Church Communication Tools

Tailored church communications, effortless delivery

By engaging through multiple communication channels—apps, texting, automated alerts, and scheduled notifications—your message will always be received.


"We wanted to make it easy for attendees to get the information they needed. The push notifications allowed us to communicate with people even if they were not in the building."

Cristian Garcia, Christ Fellowship

 FAQs about
Church Communication Tools

Is there a per-message fee when communicating with my church?

No—we want to provide you with powerful tools that empower you to communicate freely with your community. We offer bulk text messaging with no extra fees, so you can increase your reach and connect with more church members.

What’s the difference between texts and rich push notifications?

Text messages don’t require an app to be installed. They have limitations on the number of available characters per message, and don’t generate consistent metrics for reporting. On the other hand, rich push notifications are dynamic messages delivered straight from your church app, and offer a much more engaging experience. Rich push notifications can include images, links, surveys, polls, and more.  Additionally, messages sent through your app will generate insights on what communications are working, so you can make informed decisions to better nurture your people.

My church wants to send letters—is that possible with Pushpay?

Yes! Pushpay’s church communication tools are designed to support whatever form of connection that’ll best resonate with your community. Labels can easily be created using our mail merge capabilities, and end-of-year giving statements can be sent by mail for those donors who prefer a paper copy.

Does Pushpay support messaging between groups or leaders?

Our texting services facilitate messaging within small groups, as well as between leaders in your church.  These conversations can occur within the LEAD app for leaders, online, or in the app for groups.
