Top Pricing FAQs
FAQ 1: Does choosing a plan depend on the size of my church?
No, absolutely not. Choose your plan based on the number of SMS (or voicemail) msgs you want to send regularly.
FAQ 2: What happens if I run out of credits?
Buy some more—we’ve got a choice of ‘credit buckets’ to choose from. Alternatively, upgrade your plan. Change your Credit Threshold in User Settings-Notifications so we can alert you to take action.
FAQ 3: What is a credit?
Basically, a credit is the cost of sending (or receiving) 1 SMS msg of up to 160 characters to one person in the U.S. and Canada (other countries vary). So, an SMS msg of 155 characters to two people costs 2 credits in total. Same for an SMS msg of 180 characters to one person. MMS msgs cost 2 credits each. Voicemail msgs cost 3 credits each. Credits NEVER expire. Rolls over month after month, year after year!
FAQ 4: What if I only need texting a few times a year and not monthly? Basically, I want to ‘pay as I go’.
Here’s what we suggest: Our least costly annual plan is $100, including a bucket of 3600 credits—that’s about $8 per month or 27 cents per day. From what we’ve seen, ‘paying as you go’ several times a year will add up to about the same cost overall AND you probably won’t be getting a platform as comprehensive and user-friendly as ours. Plus, we offer some great integrations to apps you may already be using. If you find yourself texting more often and running out of credits, you can always buy a ‘one time’ bucket of credits.

PastorsLine offers Voice and SMS enabled phone numbers globally. These phone numbers are either generally available (GA) or in Beta.
You can now invite your entire team to use PastorsLine.
Our multi-user option gives you lots of choices, including the ‘role-based user’ profile: users see only the groups which they have been assigned and perform only those actions for which they have been given permission.
Share one, single telephone number among several team members who are working with the same groups, on the same event/project, etc. … everyone sees everything for the full picture.
Give each team member his or her own, unique telephone number so that each person sees only the messages that are connected to him or her ... saves time sifting through unneeded messages and makes sure texts don’t fall through the cracks.
Changes can be made at any time by the admin: number of monthly credits, permissions, groups which can be accessed, etc. … means that your setup flows with and adapts to your church’s needs, not the needs of the platform.
Not just our word
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
The text messaging service we use is: www.pastorsline.com. Excellent web based interface. You can send texts, voice broadcasts. Very easy to use. One of the best new tools I have integrated in my evangelism is what [PastorsLine] provided... Can’t praise it enough!
Pastor @ College Drive Church
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.
[PastorsLine] works well for us and has been very successful.
Communications @ Union Baptist Church
[Text messaging] has made it easier to contact members on Fridays wishing them a Happy Sabbath and to let them know of Sabbath activities...
Pastor @ Concord International
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
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
Exciting! Just sent out my first text and I'm able to interact with them. On top of that, Chrome [sends notification] and it tells me when I get texts!
