Integrating PastorsLine and Breeze ChMS gives your church improved 2-way text and voice communication and better relationships with your church members and first-time guests. This integration also reduces your workload. For example:
You have already created contacts and groups on Breeze. You have already captured important data. Why do it all over again? Just integrate with PastorsLine and enjoy the fruits of your previous labors.
Communicate easily with your event volunteers before, during, and after your service.
How to set up the integration
