After getting your Church details set up in Empower, one of the first things you’ll need to do is
begin adding Households into the system.
If you are transitioning from PowerChurch Plus Software or another church management software, be sure to contact us about transferring that data for you. Our import function and our
technical support team will be happy to help.
If you are importing from another software, Households might also be recognized as Families.
If you’re ready to add your first Household, let’s walk through those steps together.
Navigate to the Households page via Membership in the Top Menu.
Once you’ve arrived there, find the Page Menu. These are just right of the Page Title.
To add a Household, we will click on the Add button.
When you click Add, a pop-up window will appear. It will ask you to Enter the names of the people in the new household. Enter the names of each person by clicking on Add Another Member for each person needed.
You can also set Roles for each person in the Household.
The default role will be Primary Adult. This designation will signify the head of household. You can set more than one Primary Adult per household. The alternative designation is a Child.
When you’ve finished entering people, click on the Next button.
