Logos Opens Phoenix Development Office

Logos Bible Software has hired some great software developers in the past year, but we still need more!

Earlier this year we offered a $1,000 Logos credit to anyone who referred us a programmer we hired. We’re happy to extend that offer, and hope lots of you will take us up on it.

We believe that Bellingham, Washington is one of the country’s greatest places to live, and we’ve gone to great lengths to make our office here a Best Workplace. But sometimes moving to Bellingham isn’t possible for everyone.

So in January we’re opening a development office in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Different weather, different community size, and more people who can join our team without having to move!

(Why Phoenix? To start with, we have direct flights from Bellingham’s easy, little airport to the easy, little Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport. And then there’s the sun, which apparently spends the winter in Arizona so we will appreciate Bellingham’s glorious summers all the more. . . .)

So now it doesn’t matter if you want a big town or small town, a large office or a small group of co-workers, waterfront living or a desert paradise. If you’re a software developer who wants to serve the church and the world, we’re the place to be—in two places!

All of our software development jobs are now open in Bellingham or the Phoenix-area office.

Logos 4: Quickly Preview Different Bibles

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars and provides many training materials.

mp|seminars Tips

We of course have our favorite Bible as we read and study the Scripture: ESV, NASB, KJV, etc. It’s always a good idea, however, to read a passage in multiple versions. If we’re reading in the ESV, seeing how the NKJV translates the same passage may help us understand the text a little better. Here’s a very quick way to see other Bibles as you read in your preferred Bible:

  • Open a Bible to a passage like the Christmas story in Luke 2:1
  • Press the F7 key on the keyboard (if you’re a Mac user you’ll probably also need to hold down the fn key)

What appears on the screen is a preview of Text Comparison which is located on the Tools menu. This popup preview, using the prioritized Bibles as set in the Library, displays as many Bibles as you have room for on the screen!

If you’d like to see a range of verses in the preview, simply type that range in the reference box of the Bible. For example type Luke 2:1-10 in the box and then press F7 (Mac user don’t forget the fn key) and watch what happens!

Proclaim Beta Free through January 1!

A free beta of Proclaim is now available! Logos has just released the newest church presentation software on market and made it free to use for your church through New Year’s Day 2012.

Download it now or go to the Proclaim website for more details.

What Is Proclaim?

Proclaim is church presentation software which is going to change the way pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners put together a presentation.

With this newly developed, cloud-based software, your weekly presentations are available online for contributions from every member of your team. This fully collaborative worship solution allows pastors, worship leaders, church admins, and other team members to access and edit the presentation throughout the week.

Because your presentation is online, you can access or present from any internet connected computer. Your presentations are fully cached on your computer once they are opened, so even if you lose internet connection during the service, your presentation will not be affected.

Proclaim connects directly to your CCLI Song Select account to easily pull in song lyrics. There is no more going out to the internet to copy and paste lyrics hoping they are correct. Simply connect your Song Select account and type the song name, and Proclaim takes care of the rest.

You’re going to find that Proclaim is:

Go to ProclaimOnline.com for information, screenshots, and to download your free Proclaim beta.

Downloading Proclaim

Once you download Proclaim, you will be prompted to:

  • Set up a new group—Simply create a group with a name which is specific to your church or worship team. At this point, you can invite others into the group using their email addresses or they can download Proclaim and find your group by name.
  • Enter any pertinent account information—Here is where you would enter in your CCLI Song Select or Graceway Media account.
  • Purchase an “On Air” license—Your “On Air” license allows your Proclaim presentations to be exhibited. You can purchase your “On Air” license at any time during the beta period and take advantage of introductory pricing. If you do purchase an “On Air” license, you will not be billed until the end of the beta period.
  • Start creating your first presentation.

When putting together your presentations, you can subscribe to content from Graceway Media, purchase content à la carte from within Proclaim, or upload your own media and backgrounds. Do you want to see what in-store media will look like in your presentation? All you have to do is add the media and preview the presentation to see it in context before purchasing. Between the background images, smart media, and video loops available in the store, you are sure to find the right creative elements for your service. As a bonus, you will find some free media to use in Proclaim during the free beta period.

A Note for Logos 4 Users

With Proclaim, pastors can send their Scripture and teaching illustrations directly from within Logos 4. Incorporating content from Logos 4 is as easy as right clicking on an image or verse and hitting “Send To Proclaim.” Your content will automatically post when you have Proclaim running and open in the background.

So, download Proclaim today and enjoy it for free during beta period, follow Proclaim on Facebook and Twitter, and then join the discussion with other users in our Proclaim Forum.
