Here is a silver lining story shared by Associate Pastor Humberto Hilario of Iglesia Cristiana Buenas Nuevas. Up to the time the clouds rolled in, their church communications were “in-person (mostly) or WhatsApp/messaging for some groups. We had no communications plan or follow up strategy.” While this wasn’t the most efficient or effective communications methodology,...

A lot of people are texting. That makes sense since texting is the fastest opened, most read, and most responded to form of communication today. In this article, we are...

In times of national or international crises, our faith is tested. At the same time, though, an opportunity presents itself where those who are attending church but wavering or those who are not regular attendees, all find themselves in a desperate need and search for God. We know many of us may be at different spiritual "levels", but as a connected family, we support each of our brothers and sisters through prayer and words of encouragement. The question is when those opportunities present themselves and the standard options to drive...
Phone Systems For Churches And Ministries
Can we talk enough about the importance of guest follow-up? Before we look at a case study of how one church is handling this, let’s check out some very recent...
Reduce Communication Cracks
Some churches have a landline and then one or more mobile numbers. It is estimated that every day, 150 million texts are sent to non-mobile numbers. How many are reaching your church landline...and thus, being missed? Having several mobile numbers can be confusing for people—which to call when? In short, multiple church numbers can cause calls and texts to fall through the cracks. What if you could have just ONE number for everything—texts and phone calls. Zac Page, Pastor at Templeton Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church, Templeton, CA found that adding...

You know you said it about what feels like a million times. You made announcements from the pulpit, sent out church bulletins, spoke to people personally...and yet, your congregants repeatedly...
Moving People from Broadcast to Baptism
Outreach, crusades, and going beyond-the-walls are all concepts many of us are familiar with. We understand our commission stated in Matt 28:19. In essence, it’s “evangelism”. It’s reaching people for Christ using the contemporary tools available and a GO approach vs a “let’s wait until they come” attitude. If that’s true, then digital evangelism is exactly the same. Digital Evangelism is evangelism using digital tools and a digital strategy to drive people from online (broadcast) to offline (baptism). In this concept, the broadcast can be your live-streamed sermons, archived content...
How to Turn Church Emails into Automated, Communication Powerhouses
Don’t let the ‘lower-than-text open rate’ put you off. Email for churches is very much alive, well, and super useful. If your church is using email as your main tool...
Pastors and Leaders: Just like Mark Cuban, You Can Take your Accessibility to the Next Level
Mark Cuban has joined the group of celebrities who are sharing their “phone numbers” with the public. Why? In an article in The Dallas Morning News, Cuban explained that he thinks it’s important for businesspeople to be accessible. Cuban wants to set an example of this and tries to get back to 20-30 texts each day. Other celebs, such as Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Lopez, and Kerry Washington say it’s about being more accessible to the public. However, it’s not his PERSONAL phone number which Cuban is giving out and the...

Case Study: Filling in your Church’s Communication Cracks
Perrysburg First United Methodist Church is “here to serve, not to be served”. They serve a long list of local, national and international missions that support adults, youth, and children. Successfully running all these important missions depends on communication: people need to know what’s on offer as well as where to be, what to do, and when to show up. Church administrative assistant, Melissa Mc Gurk shared with us her church’s journey (so far) with PastorsLine to meet their need for reliable, comprehensive communication. The other methods just weren’t enough...
