Planning Center Integration

PastorsLine now integrates with the Planning Center People app!

 2-way Integration!

Integrating PastorsLine and the Planning Center People app (PCP) gives your church improved communication and better relationships with your church members and first-time guests. Integration also reduces your workload.

Sync your Planning Center People and lists into PastorsLine. Integrates with Workflows.

Planning Center

You have already created contacts, lists, workflows on PCO. 

You have already captured important data.
Why do it all over again? Just integrate with PastorsLine,
and easily send group texts or voice broadcasts.  

Hi Everyone... Anne here.

We are so excited to share with you our newest integration. PastorsLine now integrates with the Planning Center People (PCP) App!

This integration means all of your PCP app contacts and all of your lists can automatically sync to your PastorsLine account!

With this integration, we make it easy for you to text any of your PCP contacts—and even text an entire list all at once! You can schedule texts in advance; use templates; send photos; personalize your texts with merge fields like first and last name; and connect with your church members even better!

You are being invited to give this integration a try at no risk to you or your data.

You will have complete control over what we sync. If you ever want to opt-out, you can disable the integration, and all your PCP lists  and contacts will be automatically removed.

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

In PCO, data is captured via a form. On PastorsLine, it is captured via text messageeasier for you and your subscribers. So, capture the data on PastorsLine and send it back to PCO.

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

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.

How to Set up the Integration?

Deep Dive (recommended)

Quick Start

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I synced our list, but the numbers don't match. What's going on?

We currently sync any profile from your PCP list(s), whether or not they have a phone number.

Here how we import phone numbers (when there are): a "mobile" number—if not found, then a "primary" number"—if not found, then "home"—if not found, then "work"—then "other".

I am seeing more contacts in the "My Contacts" group than I expected. What's going on?

Our philosophy is that you should be able to engage with anyone from your list as required. So, we sync all your contacts. However, you can select which list(s) you want to sync into PastorsLine.

Working in teams? No problem. Assign the different list(s) to users you invite, set limited roles and restrict access. This process is completely reversible.

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 PCO 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 PCO integration.

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

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.
