With Faithlife Equip, you have the tools you need to disciple your people, foster community, and steward your resources.

If you ever have questions or get stuck, you can find answers at support.faithlife.com. Or you can contact us at support@faithlife.com or call us 365 days a year at 888-634-2038.

The following five steps are recommended for getting started with Faithlife Equip. Depending on your church’s priorities, you may want to tailor your approach to your specific needs. If you need help, our team is happy to assist. Contact us. 

 1. Assemble your core team

You probably have a team of people in mind who will help you set up and administer all of the tools and features included with Faithlife Equip.

2. Set up your teams

Once your core team has joined your group, you’ll need to assign them to the roles (for example, making them a group admin) and to the teams they need to do their work.

Teams are subgroups that are linked to your primary church group. Joining the different teams provides special permission to team members to manage the church’s website, data, presentations, or finances. For example, anyone who joins the “Presentation Team” will be able to collaborate on Proclaim church presentations for your church.

For most churches, the presentation team (using Faithlife Proclaim) and the finance team (using Faithlife Giving) are the best places to start.

3. Add important content to your church group

Your church group serves as a hub for all of Faithlife’s tools and features. You’ll want to add a description for your church, header image, contact information, etc., before you invite your congregation to join.

4. Activate Faithlife Giving

Ensure you’re ready to receive donations and payments. After you’ve completed a brief activation form, you’ll be all set.

Before you start the form, make sure you have the following information at hand: 

  • Your church or ministry’s legal name and Tax Identification Number
  • Your church or ministry’s bank account and routing number
  • The church’s primary contact’s name, date of birth, and social security number

5. Invite your congregation

When your group is all set, it’s time to invite your congregation to join. Becoming members in your group allows your congregants to access all of the content available to your church through Equip and also to connect with each other through messaging, access to your group’s calendar, and more.
