Effective church communication re-enforces the church relationship, encourages people in the week, communicates valuable information and connects people to the vision the church casts. Email is a powerful way to easily communicate with specific ministry groups within the church to the church as a whole. Ekklesia gives people the power to easily (and with little technological knowledge) create email campaigns and send it to hundred (or thousands) of people. The challenge for many churches as they mature is that they end up having multiple databases of visitors and members of their congregation.

Challenge #1 Churches that use third party applications run a high risk of having their emails filtered as SPAM by filters. Popular 3rd party email campaign providers also send out emails for thousands of other organizations that mean the 3rd party providers servers are blocked by many ISP's.
Challenge #2 Many churches end up with separate email databases of users, members directories and other databases that begin to create more problems than they solve. When a congregant changes their contact information, churches end up with multiple sets of contact information and end up unsure of which is the correct data.
Churches can send emails directly from the CMS. Effective church communication re-enforces the church relationship, encourages people during the week, communicates valuable information, and connects people to the vision of the church. A church will be able to easily (and with little technological knowledge) create HTML email campaigns and send them to hundreds (or thousands) of people. These emails can be sent to specific ministry groups within the church or to the church as a whole.
