I heard about PastorsLine by searching up ten-digit number text options after our shortcode was running out.
Youth Pastor... said that it was the best thing he's spent budget funds on ... He loves it!
I think text enabling the church's landline was fantastic... It provides a framework for team communication to visitors and members from the number that they can find on Google or our website. I love this feature.

Text reports and analytics with PastorsLine
Ultimately it was the length of the free trial that convinced our leadership to try the service.
the tiered pricing and flexibility to add credits and change levels.

We were looking into text-in-church and came back to compare to Pastor's Line and really liked some of your unique features like the texting data capture.
It has been a great feature to be able to use the landline hosting feature for our account. It allows us to promote one phone number for our church people.
I chose to go with Pastors Line because of the call forwarding with masking feature. (This is big for us being a church plant without a building and designated church phone line.)

PastorsLine credits roll over vs. TiC

You are church focused and have a developed strategies to help churches maximize the potential of texting.

the main reason we signed up was there was a free trial, and it was easy to do so.

We ultimately ended up choosing you based on your integration with Planning Center as we weren't looking to create multiple databases.

Alternative to Twexting. Love the free trial. CCB Texting / SMS
I saw your dedication to improving the product and excellent attention to detail in how churches would use the software.
Thank you for doing this amazing platform!!! I heard from Pastors Line from a friend of mine that use it for her church. She gave me the best review and even showed me how to work when I got our church account set up.
In comparison to competitors, PastorsLine has: user-friendly interface, free trial no cc required, group msg keyword selection unlimited.
We were looking for something that would help us with hospitality, and was not astronomical on the cost front and this looked like a good combination for the two
Plain and simple "Breeze" They sent out a message about how they were beta testing a link with Pastorline... his has made life super easy for us and we look forward to working with you for many years to come.
