Building community with friends and family can be one of the most beautiful pictures of God's love for us. It's actually at the heart of why we started Text In Church - we wanted to help pastors build authentic relationships with their church family and guests.
You can probably picture the faces of new people who walked in the door as a guest and are now a part of your congregation, and enjoying community and fellowship.
You can also probably picture some of the faces that walked in your church doors for the first time, left and never came back. And that hurts. Especially when you know you wanted to reach out more but maybe you just didn't have the time, energy, or simply their contact information.
The Co-founder of Text In Church, Tyler Smith, set out to help his brother’s church plant in California. They had guests coming through the door, but they couldn’t find a way to be consistent in following up with them. Unfortunately, many of them slipped through the cracks.
Tyler built a tool for his brother to use, and other churches asked what their church was doing to grow so quickly. Within a couple months, over one hundred churches were using his platform.
Tyler decided to quit his job and go into full time church communication ministry! Our platform has come a long way since then. And... it's because of church leaders (like you). You've shared ideas, strategies & suggestions and we've listened.
We are so thankful for the feedback we have gotten to make Text In Church what it is today. We are constantly learning and improving how we can better serve churches like you!
Text in Church is the best way for us to get a message out to the church that we want to make sure everyone sees.
We love that we can follow up with people with out a ton of work! This makes it so that as we get bigger we can still have a personal message to people! We also love that when things happen we can send out info to our entire church super easy!
Text in Church has been a great tool for maximizing our ability to connect with guests at New Life.
I was hesitant - thinking our church was not big enough for this yet, but I was wrong. Text in Church has helped us build our connections with new people, saved us time with automated work flows, and it has been way more effective than the plain emails we were using.
Overall Text In Church is invaluable to Elevate and I would recommend it to any church, of any size, regardless of their culture, demographic, or existing systems they have in place.
We recommend them to every church we work with. Such a powerful service that’s easy to use and easy on the budget.
