In preparation for your training, follow the four steps below.
Step 1: Access the GrowthTrack site and log in
Save this as a favorite in your browser (Chrome Is an ideal browser). Your credentials are automatically the same as your Microsoft credentials. Your username is your Mission Increase email address (i.e. email@example.com) and the same password used. If you have trouble logging in, contact Karla firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2: Set up your Single sign-on (SSO) credentials to access the Ministry Portal
This function of GrowthTrack is for ministry leaders. Signing in with your SSO credentials allows you to successfully impersonate a ministry leader from GrowthTrack and see what leaders see.
Use your same email address/password as for GrowthTrack site, and then end this process by verifying your email address. (You do not need to set up a ministry account, as a leader would, but this initial process allows you to impersonate a ministry leader. Karla will finalize the process with our IT.) Once Karla has finalized the process, you will be able to impersonate a Ministry Portal user from the GrowthTrack. When you click the impersonate button log in using your SSO credentials, as needed.
To stay automatically logged in, hit “Remember Me” for the browser, and do not hit log out each time you visit GrowthTrack.
Step 3: Submit your presenter biography and headshot
In GrowthTrack your headshot and bio will be included with all your community events.
Headshot ideally sized around 100 pixels in width & ideally landscape and a jpeg format.
Send your headshot and biography to email@example.com.
Below is an example, in terms of length and general approach:
