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
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).
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.
You will be able to sync some or all of your CCB groups to PastorsLine.
You will be able to see all your
contacts in your contact list.
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.

First Baptist Orlando Guest Follow-up Testimonial
[The CCB sync] worked like a charm! Very impressed—a huge answer to something we’ve been looking for. I was able to send a template with a field merge by scheduling it, and I’ve loved the interface on the webpage and from my phone with the app in being able to respond. This is an immediate asset to our church and will be a game changer once you have the sub user functionality.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
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!
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.

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
“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.”

Baptism Worship Service Reminders - bulk texting—we were blown away by the number of people who showed up.
Director of Admin
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 🙂
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
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
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
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!
Joy Christian, Center,

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
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.
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
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
...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.
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.
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.
Pastors, RGF 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.
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.
