Email service and text messaging for churches.

Broadcast your news using your


right from your mobile phone

Send an email to your church members.

Send an email in minutes.

When time is of the essence, send an email message quickly from your desktop or mobile device to your entire directory — or selected group(s) within your directory — without having to look up a single email address. Simply enter a subject and message, select members and send.

Filter and send by groups.

Add individuals or families to a group and send email messages to just that group. Perfect for when you need to quickly communicate to just a few key members and not your entire directory.

Send unlimited emails with your paid membership.

Send as many email messages as you'd like for no additional charge. The only requirement is that your church has an active membership with Instant Church Directory. You will not have access to this feature during your FREE trial.

We take care of the sending for you.

All of our email messages are completely advertisement-free and look like they are coming directly from you and your church. Send an email message right now or schedule it for a later date — either way, we send the email for you, ensuring your emails are always in CAN-SPAM compliance.
