Preaching Mode provides a custom view of your sermon optimized for when you’re preaching. You can also use it to control your sermon slides in Proclaim with the Logos Mobile app (optional).
Note: To use Preaching Mode to control your Proclaim presentation from your mobile device, you must first build your sermon using the desktop Logos app, send it to Proclaim, and go On Air in Proclaim. With those three steps complete, you can control your presentation. This article will lead you through those steps.
1. Build Your Sermon in the Logos desktop app.
In order to access sermons in the Logos Bible mobile app, you must first create them using the Logos desktop app. Learn more about creating sermons with Logos.
2. Publish Your Sermon to Proclaim.
From the Sermon Builder in the Logos desktop app, click Publish at the top of your sermon.
From the menu that appears, select Send to Faithlife Proclaim. Then select your group and whether to add to an existing presentation or a new one before sending the sermon to Proclaim by clicking Send.
3. Make sure Proclaim is On Air.
When Proclaim has finished syncing your sermon slides and your presentation is ready, click On Air in the upper right of your Proclaim window.
At present, the sermon integration between Logos and Proclaim is one way. Logos sends your sermon slides to Proclaim, but changes to your sermon slides in Proclaim will not be reflected in Logos.

- If you don’t see the slides on the left, tap the slides icon to make them visible.
- Tap the text settings icon in the upper right to make changes to how your personal notes display.
To optionally control your live Proclaim presentation, set “Control Proclaim presentation” to Yes.
Tap any slide to display it on the screen. An orange indicator to the left of the currently projected slide shows to confirm your selection. Only your slide displays—none of your personal notes show on screen.
Preaching Mode + Proclaim means you can both have your personal notes available and retain full control over each transition for your congregation.
Note: When your presentation is On Air, anytime you tap on a slide, it will override the presentation and immediately display that slide on the screen. The computer running Proclaim can, in turn, click any slide in the presentation to override your selection.
