Faithlife Sites overview

What is Faithlife Sites?

Faithlife Sites is a website building tool that helps small to medium-sized churches and ministries to create digital bulletins, send and share newsletters/files to members. The platform offers features such as homepage editing, search engine optimization and digital signage.

Faithlife Sites comes with a sermon archiving module that lets users upload audios, videos and text on their site. Donors can create anonymous accounts on the portal and set up recurring donations which are recorded within the church’s budgeting system. Digital bulletin functionality lets people fill connect cards, follow church presentations, and read sermon passages on their phones.

Churches can use the shared calendar to keep track of events and send customized newsletters to the community via email. The application allows users to choose menus, layouts, color schemes and fonts for their website and supports the integration of HTML and blog widgets. Additional features include a staff directory, page editing, and custom domain.

Faithlife Saves Us Money & Time

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-09-30
Review Source: Capterra

The digital bulletins and newsletters make life so much easier! I am able to create a little bit at a time as information comes in, and publish the completed version when I am ready! Also, there is a scheduling feature, so that you can have, say, your bulletin "go live" at a certain date/time!

Pros
We use the bulletins and newsletter features the most. These help us communicate with our congregation without using paper in order to reduce "touch contact" relating to the coronavirus issues. I plan to continue to use Faithlife after the pandemic is over! They offer a complete system, if you want to purchase it.

Cons
The price for the full-featured version seems steep. Although it includes multiple features, it would be nice if one could build and add as one goes along a little better. Our church is small, and the pandemic has really helped take our numbers down, along with our giving.

Response from Faithlife Corporation

Easy to use and great aesthetics

Faithlife’s customer support is like no other I’ve experienced. They love their products and work hard to partner with church ministries to achieve their goals. I highly recommend this product or any of their products for that matter.

Pros
It was so easy to switch from Wordpress to this product. Our administrator loves how easy it is to use. It is almost impossible to “ruin” your site with this product. The themes all look very pleasing and relevant, and Faithlife has great customer support.

Cons
Because it’s “fool proof” it also has many limitation on color combinations and fonts etc... this can be a pro (as it is in our case). It allows for consistency between all the pages

Thanks [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for checking in. As always, very helpful.

Used daily for 1-2 years

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been amazing. Best success manager ever. Without her support and good-natured way of being so helpful I would have cut our losses and gone back to Breeze. She does a great job, you should consider giving her a raise. Right now where we are in the process I'm hopeful. My plea is for you to be as quick and responsive to the needs we have. An example is a newsletter. Flexibility to enhance the look would be helpful. Until then we won't be using it.

Pros
Best part so far is with church admin., communicating with staff, and making changes in one place that update other platforms such as the website, or from Logos to Proclaim. Great time saver

Cons
Getting the congregation on board and using it. The easy and use of other types of platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, the things they are used to. Adding "one more thing" to this has been a challenge and when there is any difficulty in signing up, giving, slow load times, finding pages, or just how to navigate and use it, they get discouraged fast. We have and are pushing hard to get people there and using, but it has been hard.

Needs Serious Improvement

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-12-22
Review Source: Capterra

I was excited to implement Faithlife Sites for our church but it has proved frustrating for our media team. I do hope they make serious improvements or we’ll have to move back to Church Plant Media.

Pros
I love Logos and Faithlife. However, Faithlife sites does not hold up to the brands name and reputation. I trust it will catch up in quality and functionality.

Cons
The software is much too limited in its design features.

Very easy to set up

Very happy with our faithlife sites experience so far.

Pros
I am still learning the program, but so far it has been very easy to manuever, set up, and edit. It's connection with other faithlife programs and apps and the ability to flow information between simply by editing any one of them is awesome.

Cons
It does have a learning curve as does any new program.

Response from Faithlife Corporation
