1. To sign up for a free trial, click HERE

2. Fill out the information requested and click "Register"

3. You will be brought to the verification page. You should have received an email to verify your email address, but if you need to make any changes or resend that email, you can do that on this page.

The Verification email looks like this. Click "Verify and continue" to verify your email address and continue the sign up process.

4. Next, you will be directed to this screen. Fill out your church's name, select your timezone, create your username and password, add your cell phone number and click "Start".

5. You will now have the choice of 3 options: Option A (sorry, this is no longer available), Option B (choose this if you have an invite code to use), and Option C (choose this if you do not have an invite code - you can enter in your Credit Card credentials instead **we will NOT charge your card during this free trial unless you purchase a plan or trial extension)

6. You will now see a screen that looks like this:

Every account goes through a audit to weed out the spammers (unfortunately a lot of people try and take advantage of free accounts). We appreciate your patience and understanding with this. To speed this process up, you can click "Verify now"

Enter in your cell phone number, and click "Verify":

7. Once approved, you will receive an email with a link to "Log in and Continue Testing"

8. This will bring you to our "Sender Settings" page. *Don't worry! You're almost done!

Here, you have 3 choices:

Option 1: "A brand new phone number I pick"
Recommended if you do not want to add your church's landline as a phone number to use on this account at this time (it can be added at anytime later too).

Option 2: "Both if possible (recommended)"
This is recommended if you would like to start the process of using your church's landline for texting (the process starts with a quick check to see if your church's landline is a candidate for this) and set up a new number to start using right away.

Option 3: "My existing organizations number"
Recommended if you only want to use your church's landline for texting on your account. We do still require you to have a working number on the account while completing the process of enabling your landline for texting so we can complete your account sign up. *Note, you can always remove this "extra" number from your account once your landline is up and running. Here is an article on how to remove that extra phone number.

9. Once you've selected the right option for your church, click the button below to continue:

10. You will now be on the screen to choose your virtual phone number to use with your account. *If you selected "Option 2 or 3", this process is still the same - once your virtual number is set up, you can start the process of setting up your landline.

Choose your country, Search by "number" (recommended), enter your local area code, Leave the "Match to" as "First Part of Number", choose either "local" or "toll free" depending on your needs, and click "Search".

11. This populates a list of available numbers you can choose from. Click on the number you want to use for your church (If you don't see any numbers, there may not be any available for your area code. Send us an online chat or email to [email protected] for help).

12. Once you have selected a number, scroll down for your call forwarding options. You can choose to forward calls to any number you'd like, or turn call forwarding off. These settings can also be changed at anytime. Click "Register" when done.

13. If you would like to send yourself a "test text", you can do that on this next screen, or choose "skip" to skip this test and go directly into your PastorsLine account.

14. You will now be directed into your PastorsLine account. Click HERE for an article to help get you started!
