Welcome to Gloo! Gloo is a new kind of outreach platform designed to help your church reach your city in a way that saves you time, activates your team, and increases your impact. Our goal is to help your church serve more new people, and see more lives changed – each week.

The Gloo platform is packed with features to help you do this. We currently have two different types of accounts- free and premium. With a free account you’ll be able to:

  • Send and receive unlimited text messages with your congregation, using features like Broadcast text blasts, customizable Keywords, devotional Series, and Prayer Request gathering.

  • Access valuable resources through our partnership with the He Gets Us Campaign.

  • Get real insight into your people's wellbeing with our expertly curated Assessments.

In addition to all of these free features, a premium account will also allow you to:

  • Engage with people in your community looking for help and connection online through our Explorer Connections Program- online seekers in your area are delivered directly into your account.

  • Connect to a free Barna Access Plus account to take advantage of their powerful data-driven insights.

Premium Account Pricing

The price of a Premium Gloo account scales with the average weekly attendance of your church. We currently offer 3 plans- small, medium and large.

Common Questions

Explorer Connections

How many connections will I get in a week?

The number of responses may vary depending on how many individuals in your area ask to connect. We can’t guarantee a specific number of connections, but we will send as many your way as possible.

If I pause Explorers, does it pause payment?

No. If you choose to take a break from receiving Explorers, you will still have access to your Gloo account to use messaging tools, templates, reports, and more. Billing for your Explorer Connections subscription will continue.

Can more than one staff member get the connection messages?

Yes. After confirming your church’s participation, you may add additional staff members to your account to receive the responses. Only one primary contact is required to start receiving connection messages from Explorers.
