New feature

myEADVENTIST – Mobile and for Members

myEADVENTIST is the brand new, mobile-friendly app for church members. It provides the people in each church family with:

  • Membership profiles of the people in their family
  • Ability to update these profiles (optional)
  • Links to church resources (web site, Facebook, AdventistGiving, streaming, etc.)
  • List of church officers, with contact info
  • Upcoming church events
  • Online church directory (optional)
  • Church/School finder (coming soon)
  • Tools for pastors and ministry leaders (coming soon)

The app is currently available as a web app that works equally well on phones, tablets and PCs (and Macs).

Getting Started

Your church can begin using myEADVENTIST with these easy steps:

  1. Enable myEADVENTIST and choose optional features
  2. Invite members (by email)
  3. Members activate their personal accounts
Example invitation

Using the App

Access the app by opening the browser on your phone, tablet or PC/Mac and going to https://my.eadventist.net. For easier access on a phone or tablet, you can add the app to your Home Screen. This creates an icon and and allows you to use TouchID or FaceID to sign in.

For easier access on a PC/Mac, save the URL in your Favorites or on your desktop.

For Pastors

myEADVENTIST puts the power of eAdventist on your phone for easy access from anywhere. We will be adding tools that will allow pastors to:

  • Switch between their churches
  • Tap to open maps (Apple or Google) for members
  • Tap to call or text members
  • Create email or text messages for your Messaging Lists

For Church Leaders

We will also be adding tools for members who serve. Some examples already on our roadmap:

  • Deacons (attendance)
  • Elders (member care, visitation tools)
  • Communications (messaging lists)

    I hope changes made by members will automatically send the change to the church clerks.

    • Good point. The “Profile changes” feature shows the clerk any changes that have been made. We can look at adding notifications for the clerk, if there is a need for that.

  2. Vera myers

    Are the church members going to be able to change any information concerning other members status
    Phone numbers etc which clerks have that responsibility now
    Are they going to be able to go into church officers or other reports that only the clerk can change presently

    • Members will only be able to update basic information – like name, address, phone, email, subscription preferences. The church clerk will still play a valuable role – adding/updating/transferring members, adding/updating officers, etc.

  3. Will this negate the need for a church clerk? Can they delete themselves, or information like phone numbers, or all personal information?

    • No, members will only be able to update things like name, address, phone, email, subscription preferences. This should help the church clerks, but definitely not replace their valuable role.

  4. Marjorie Olson

    Is this app for use by all the members? Not just the clerk and pastor? Marjorie Olson, former clerk Sunnydale SDA

    • Yes, myEADVENTIST is for all your members. There will also be extra features (“tools”) in myEADVENTIST that will be available only to clerks, pastors, deacons, etc.

  5. Will members be able to see Notes written about them in the Notes section?

    • No, the “Notes” are not currently included in the Profile. However, be sure NOT to include anything in Notes that you wouldn’t want the member to see.

  6. This looks like it will be a very useful app. I’m looking forward to implementing it! Thanks for what you do to make things easier for us.

    I followed the instructions for my cell phone and it said, For BETA only.

    • Judy, the “For BETA only” message indicates that you haven’t enabled the app for your church and created an account for your self yet. The “Getting Started” part of this article includes links to a couple of articles that show these steps.

    Hello Brian. I have enabled the app for our church, and I already had an existing account for eadventist. I am still not sure how to obtain the app for my Samsung phone. Thanks for your help.

    • Your personal myEADVENTIST account will be separate from your main eAdventist account, so be sure to click the “Invite” button on your member record. The open the browser on your phone and go to https://my.eadventist.net. Once you’ve opened the web app, you can add the app to your home screen. This will make it as convenient as a native Android app.

      • Judy M Lauder

        Hello Brian.
        I have found myEDVENTIST by doing a search, however there is no option on this website to set up an account. The list of options on the left had side includes “for members only” I am looking on how to become a member. I have also looks on the eadventist website, but I couldn’t find an myEDAVENTIST link .
        Thanks Judy

  9. Will there be privacy issues such as seeing children of other members and their ages and address? Phone numbers of teens? What is the purpose/ goal of the app?

    • Good questions. The “People” part of the app (the online church directory) doesn’t include ages or birth dates – for adults or children. The family’s address is displayed, like it would be in a printed church directory. If that is a “privacy issue” for your members, you have several options – set the family’s address “confidential”, uncheck the “Include in directory” setting for the Family, turn off the “Church directory” option for your church.

      You can use the “unlisted” option to exclude a teen’s mobile phone or email.

      The goal of the myEADVENTIST app is to connect your members with easy access to information about church life (e.g. upcoming events, resources, contact info for leaders) and tools for participating in ministries (e.g. messaging, connect groups, maps, attendance).

    Is there a charge for the App for either the church or the church member who downloads the app tp their phone, computer?

    • Great question! Both eAdventist and the myEADVENTIST app are completely free for all of the churches and members in the North American Division.

    I activated my.eAdventist and invited myself. I have both the Directory and profile updates allowed. I have used it on my Android phone and on my laptop. I have two problems so far: 1) the search box at the top of the PEOPLE tab does not work. 2) the mask on the primary email field in the PROFILE section seems to only allow 20 characters…seems awfully short, and I know the email field in the actual eAdventist people tab is much less restrictive. My email is 21 characters.

    • There was a bug affecting the search in the PEOPLE tab – this has been fixed. And the Email field in the PROFILE is supposed to display 20 characters, but should allow values up to 60 characters – this has been fixed, too. Thank you for letting us know about these 2 problems.

    I have my personal Membership with My Eadventist and then my Membership ogin as the church clerk. using the same email address. it is constantly rejecting the signing and I have to create a new password. It recognizea the stored password and overlaps the other. I do not have another email to use, the other is used for my husband since we need separate email addresses to access the app for the individual profile settings what do I do?

    • Good question. You can use the same email address for both accounts. I’ll contact you directly to see if we can help you sort this out.
