What is Text In Church?

Text In Church is a web-based church communication software that helps busy church leaders spend less time managing tools and more time building relationships. The solution allows pastors to leverage technology to effectively communicate with church members and to follow up with first-time guests. Text In Church is a fully customizable solution that gives churches the option of communicating with their people with text messages or email. Users can also decide when and how often messages are sent out to church members and guests.

Key benefits of using Text In Church

  • Connect with your website traffic (Plan A Visit) - Engage with people who visit your website and turn them into church guests on Sunday.

  • Engage with your members (2-Way Messaging) - 90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes. Leverage the most powerful church texting service available to engage with your community. We’re talking increased attendance, deeper relationships and greater participation!

  • Follow-up with your guests (Automated Workflows) - Following up with your first time guests is often overlooked. However, it’s critical to the health of your church. With automated follow-up in place, your first time guests will feel connected and want to return week after week.

  • Send the right message to the right people (Group Messaging) - Whether you need to send a mass text message to your whole congregation about a weather-related cancellation or remind a bible study group about a location change, you can group your people and send tailored messages to any group immediately or a day and time in the future.

  • Powerful integrations - No more duplicate entry. Quickly connect Planning Center, Church Community Builder, MailChimp and Zapier with your Text In Church account to keep data in sync.

  • Send automated reminders to your staff - Use an Automated Workflow step to send a text message or email to a team member to take action. Let the youth pastor know when someone joins the Youth Group or ask a volunteer to make a personal phone to one of your first-time guests.

  • Award-winning customer service - In addition to our help center, we pride ourselves in providing top of the line phone, email, and in-app chat support. You can count on us to answer all your questions in a timely manner, and provide best tips and strategies around your church’s goals.

    Pros
    This software is outstanding. Not only is it easy to set up and implement, but the positive feedback you get from being able to easily communicate with guest, congregations, groups, etc, is non-stop.

    It's the best investment we've made for our church and it continues to grow and improve providing the best features you could ask for.

    We are doing a much better at data aquisition and therefore better at leading people through a funnel/process of assimilation as well as spiritual development.

    Cons
    Sometimes the integration with Planning Center Online is spotty. That can be frustrating.

    AJ

    Adam J.

    The only issue I have with the software is the lack of email open reports. You have to manually check each person to see if they opened the email.

    DK

    Danielle K.

    There was too much communication and it took forever to cancel. Then the emails were non stop.

    Easy Connection and Follow Up

    Reviewed a year ago

    Fantastic. They have shown over and over again that they will go the extra mile for you and your team. To top it off they are constantly sending us sweet swag; new books/socks/snacks. It really is impossible to not be engaged with them.

    Pros

    Fairly simple to learn and use most if not all of the functions. What you don't understand they provide quick and easy support with an amazing team that replies extremely fast to messages.

    Cons

    Have not really found any cons (not just saying that)

    GAME CHANGER!

    Reviewed a year ago

    IT's a Game Changer! It's been a wonderful tool that I am expanding every day. It makes my job so much easier! Would HIGHLY recommend it!

    Pros

    Automated workflows, ability to text or send and email, ability to personalize it. I love that it integrates with the main database I use for our church. I love that I can schedule things things to go out and not have to worry about it again. I love that I can communicate with groups of people but there is individual and personal interaction. I love that you can see who opted out of further messages and am able to update my main database. Customer service and articles are amazing!

    Cons

    Just a few things I would change....the ability snooze a person within a group when they aren't available that month but may be in the future. I would like to be able to print a report of people that opt out of texts so that I can update my main database. I would like to set a sync time. I would like separate inboxes for different phone numbers. Right now, everything goes to the same inbox

    Game Changer

    Reviewed 10 days ago

    This software has been a game changer for our guest follow-up! I am very good at ideas and implementation... not so much maintaining long term... so to have an automated system that feels personal has been amazing!!

    Pros

    I love how easy this software is to use and customize. It is also automatic, so once you have it set up it runs everything so smoothly.

    Cons

    I don't always get notifications to my phone... but it hasn't hindered the effectiveness, just my response time.

    Vendor response

    Natalee - This made our day! THANK YOU for taking the time to leave this amazing review. We appreciate it and we are so happy Text In Church has been a game changer for your guest follow-up!

    Incredibly Frustrating!!!!!

    Reviewed 4 years ago
    Pros

    we like the ability to text members. While beneficial, its not if we have to pay double the price

    Cons

    For us, their support is poorly lacking. Back in February, they double billed our credit cards for an annual fee, and now, 4 months later, after a dozen emails, and even more calls to our bank, this company tells me it may take another month before they can figure out how to issue us a credit for hundreds of dollars. My bank today called them an untrustworthy vendor. I've had it with this company!! Buyer Beware!!

    Vendor response

    Hi Deb, Thanks for the honest review. I'm really sorry for your frustrating experience. This was a very unusual circumstance though. Rather than requesting a refund you marked the charge as fraudulent. This initiated a review by your bank and your payment was immediately withdrawn from our account. Unfortunately, we were not able to refund your charge until your bank completed it's review....

    A necessity for church communication!

    Reviewed a year ago

    We use TIC to help people sign up for small groups, go through our discipleship program, sign up for baptism, and more. Their customer service is out of this world. We have had such a great experience with TIC!

    Pros

    It is simple to use as a tool to communicate with our congregation. Once you load all your people and numbers into TIC, you can put them into groups and categories to message for different reasons and events. It makes it so simple to message back and forth with them too. Not just send out a message but to have a conversation.

    Cons

    Sometimes it’s difficult when people change their cell numbers and we don’t know so then we continue messaging a new stranger ☺️ I think it can sometimes be confusing when TIC has to use different numbers to ensure the message sends out. It’s confusing to our members seeing different numbers they don’t recognize. Neither of these are TIC issues though.
