How do I get FX on my Sub Group Mix?

I'm using my Sub Group Mix as a live stream audio mix for our church video live stream.  I have FX in the monitors & main FOH speakers, however, I don't hear FX on the actual stream/Sub group mix.  Sorry if this is something simple but we don't have any live sound tech experts.  Thanks for any/all help  

*to be specific, we don't want to control FX by using a sub group.  Plenty of that info. out there.  I'm just using as an audio mix to a live stream but would love it to go out post effects some way.  Thx much.

You have to add FX A Return (example) as input to your subgroup, then you will be able to hear the effect. But watch out, the return fader of the subgroup is the return fader of FX A to Main L/R, so if you move this fader in the subgroup, it will add or decrease FX A on Main layer.

A matrix mix is always a better solution, because it has its own FX returns.
