You can publish your full sermon transcript on Faithlife Sermons directly from the Logos Sermon Editor. If applicable, Logos will even post handouts and audience questions along with your sermon.
1. Open the Sermon Editor
To build a sermon within Logos, open the Sermon Editor. You can do this by opening the Docs menu, clicking New, and selecting Sermon.
You can also open the sermon editor through the Tools menu.
2. Add Sermon Info
Provide a sermon title and any other relevant information. The more details you provide, the easier it will be for people to find the sermon.
Sermons are set to auto-publish to Faithlife Sermons by default. You can choose to publish your sermon as your user account on Faithlife Sermons, or as your Faithlife church group. Uncheck the box to turn off auto-publish.
Did you know? You can also send your sermon to Proclaim to present it on the date you set in your sermon info section.
Click Done with sermon info when you’re done adding the sermon’s details.
3. Add sermon content
The Sermon Editor gives you all the tools you need to build a sermon. It will even create slides for you as you type, among many other powerful features.
4. Export your sermon
Click Export in the top right-hand corner of the Sermon Editor.
Note: If your sermon is set to publish automatically, it will publish at the given date.
Sending your sermon to Faithlife Proclaim will import your sermon slides directly into your service. A draft of your sermon is automatically created on Faithlife Sermons. After you record your sermon in Proclaim and publish it, your slides along with the accompanying audio will publish to Faithlife Sermons.
To bypass Proclaim and send the sermon directly to Faithlife Sermons, click Post to Faithlife Sermons.
Select a Faithlife Sermons Profile and click Next.
Posting your sermon as a draft will allow you to add any other media before officially publishing the sermon. When you’re ready, click Post.
Your transcript and any designed handouts or questions will post to Faithlife Sermons.
5. Find your sermon on Faithlife Sermons
To view the sermon on Faithlife Sermons after its publication, navigate to sermons.faithlife.com in your browser and sign in. Click My sermons to view a list of all your draft and published sermons.
Select the sermon you added from the Sermon Editor. You can add any audio or video files if applicable by dragging and dropping the files and Faithlife Sermons will display them on your sermon’s page.
Just below, you can toggle between your Notes & Transcripts and Handout or Sermon Questions if applicable.
Logos communicates with Faithlife Sermons to separate out your transcript, handout, and questions.
- Notes: anything from the Sermon Editor except for the prompt style
- Transcripts: transcribed text from your sermon audio
- Handout: anything marked Handout in the Sermon Editor
- Question: anything marked Question in the Sermon Editor
With a transcript uploaded to Faithlife Sermons, the Sermon Tone Analysis tool automatically evaluates the tone of your sermon and displays the results below.
Note: To edit your sermon’s transcript, return to the Sermon Editor, make your changes and repeat the export process above. Faithlife Sermons will recognize the sermon and update the original sermon’s transcript. Any files or documents uploaded on Faithlife Sermons will remain untouched.
