Faithlife, which offers a suite of church management solutions, including its flagship product Logos Bible Software, will provide access to a unified platform for all Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) congregations through a new strategic partnership. On June 30, during Church of God Convention 2019 and General Assembly in Orlando, Florida, Jim Lyon, general director of Church of God Ministries, and Bob Pritchett, founder and CEO of Faithlife, officially announced the partnership that will provide a way to streamline the global movement’s communications and community.
“Much like the Church of God, Faithlife is kingdom-minded and missionally-focused,” Pritchett said. “We believe technology can assist the Church of God to fulfill the vision for their movement in ways never before seen and are grateful to come alongside them to provide tools to help them run their churches, connect with their people, and equip their congregants.”
In line with the 2019 Convention theme of “Breathe, Speak, Give Life,” this new partnership will give life to the Church of God’s global movement across the US and Canada. Through the Faithlife platform, the Church of God will be able to fully integrate, acting as one Church with many locations.
“The Church of God, with offices in Anderson, Indiana, has enjoyed a rich heritage of unity and connectivity since its birth in 1881,” said Lyon. “This new partnership with Faithlife gives flesh and bone to our longstanding commitment to these foundational truths, grounded firmly in our Lord Jesus Christ, and ensures us footing to move forward.”
Through the partnership, Faithlife is also piloting its newest forthcoming platform, Faithlife Equip, in a few dozen Church of God churches.
Faithlife Equip enables churches to manage nearly every church function on the same platform including worship presentation and sermon preparation, giving, church membership management, social interaction, website building and small group resources while offering spiritual growth and education through access to books, videos, study courses, and family-friendly entertainment.
Faithlife Corporation, based in Bellingham, Washington, has been using technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible for more than twenty-five years. Since 1992, Faithlife has developed multiple tools including church presentation software, academic study resources, e-books, and Logos Bible Software.
