Improve your church communications (and reduce your workload) by integrating your Church Community Builder and PastorsLine accounts.

Integrating PastorsLine and CCB gives your church improved communication and better relationships with your church members and first-time guests. Integration also reduces your workload.

Sync your CCB groups, process queues and saved searches into PastorsLine

Church Community Builder

You have already created contacts, groups, process queues and saved searches on CCB. You have already captured important data.

Why do it all over again? Just integrate with PastorsLine, and easily send group texts or voice broadcasts.

What’s the benefit to me? Glad you asked.

  • If you don’t have a PastorsLine account, you will get 1500 credits, a free local number and 30 days to give it a go. This free trial is a real account, and the number will be unique to you. This benefit is over $50 in value.

Replace Digital Connect Cards
with Digital Connect Texts

On CCB, data is captured via a form. On
PastorsLine, it is captured via text message—easier for you and your subscribers. So, capture the data on PastorsLine and send it back to CCB.

You can use the data capture (FKA autoresponder) feature to
instantly capture new data via text and push
that info into a CCB  group immediately. E.g.
first and last names, emails, birthdays, phone
numbers (Digital Connect Texts).

Two-way Sync

As your church grows with PastorsLine, you will most likely be adding new subscribers and new groups. All this can be synced back to CCB, keeping both apps up-to-date.

CCB
1

You will be able to sync some or all of your CCB groups to PastorsLine.

2

You will be able to see all your
contacts in your contact list.

3

You can create a new CCB group
or sync to existing groups from
within the PastorsLine interface.

Save Time! Integrate your Process Queues

NEW! We have created a way for you to use our data capture feature (FKA autoresponder) to capture the data of your members and guests who text into your PastorsLine group, create a profile for them in CCB and put them into a CCB Process Queue. All this is done automatically just by them texting one keyword to your phone number!

Keep your CCB Process Queues up-to-date with our 3 sync options featuring 1-way and 2-way syncs. Click the button below for more info and setup.

Easily Create an "Update directory" campaign

Keeping your staff and member personal data current is quite important...and it can be quite a headache, too. That’s why we recommend using a data capture campaign to do it for you. Once you ‘set it and forget it’, your people can update their personal information anytime and from anywhere.

No more duplicates with Smart Syncing

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Twext™ vs. CCBtext.com by PastorsLine?

Posted by: T*** ***** Mar 7, 2018

Good Morning from the Pacific Northwest!

We are wanting to use mass texting for a few of our groups at one of our campuses.  What is the best way for us to request Mobile providers from people in our database?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

T***

What happens if the data capture (FKA autoresponder) campaign is turned on and also connected to a CCB group?

Basically, your PastorsLine data capture campaign is Step 1. If it is the first time this subscriber has responded to this campaign, we capture all the relevant data you have set up. If this subscriber is already in this campaign, we notify them and do nothing.

Step 2 is smart syncing with CCB to check for duplicates. If there are no duplicates, we will add this new subscriber/contact/profile as you have set up: to CCB, to a particular CCB group/process queue, etc. If there are duplicates, we will notify you so you can deal with it manually.

What happens when you update a CCB group that is synced to PastorsLine?

Accounts are synced overnight or you can do a manual sync at any time.

 

Should I choose a shortcode or a long code when sending a high volume of texts?

For a variety of reasons, we now recommend using the short code instead of secondary numbers to send bulk messages. 

Get more details here.

Since your system allows us to add several local numbers to the same account, which number should be our main number. That is, the number our audience will use to opt into our list?

We recommend using a number your ministry already knows - your church landline. The majority of church landlines can be easily text-enabled. This does not affect your local call routing at all.

I am looking for the integration between Church Community Builder (CCB) and MailChimp?

That's a different application that is powered by our team.

Visit www.ccbchimp.com.

What do you need for this integration?

You can set up this integration as soon as both the PastorsLine and CCB apps are in place for your church AND you have created an API user on CCB and turned on the services. (It’s easy, and we show you how in the video below.)

Integrating is not scary...                                                                                              ...because PastorsLine takes excellent care of your data.

PastorsLine processes all data securely using our SSL certificate. We also follow all industry ‘best practices’ standards regarding handling and treating data. PastorsLine never deletes groups or contacts on your church’s CCB account.

In addition, you can always opt-out. Your church always retains full control of your data. At any time, you can roll back the PastorsLine app in order to easily disable the CCB integration.

The best news is that as your church grows, PastorsLine and CCB can continue to sync your new contacts and groups up to an unlimited number with virtually no restrictions.
