Use and Permissions

We are a local church and have purchased a subscription to With whom can we share our log in information?

Your membership provides access for everyone in the church, including clergy, board members, church treasurer, paid staff, volunteer workers, and any other member of a single, local congregation or parish. If you meet together, work together, and worship together at the same site, then you can share your access to the account.  . The following examples illustrate this principle.

Example 1. A local church purchases an annual membership. The pastor, board members, church treasurer, staff members, volunteer workers, and other members within the church all use the same Login and Password to obtain resources and training. This is an appropriate use of the privileges.

Example 2. Same facts as Example 1, but the church starts a mission church with twenty-five families from the congregation, and supports a new pastor for the new mission church. They allow the pastor of the new church to use their Login and Password to gain access to the website. This is a violation of the membership privileges. The new congregation must obtain its own membership.
