How to Connect
Connecting to Church Community Builder is a little tricky to connect inside the Grow app because Church Community Builder requires the API username and password instead of your normal Church Community Builder login username and password.
Here are the steps to create an API username and password in Community Church Builder.
- Log into your CCB account. Click the 'System Settings' gear icon in the upper right-hand corner, then click the API tab.
- Once on this page, click the gray 'Add a new API User' button on the right side.
- Next, fill in the API user info.
- Use the API username and password info you just created to create your data connection inside Grow.
- Click Add Metric, then select Church Community Builder as the data source. Press the blue Connect button. You can then enter your brand new API username and password.
- When you are done, press the blue Submit button.
And that's it! You are good to go.

FAQs + Tips and Tricks
I can’t find my data in the API endpoints?
If the default reports available in Grow don’t contain the precise data you want to track, Church Community Builder allows you to generate saved searches that can then be pulled into Grow just like any other report. These can be especially useful when segmenting attendance or donations data by congregation
