Adding Sermon Series through RSS feeds

Tithely Church Apps are designed so that your app can integrate your audio sermons from any source that generates an RSS Feed to create the best possible experience for your church to access the media that your church produces.

IMPORTANT: If you are having issues adding your RSS Feed URL, it is possible that your feed is not valid. The RSS Feed must pass specific criteria. Please use https://www.rssboard.org/rss-validator/ or https://validator.w3.org/feed/ to check to see if your feed is valid. Please note, while there are other feed validators out there, these listed validating tools take into consideration all criteria needed for validation on the Church App.
