E-GUIDE: First Baptist Orlando's One text, Guest Follow-Up Strategy

The data discussed in the guide is based on what Dr. Matthew Robinson, a former Connections Pastor at First Baptist Orlando, implemented for their church using PastorsLine. He shared that '[PastorsLine is] a huge answer to something we've been looking for. I was able to send a template with a field merge by scheduling it...'

Dr. Robinson was able to easily delegate this process to their new Connections Director, Reid Adams. Adams also shared that '[After using] PastorsLine as a part of our strategy for guest follow-up and member engagement, ... the conversations, responses, the opportunities for ministry and the increased engagement level which we've seen has been incredible.'
