How to Open a Congregation from Sharing

Congregation Sharing allows all approved appointed to automatically and securely share and synchronize all Congregation, member and schedule data.

If another elder or Congregation Administrator has already created a JW Scheduler Congregation and then Enabled Congregation Sharing, you can Open a Congregation from Sharing.

Your Congregation Administrator must tell you:

  1. Congregation Sharing Region
  2. Congregation ID
  3. Congregation Sharing Password

Please also be ready to create a 6-digit Member PIN. This is used to identify you, so you should please remember this.

  • Note: We kindly request each person who uses Congregation Sharing first spend a few minutes reading the Congregation Sharing Help to learn how Congregation Sharing works, how to correctly use Congregation Sharing, and what your responsibilities are.
