Ways to Share your directory

Now that you've completed your directory, the next step is to share it with your members!  Instant Church Directory offers multiple ways to share your directory in order to reach members in the way they wish.

Ways to Share Your Directory:

  • Print a traditional PDF of your Directory
  • Members can download the FREE member app or log in to the members' website to view your directory
  • Email a copy of your directory to your church members
  • Link the PDF to your church website with password protection (only recommended if behind a members' login portal of your website)

Print a traditional, Printed Directory from a PDF.

Once you have entered your directory data and generated your directory, you are ready to share your PDF under Share PDF.  To download your PDF, click on the "Download" link next to any generated directory.

Members can download the FREE member app or log in online to view your church directory.

Members can download the FREE member app on their mobile devices, or use the Member Login on our website to view the directory. The app and the members' website provide a robust church directory experience from any device.  Members can search for a family within the directory to view their photos and information to call, email or text.  Plus, the mobile app and online members' website is FREE with your church's paid membership.

Be sure to check out our other help articles Understanding the mobile apps for iOS and Android & Understanding the Members Online website to learn more about these features!

Email a copy of your directory to your church members.

You can choose to download your full directory as a PDF and email it to your congregation or print it. Also, you can share the URL to the PDF with your congregation by copying the URL (though be sure if you go this route to password-protect your PDF file).

If you password-protected your directory, be sure to share the password with your members so that they will be able to open and view the directory.  

IMPORTANT: Never post the password for your directory on your church's website.

Link the PDF to your church website with password protection

To copy the link to the URL to link your directory to your website, click on the "Copy URL to Share" link next to any generated directory. 

Note: If you choose to publish your directory on your website, we strongly urge you to password to protect the PDF using a secure password or is only accessible in a portion of your website that is behind a member login to ensure the privacy of your members. If your PDF is posted to your website and is not password protected with a secure password, we no longer guarantee that your directory is safe and secure from others.  You can set your password in Share PDF.
