Sermon Import & Transfers

The Sermon Import tool can be used for a one time import to your Amplify Website sermons module. 

Before Your Begin

To import Sermons, the Amplify Websites module supports most popular podcast files (RSS/XML) and also CSV (spreadsheet) files.

We do our best to match the appropriate fields from your file to Amplify. To ensure the content will be imported as you'd expect, try doing a test first by limiting your import to only one item. Afterward, then import with no limit.

Media items (audio, video, images) are queued for upload once the import is complete. For most imports, you'll see those media items attached to your sermons after a couple hours.

Import Steps

To perform a one time import of your sermons, within your Amplify Website dashboard, go to Admin > Site > More Menu link (top right) > Import

Import Type

Select Sermons from the module dropdown

Content File

Upload a podcast RSS/XML feed or a CSV (spreadsheet) file

Content Map

For each content field in Amplify, a selection of fields from your file is shown. Each field is pre-selected for you where possible. For most podcast feeds, this mapping doesn't need to be customized. If providing your data via spreadsheet, you may need to ensure the appropriate fields are selected.

Note: if importing via CSV (spreadsheet), make sure your file includes a "header row" including a name for each column.


This sets the number of items that will be imported. For podcast (RSS/XML) files, this means the latest items will be imported first.

Bulk Assign

You can add any number of Categories and Groups to your sermons using the bulk assign area. Any category or group assigned in this section will be added to each imported sermon.


Once you have verified all of your selections, click Import.
