Data Capture aka

Digital Connect Texts

Your weekend services are too important to let any new guests fall through the cracks.

Let us help you reach more guests by adding our Digital Connect Texts to your service this weekend.


We will help you reach


New guests and visitors walk through your doors each weekend. We know you want to connect with them, and let them feel welcomed and at home from the moment they step foot in your church!

We want to help you reach those people more easily, communicate better and even make following up with them a walk in the park!

Traditional cards and online forms (connect cards) are absolutely great ways to capture your new guest's information. However, with potential new members this weekend, the challenge for most is how to capture large amounts of data in the shortest time.


Digital Connect Texts

Now you can meet this challenge with Digital Connect Texts—not to be confused with Digital Connect Cards. Digital Connect Texts are the next big thing in capturing data from your new guests.


What does a
Digital Connect
Text look like?

Take a look at this demo of what a Digital Connect Text looks like.
The screen on the left shows the guest’s experience as they are
walked through the Digital Connect Text process.

The screen on the right is what you would see as they go
through this process. Everything is automatic and instant—while
still keeping that personal touch which is so important in
building relationships!


As you can see, the guest’s Name and Email information is automatically collected and a new profile is created for them. (A bonus if you use a Church Management Software we currently integrate with like Church Community Builder or Planning Center).

After they have completed the auto data capture, your guests can also be automatically entered into an Automated Messages (AM) Campaign that you have created, and the guest follow-up process can begin!

Your weekend services are too important to let any new guests fall through the cracks. Let us help you reach even more of these guests by adding our Digital Connect Texts to your service this weekend.

Our Data Capture feature lets you

PastorsLine Digital Connect Texts
  • checkboxx[1]

    Capture important relationship-building, contact information such as first name, last name, email and birthdate.

  • checkboxx[1]

    Personalize your texting by inserting fields such as [first name]. This means that even a bulk text will feel more 1-to-1 since each person’s text begins with his or her name: Hi there, Jason.

  • checkboxx[1]

    View where your contacts are in any given signup process and resend some of the stages to encourage them to finish. Let’s say you have asked people interested to text ‘VBS’ to your PastorsLine number. You can monitor things by viewing all the people who have responded and where they are in your autoresponder series: Have they signed up? Great! Have they just texted ‘VBS’ but not gotten further? You can send them a personal text to follow up or perhaps resend one of the data captures texts to jog their memory.

  • checkboxx[1]

    Sync your data capture group with CCB. With the PastorsLine-CCB integration, you can set it up so that all those who opt in to your PastorsLine group will also be placed in the CCB process queue of your choice—no need to enter the information again. Timesaver, right?

Dozens of churches are already using
PastorsLine and seeing success.

The PastorsLine platform is a church-driven, bulk texting platform developed and managed by church ‘insiders’. We know churches intimately. We’ve attended them, been part of their management teams and worked with them for many years. Our goal is to serve you by helping you spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We’ve positioned ourselves to be your in-house, IT team for solutions to your communication issues. In addition to everything our platform can do, our partners love our responsiveness to their needs and fast tech support.


We hired [PastorsLine] to assist us in a new “Small Group” initiative we were launching at our church. The tools they provided us with helped us monitor and take action on hundreds of responses. Our workflow was cut in half and our ability to track, monitor and follow through with the data gathered more than doubled.

When we finished our evangelistic event in Houston, 70% of those who were baptized, communicated with me through had a big influence.

“[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... ”

PastorsLine has totally changed not only my workflow, but it's taken our "personal" factor up 10x! Just with our welcome process, we have gone from a 40% READ rate to a 40% CONVERSATION rate. That's just crazy!
So thanks 🙂

The personal and almost immediate assistance at [PastorsLine] is so great! We feel valued and important! We love that it is church-based!!! … Jason and the team at [PastorsLine] are always ready to help, make things better, and they also welcome feedback.

The text message bible study invites are working great. We saw a huge increase from 5-6 to 10-12 and the numbers stayed consistent.

PastorsLine has been a fantastic tool which has enhanced communication with out church family. As with any tool, the secret is in learning how to use it effectively. I have been most excited when I see my church members telling their very own unchurched friends to text “PRAY” to our pastorsline number and have them join our prayer sessions.
