What is UMConnect?
The United Methodist Church now has a new way to reach people locally and globally – using today’s most commonly available form of communication…the text message, also known as SMS.
Through a unique collaboration called "UMConnect,"' United Methodist Communications and TextIt have partnered to provide group messaging to communicate throughout the world.
UMConnect allows church leaders to build their own mobile databases, easily reaching those who may not have access to internet and email, or those who prefer text messages. Send important news and updates quickly, and even automate replies to simplify correspondence among large groups. In addition to texting, UMConnect also offers Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and the ability to connect with audiences via Twitter and Facebook Messenger.
