Text your entire church

Send mass texts with links, pictures, polls, and emojis. Use other languages. Include embedded notes, or personalize your message with custom data fields. Send videos. Schedule texts or set up recurring messages.

Send texts from a local, 10-digit number or lease a 5-digit short code. Both options are available with any plan.

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.

Follow up with visitors

Visitors can use a keyword or signup form to fill out a digital connect card, join an automated workflow, and be synced to your church management database — all within seconds.

Schedule a series of texts inviting guests back for another service or directing them to a next steps class.

Follow-up with Visitor Artwork

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 workflow branches. Send different texts based on conditions like "primary campus" or "new subscriber." There are tons of possibilities here.

A text menu when someone texts the keyword "earlychurch." Options are I'm new, Volunteer, Giving, and Prayer

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. 

Our mobile apps are perfect for managing your text communication Sunday morning or when you're driving. J/k, don't do that.
