Introducing our online, invite-only, opt-in church directory
Pathway's online church directory is a feature of our Church Center. You may have already used Church Center to register for a Pathway event, join a Life Group, or Kids Church sign up.
Now we're excited to offer the Directory to anyone who makes Pathway your home. In this season of "distanced living" we're hoping this added service will help us connect better with one another.
Don't worry, you choose what information you share in the Directory and you can change your privacy settings or opt out at any time.
IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION,
YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT ALONE
WHO IS INVITED INTO THE DIRECTORY?
To be invited, a person must...
have an email address;
and be an active part of the Pathway community:
be at least 13 years old.
Only Administrative Staff can send invitations to join.
How do I access the Directory?
Assuming you've received our invitation email (see STEP 1) and logged in to Church Center (see STEP 2), then...
Web browser: Click the "More" link at the top right of the screen, then the "Directory" link; or...
Mobile app: Tap the "More" icon at the bottom right of the screen, then the "Directory" link.
WHO SEES MY INFORMATION?
Only those who Pathway Church invites by email can access the Directory.
HOW CAN I CHANGE MY INCORRECT INFORMATION?
Notice something incorrect? No problem. You can edit your email, phone or address in Church Center, and the same for your household members (mobile app only). If any other information needs to be updated, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Remember, if you'd like to hide information that's shown in the directory simply uncheck the box beside it. Please do not delete profile information (unless it is incorrect) as this will also delete it in Pathway's records.
WHY IS MY ADULT SON/DAUGHTER WHO LIVES WITH ME NOT LISTED IN MY HOUSEHOLD?
For data structuring purposes, anyone who is 18 or older is placed in their own 'household'. Therefore they won't be listed in their parent's household even if they live at the same address.
This will only take effect when a date of birth is provided on the individuals profile.
WHAT INFORMATION IS SEEN BY OTHERS?
It is entirely up to you what information is viewed by others. By default, none of your information is shared. You can choose what (if anything) you'd like shown for yourself and anyone in your household. You can also change your privacy settings at any time.
What you see in your Church Center profile is the information Pathway Office has on file for you or your household. From that information you have the option to show or hide the following:
A photo (if uploaded)
Individuals in your household
Photo (if available)
Birthday (no year)
If you'd like to hide information that is shown in the Directory simply uncheck the box beside it and it won't be visible any longer. Please do not delete information (unless it is incorrect) as this will also delete it in Pathway's records.
Select information to share
After logging in and navigating to the Directory, the following message, located either near the top of page (web browser) or at the bottom (mobile app) prompts you to share your information.
When you see that message, click 'Share it now' to review your information and choose which parts to share with the others in the Directory.
If you'd like to hide information within the Directory simply uncheck the box beside it and it won't be visible to others.
