The integration between Faithlife Sermons and your Faithlife Site makes updating your website automatic. In fact, if you’re already using Faithlife Sermons, your published sermons will be automatically added to your site.
If you haven’t yet published a sermon with Faithlife Sermons, navigate to your church website, sign in, and follow the steps below.
1. Navigate to the Sermons page and then click Upload Sermons.
Because Faithlife Sites are created with churches in mind, every website contains a “Sermons” page by default. Once you find the page, click Upload Sermons.
You’ll be redirected to Faithlife Sermons, which houses all your sermon content. Because you’re logged into your Faithlife account, you won’t even have to sign in.
2. Upload your sermon(s) and provide metadata.
You can include detailed metadata like the speaker, a cover image, the sermon series, Bible passages, topics, tags, and much more. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for visitors to find your sermons.
If you have several sermons to upload, click batch upload at the top of your screen. For more help with batch uploading, click here.
3. Once you’ve added your information, click Save.
Your sermon will be automatically available on your website. To upload additional sermons, navigate to sermons.faithlife.com, sign in, and add your sermons. With a Sites Premium subscription, you’ll have access to a full 50 gigabytes of sermon storage.
If you use Faithlife Proclaim, your sermons will be automatically published to Faithlife Sermons and your Faithlife Site when you publish within Proclaim. Read more about the Proclaim integration below.
4. Adjust sermon widgets on your site.
Your Faithlife Site distributes sermons via widgets, which are blocks of space on your page that hold content. Widgets are connected, so when you edit a widget’s content, it updates across your site.
Each sermon widget can be designed to fit the surrounding webpage. Select the widget’s blue edit icon. The Sermons List widget editor displays with a full range of design options. When finished, click Save.
These design changes will stay with this individual sermon widget. You can adjust the design of additional sermon widgets on your website using the same method.
Adding sermons to your Faithlife Site with Faithlife Proclaim
If you use Faithlife Proclaim, uploading sermons to your website is even easier. After recording your sermon, Proclaim will display a Sermon Recording window.
Add any desired metadata, edit your audio, and then click Publish when you’re done.
Proclaim will publish your sermon to Faithlife Sermons along with the recorded slides. Additionally, it will post your sermon in your church group on faithlife.com and will auto-update your Faithlife Site.
If you host your own website and have embedded an auto-updating code, your website widget will automatically update.
