Text your entire church

Text your entire church

Shift to one-on-one conversations

  • Respond to incoming texts from your inbox, where one-on-one conversations happen with your people. 

  • Let your team manage separate conversations in your shared inbox. Or use subaccounts to give other ministries or campuses their own separate inboxes and numbers.

Start video texting

  • Record and send videos in Clearstream. Film a welcome for first-time guests, an encouraging devotional, or weekly announcements from the pastor.

  • Record in portrait or landscape mode, upload previously recorded videos, and save them in a video library.

Create text-to-join keywords

  • Create keywords for different use cases or ministries with a 10-digit number or dedicated short code.

  • Or, use a single keyword for your entire church with keyword menus. Give people the option of what information they'd like based on a menu. Each menu choice can then trigger it's own text auto-response or automated workflow.

Engage with live polls

  • Actively involve your church with a live poll. Results can be shown in real time, on screen as people respond.

  • Display a call-to-action during service and encourage people to participate in your poll through a keyword. Or just send your poll through a mass text.

Segment with subaccounts

  • Set up multiple accounts under your main Clearstream account for different ministries or campuses, and manage their credit usage from within your master account.

  • Each subaccount has their own users, inbox, local 10-digit number, lists, and integrations.

Use our native, user-friendly mobile apps

  • Send out last minute reminders, get push notifications for incoming texts and keywords, and manage your inbox with our native iOS and Android apps.
