Are you looking for an alternative to Text In Church? Looking for a saas tool for seamless communication with your church that doesn't cost more than it's worth?
This article will show you why Text In Church may not be the best church texting service for your congregation. You'll see why over 10,000 churches have trusted ChurchTrac with their church mass texting and emailing needs!
In Summary: The main difference between Text in Church and ChurchTrac is 1) cost and 2) features. Let's explore these differences further!
Here's a breakdown of what the typical church can expect to pay based on its size for both platforms:
|Text In Church

|Med Church (under 500 names)
|Large Church (over 500 names)
(These prices are based on a 3-year average including features like email, texting, and keywords)
Text in Church is a powerful communication tool that makes it simple to stay in touch with members and attendees. Church leaders can automate sending text messages to church members, saving time in their church communication strategy. And the fact that they allow unlimited users is a huge plus.
But here's the problem: Text In Church cannot...
Your church needs more than a tool for just texting and emailing. While mass texting is a must for churches, it shouldn't have to come at such a high price. It's best if your church can have a mass texting and emailing tool that is fully included within your church management software.
If your church simply needs a communication tool, not a church management solution that helps you manage your directory, plan events, and balance your budget, then Text In Church is a good resource. However, if you want a program that can help you minister to your flock, know your attendance trends, do online giving, and other church management needs, Text In Church will fall short. You will need a cloud-based church management system, like ChurchTrac, to handle your ministry needs.
There are two ways you can send a text in ChurchTrac: Using our built-in SMS messaging or purchasing a phone number through our Twilio SMS integration.
You can send your entire church a text message the moment you import your church directory - no integration is required.
You also get an allotment of FREE texts every month. Most churches that use ChurchTrac Messaging don't go over their free texts per month.
But the next option is even better...
Churches can purchase a phone number through Twilio and connect it to ChurchTrac with our integration.
A Twilio integration gives you even more functionality! You get access to two-way texting for members to reply back, unlimited customizable keywords, and more! The best part? You can use Twilio for FREE. Learn more here.
ChurchTrac is such a robust church management software, it's almost unfair to compare the feature list with Text In Church!

Also, since ChurchTrac costs less, you can use the money you save to focus on what matters.
