How Pastors are using PastorsLine to engage with members and guests
If you are caring for others like shepherds care for their flocks, you ARE symbolically a “Pastor”, and this tool is for you. Whether you are a ‘Swiss knife’ leader who has to do it all or someone who has a large team that helps, you might be experiencing symptoms identified in a recent study of Pastors — symptoms such as:
Working over 55 hours a week
Observing that you are spiritually undernourished
Having a distance from your family
But still honored to be a Pastor
Using texting and a cloud-based solution can help. This AND strategy is one of the most effective ways that Pastors are able to do more in less time, staying connected to their audience’s needs while creating some insulation between their own spaces and those of their audience.
What You'll Learn
Sermon Attendance Booster
Find out how to use texting before, during and after your sermon to increase interest, raise your attendance and improve your follow-up.
Intensify your discipleship process
Reduce the percentages of guests falling through the cracks and church member non-attendance, so more of your ministry take those next steps toward Christ.
Maximize your Time
Scheduled messages and autoresponders mean that you can set things up once, and they will run on their own...freeing you up to attend to other duties.
Expand your connections
There’s always a relevant reason to text your congregation. We give you practical suggestions which will make your congregants feel more connected to you and each other.
Every ‘how to’ comes with copy and paste swipe texts, so you can start this weekend...or even before.
Overall, texts are the most opened, fastest read and most responded to type of communication. When you think about your audience’s needs like Jesus did, texting becomes the preferred way to reach out and connect.
