How to assign Verbum resources to your Faithlife group



Now that you’ve acquired new Verbum resources for your church group, you’ll need to assign them to the members of your group. In this article, we’ll walk you through that process step by step.


Are you a license recipient? Skip ahead to instructions on how to get started with your new resource(s).


If you purchased resources, but don’t have permission to assign them, ask your group’s administrator for assistance. To find your group’s admin, click Directory in the navigation sidebar, and look for the group member(s) with the Admin tag.



If you’re still having trouble, give us a call at 888-634-2038 (US/Canada) or +1 360-450-3542 (International). We’re happy to help.


Step 1. Go to and sign in to your account


Step 2. Find your church group


Step 3. If you haven’t done so already, invite the resource recipient(s) to join your group


Step 4. If sending new invites, wait for invitees to join the group

Step 5. Go to “Settings”


Step 6. Select “Licenses”


Step 7. Click “Assign” for the relevant resource(s)

Notice that some resources are automatically distributed to everyone in your group, while others must be manually assigned by an Admin.


Step 8. Add names and click “Assign”


Step 9. Let people know about their new resource!

Now that you’ve given your group members access to a resource, they’ll receive a notification and email automatically that lets them know how to get started.
