iConnect is an online tool that serves as an online community for our church, providing ways to improve communication and connection between you and others in the church as well as between you and the church office.
We believe that belonging to a local church and sharing life with others in that setting is the best way to develop a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. iConnect is an online tool designed to help you connect with others in the life of Faith Baptist Church. iConnect not only provides you information about the people, the groups, and the volunteer opportunities at FBC, but also allows you to view your giving records and update your contact information to make sure you receive important communication from the church.
One of the best ways to start getting familiar with the system is to check out the Guide to iConnect. This guide will give you some helpful tips for using the system and direct you to some of the most important help videos and articles. Another great way to learn iConnect is to login and spend some time browsing around and checking out all the features.
Anyone can request to receive a login to iconnect. If your email address is in our church database, you will automatically receive an email with a link to activate your account and set your password (You may want to visit the guide to iConnect to learn how to ensure that the activation email shows up in your inbox rather than your junk folder). The basic level of access to iConnect will allow you to update your contact information and view your giving history. Most users who are actively involved in church life will also have access to the online church directory. In circumstances where someone is misusing the online community, the church office may restrict or block access to iConnect.
iConnect is our version of Church Community Builder (CCB). CCB works hard at making sure that all of your data is secure (CCB statements on security). iConnect lets you control what information you make available to others users of the online community. While it is encouraged to make more of your information available to other members of Faith Baptist for building community, you are able to opt out of the online directory completely or determine what information in your profile is visible to specific sets of people (See guide to iConnect for information on how to control your privacy settings). Furthermore, the church staff is limited to only have access to the information necessary to do their job.
