SMS / Texts

Text messages (aka SMSs) are the #1 form of mobile digital communication in use today. With the human feel of personalized bulk texting, you can reach  1,  100s  or  1000s  of people in a non-intrusive way. Added features make bulk texting not only economical but reliable.

PastorsLine SMS / Texts

Sending texts is one of PastorsLine’s core features and should be one of the main tools in your digital communication strategy. Here’s why:

90% read within 3 min. of receipt + 90-second response rate on avg.

SINGLE 1:1 MESSAGES: Just like you do on a personal level, from you to them and from them to you.

GROUP MESSAGES: The real powerhouse of PastorsLine—sending the same personalized message to many individuals, so it looks like a single, 1:1 message + each reply comes only to you.

Using TEMPLATES helps conserve even more resources.

Our platform’s AUTOMATION CAPABILITIES save you time, too. Schedule templated and automated SMSs for the future.

STANDARDIZING NON-GSM FORMATTING keeps texting costs down. Some punctuation / special characters in your text messages (known as Unicode or non-gsm characters) could be raising your costs. So your 160-character text could actually be charged at 2 or 3 times the price. PastorsLine automatically scans every text message, changing the non-gsm formatting into gsm formatting to save you money.

FAILED MESSAGE REPORTING because your texts should be reaching their destinations, and if not, you need to know. PastorsLine’s failed message reporting is now more transparent via our failed message badge. We alert you in your Inbox, your Logs, and take out the ‘wondering why’ by showing you the reason, so you can follow up.

The PastorsLine FAILSAFE MESSAGING SYSTEM keeps delivery percentage as high as possible due to several servers + if a message fails, we will try resending it once. If that doesn’t work, we will affix the failed message badge, so you can follow up.

In an ideal world, you would have the time, staff or both to personally message each and every one of your membership. Next best method? Bulk texting with upfront, first ‘date’ data capture to get contact details for future personalization and segmentation (grouping). So, although you are sending a ‘general’ message, it is relevant with a ‘human’ feel.

Schedule individual and group texts. It's a given that regular contact keeps a relationship strong. Thing is, you don't always have even a few minutes to send off a quick text. Solution: whenever you have a block of open time, create and schedule as many routine text messages as you can. For example, reminder texts about annual events or a 'Bible quote of the week' series.

With PastorsLine, you can send text messages to many people at one time. You can’t do this with your normal phone service. Group texts are possible, but if you want to tell 500 people that your weekend service has been canceled due to weather, this is not going to be practical with just a group message. You need a complete system to keep track of your contact list and to send out your messages. With our system, your contacts can also opt out of receiving messages if they change church membership, due to school enrollment or just loss of interest in that specific communication.

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.
