Create a Text Campaign

Text campaigns are helpful for communicating with your congregants without giving out your personal phone number.

  • You must be a Growth Method administrator or a Campaign Admin or Worker to do this.
  • You must have set up at least one campaign number to do this.
Create a text campaign when you want to contact your entire congregation or just a segment of your congregants and make it feel personal. For example, send an invitation to your organization's next big welcome event to your those listed in your new congregants track in Growth Method, or send a prayer request to your entire congregation. These texts allow you to contact many of your congregants at once, saving you time from contacting them each one at a time, but your congregants feel like you're personally following up with them one-on-one.
