Adding and editing sermons members is very simple to do. BUT, keep in mind that you do not actually edit the sermon page itself unless you want to add some text above or below the actual sermons.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do click the ‘edit page’ button on the sermon page, you will see codes on it that represents the sermon program. Do not remove these. It usually looks something like [Sermon]
MP3 File Size Note: All files must be under 38mb. You should be able to do this by recording the sermon at 64kbps instead of 128kbps, as there is very little quality difference between the 2.
Adding A Sermon
Click on ADD >Sermon in user menu on left of website.
Fill out the sermon form fields with the data for that particular sermon.
Click Publish (or Publish & List) at top right of panel when done.

2 different ways to modify a sermon:
- Click on APPS > Sermon in user menu on left of website. This is where you can manage all the sermons. Click on the sermon name to edit [OR]
