faithlife has been a blessing to our body of believers at Woodside Baptist Church ever since we went online months ago. Every church body struggles in keeping connected through the week because of everyone’s busy lives. Faithlife’s church products are great tools when properly promoted and managed by church leadership and staff, and create a constant connection with the body regardless of where life might take them.
From seamless integration from the website, to sermons, news feed within Faithlife Groups, Faithlife TV, and Ministry Tracker, Faithlife has bridged our body of believers together in a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Christ, and one another. However, I wouldn’t want to be negligent in forgetting to mention the Faithlife team that has and is walking with our church leadership and staff in making all this possible—and even more in the future.”
Providing edifying and engaging content with Faithlife TV
The Faithlife TV catalog keeps growing, with feature-length films, Bible study content, and family content you can trust. From courses to kids’ content, Faithlife TV has something for the whole family. What kind content would you like to see more of? Let us know.

Our team is regularly improving and adding new features to Faithlife Proclaim to better assist you in serving your church. One new feature is Digital Signage, which allows you to display announcements, Bible art, and more throughout your building. We want to help your team make beautiful church presentations faster, simpler, and smarter—whether you’re a team of one, or 20! Follow the Faithlife community and share how you’re using Proclaim in your ministry, and how we can improve your experience.
“The Logos-Proclaim combination is one of the most intuitive pieces of software I’ve ever used.”
— Pastor Keith Wells, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Growing your faith
Helping the global Church grow
We want to increase biblical literacy and accessibility for every Christian around the world, and not just in English. To help the global Church grow in the light of the Bible, we’ve recently released Logos 7 base packages in German, Korean, and Portuguese.
And schools across the world are finding Logos to be the perfect solution for equipping their students in the Bible. Do you have a story about using Logos in a language other than English? We’d love to hear about it!
