Our integrations extend apps which you are already using, so you can save time, minimize human error and reduce data silos as you automatize your workflow. Using integrations allows you to mix and match apps, choosing the one best suited for the task at hand.
"I've signed up for a number of reasons; more features than with the service we are currently using, generous gree trial, better interface than current service, integration with MailChimp, carryover credits, slightly more credits per month for essentially the same price, better user option."
Admin Pastor, First Alliance Church Toccoa
"I signed up for an account for a few reasons. The demo of a product in the web helped me to see that it was exactly what we're looking for. The fact that it integrates with CCB made it an easy call. "
Director of Administration
"We've heard about Pastorsline from a post on Planning Center Facebook page. We were looking for something that's integrated with Planning Center and offers something like unlimited keywords, texting from our #, no opt-in requirements, a monthly price we can afford. We decided to give it a trial run... We have found out that it's even better than expected!"
Our Integrations feature lets you
Enjoy the best of both worlds. PastorsLine focuses on what we do best: texting and voice messages. We know that ChMSs and email newsletter systems excel at what they do. So, we build integrations between PastorsLine and the church-specific apps most people are using.
Do more data management tasks fewer times. Our integrations are deep, true, two-way integrations. PastorsLine can push data to and pull data from the apps we integrate with. This includes data capture (collect the data and push it back to the app) and automated messages (external apps can connect and create trigger points). This means a big reduction in manually moving data around...less human error, too.
Sync groups between PastorsLine and the integrated app. Groups already set up in CCB, Breeze, Tithely or PCO? Sync them with PastorsLine. Groups created new in PastorsLine? Sync them with CCB, Breeze or PCO.
Sync virtually whenever. Like most other apps, PastorsLine has a regularly scheduled sync at night. HOWEVER, we realize that lot of changes can happen from night to night. So, we offer more sync options than others. Your data is synced when you log in. It can also be synced on demand and manually. You don’t have to do a complete sync either. You can sync just part of your data such as a group or your contacts list. This is great when you want to make sure everything is up-to-date before sending out a bulk text or newsletter.
Integrate with Rebrandly. Shorter links (URLs) can save characters, giving you more message for the same credits.
Manage your duplicate contacts via Smart Syncing. Different app requirements means that sometimes, duplicate contacts occur. PastorsLine has developed a feature which searches first and last names, emails, and phone numbers; identifies duplicates; and gives you possible matches, so you can make the final choices more easily.

How it works
Do it once and do it better with Integrations...you shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel each time.
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.
Pastor @ College Drive Church
I belong to a Church Communications group on Facebook, and you were highly recommended. We signed up with you over others because we are a multi-generational church and you have an ability to reach people on landlines.
When we finished our evangelistic event in Houston, 70% of those who were baptized, communicated with me through PastorsLine...it had a big influence.
Evangelist, End Time Hope
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.
For us [a PastorsLine text-enabled church landline] has been huge for people to be able to text the number they already knew for our church. It means they don’t have to remember two different numbers when they are looking to try and get in touch with us. Most people don’t even realize its mostly an automated process.
Connections Pastor, The Exchange
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.

Baptism Worship Service Reminders - bulk texting—we were blown away by the number of people who showed up.
Director of Admin
I honestly never realized how many people must have been trying to text our landline all along! We never advertised our landline as a number you could text, but we have gotten multiple members of our congregation and even guests from some of our events to send us texts saying, ‘Thank you for this and that’, and it has been really great to see!

At first, the landline feature seemed like it would overload the church secretary since everyone would have the church phone number saved in their phones. This has not happened! People are simply interacting with our events better than ever before! We love the landline feature.
Associate Pastor, Journey Church
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 🙂
“Our land line [SMS-enabled by PastorsLine] is more familiar to our congregation. When we texted from the other number, some would inquire about who was sending the text as the number was unfamiliar, and we did not use it frequently, so by the time we sent another text, some had forgotten the number.”

...the guest connection card...We had a great response -- people whose names and contact info we might not have captured otherwise. Our autoresponder directs them to our Welcome Center...where we have a gift...with their name on it.
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.
Associate Pastor, New Believers
Thus far it’s worked perfectly!! When we wanna send out a text message we use the church office #.
When somebody calls this #, it just takes them to our office phone where a front desk agent can answer. This is perfect! Far better than our individual cell phones ringing when somebody calls our PastorsLine number. It’s only been a week but it’s working great!
Young Adults Pastor, Faith Chapel
[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. Matthew Robinson
Sending and receiving texts from our landline number is the #1 feature that ensures visitors and members can engage with us on the most relevant means of communication there is right now. Having one number to advertise, simplifies all graphics, ads, announcements, etc. for us, as well as for those we're trying to reach. I use PastorsLine EVERY DAY. It's changing the way we engage with our members - it's both easier and more effective.
It’s honestly the best feature that we have utilized. Being able to give one phone number for voice and text simplified our process.
Pastor Gateway Church, Ashland, KY
By using the same phone number for texting and calling you get people to remember your phone number. When it comes the time that are ready to reach out to us they know the phone number.
