- Newsletter Search for Adult Church Members
This search finds adults who are church members, and who still live in the local area.
- Newsletter Search-Expanded
This starts with the previous search, but adds a group in order to include non-members of the church who are enrolled in a Life Group or who have visited recently.
- Multiple Groups in a Single Search
In this video, we build a more complex search with what we refer to as groups. One section matches every Condition in the group and the next section matches any one of the Conditions in the group.
- Teachers in Several Divisions
This search is based on a condition that looks at the person’s Member Type within a specific Program and Division. In this case, we want to find Teachers in any of 4 different divisions.
- Prospects that Attended VBS
This search looks for children that attended VBS at least once, are not enrolled in a Life Group, and do not have an adult family member who is a church member.
We have a help article for every Condition in Search Builder that explains how to use that particular Condition.
