The mission of Faithlife is to “use technology to equip the church to grow in the light of the Bible.” And we really mean it. I didn’t take the job until I asked the VP who interviewed me, “What is your company mission?,” and he said, “to serve the church.” I have also listened with two critical ears to all the public statements of CEO Bob Pritchett since I arrived. I wanted to know if he would articulate Faithlife’s mission carefully, and I wanted to know whether he really cared about that mission. He did. He does.
The team I’m on, the Logos Pros, serves the company mission in a pretty direct way. We serve our users—you—by providing free software training with a “missional” twist. Every time you watch one of the Logos Pros’ many videos, or read one of our many posts on the Logos blogs, you get exegetical or theological insight along with the software training.
But there are many more ways we can help you get more out of your Bible study and learn how to use Logos. Here are just a few—one from each member of our team.
Simplify your searches with Jacob
In addition to spearheading the development of the new Systematic Theologies Interactive, Jacob has helped improve an essential tool that you can experiment with right in Logos. By expanding the “cookbook” of search examples for basic and media searches, Jacob’s made searching in Logos much simpler.
Try it. Just open up a new search tab and click “Basic.” Practice some of the searches to get a sense of what Logos can do.
Learn how to study the Bible with Jon
Jon is the major writer behind the training videos for the 10-Day Bible Study Challenge, a course which uses the OIA method—Observation, Interpretation, Application. Thousands of people have taken on the challenge, and its not too late for you to join in. Sign up below, or learn more about the challenge.
Read more words by Mark
I put words on the Internet, mostly at the Logos Blog and Logos Academic Blog. You can get some of that content delivered straight to your inbox when you sign up for the Bible Study Tips email list. Sign up below.
Learn advanced search techniques with Adam
Adam serves a dual role at Faithlife: he is an extremely experienced customer service rep who knows our users’ needs, and he’s also a Logos Pro. One of the ways Adam can help you is through one of his many webinars. I asked him which one he thought was the most helpful, and he pointed to the “Advanced Search Techniques” webinar. Check it out at our webinar archive page.
And don’t forget to sign up to be notified of future webinars from Adam and others.
