Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of having a Ministry Consultant?

A Ministry Consultant will provide your church admin dedicated access to an individual who specializes in helping you most effectively implement texting into the fabric of your church. Whether you are just starting with onboarding or launching a completely new text initiative, a Ministry Consultant will help you efficiently carry out your plan.

How long does account onboarding typically take?

TRY & GROW plans will operate on a shared short code and can be setup in 1-3 business days.

PARTNER plans will require a 30-45 day runway in order to provision your dedicated short code, as well as execute the implementation process. In the meantime, you can begin texting from a shared short code if you have an immediate need.

What makes Ministry By Text different from the other church texting software available?

When you join the Ministry By Text family, you will have access to an experienced Ministry Consultant, a proven success plan, and a road-map for your church’s custom implementation.

What happens if I go over my text message limit for the month?

Every message over the limit on your package will be charged an overage fee based on your chosen plan.

Can I place a limit on the amount of messages that I can go over?

Yes! No surprise spending. You set the budget and our software manages the rest.

Why do I want a dedicated short code?

A Dedicated Short Code allows you to have a unique 5 digit code to create keywords, pass messages, and more without having to share any content space with other organizations.

Cell-phone carriers prefer this method for text marketing and do not have daily delivery limitations long-codes will. This is the preferred method for compliant large volume texting by mobile carriers.
