Sync all of your CCB contacts, groups and saved searches into your MailChimp account in 3 easy steps.

Set it and forget it.

Sync Groups

You can select groups from one or more CCB campuses and sync those to an existing MailChimp list or create a new list per group name.

Sync Saved Searches

In addition to syncing groups from multiple campuses, you will be able to sync saved searches. Perfect way to create a dynamic list or group on MailChimp that meets your criteria.

Manual and Automatic

You will be able to manually sync your groups and saved searches in addition to automatic syncing. Great option to have full control over how your data is displayed.

How it works?

You will be able to sync your Church Community Builder (CCB) account with Mailchimp (MC).
This is currently a one-way sync from CCB to MC.
😀🙋 🙋 Two-way syncing is now available for ALL accounts. 🙌 🙌 😀
You will be able to choose which campuses, groups, or saved searches you need to import. We never store any of your contacts within our platform.

So why CCBChimp?

Hi CCB User,

CCBChimp is an approved 3rd party app to sync CCB to MailChimp.

If you are already using MailChimp, then you will just have the additional cost of CCBChimp—starts at $7/m but we recommend the $17/m plan.

https://ccbchimp.com/#pricing

If you are not yet using MailChimp, adding MailChimp might be an additional cost. We say might because the MailChimp free tier is impressive, offering 2000 subscribers and 12k emails per month. If that isn’t enough, they offer a 15% discount for non-profits.

You can use this calculator to estimate cost.

Why should I use CCBChimp when CCB offers a mailing feature?

CCB offers an integrated Mailing feature which many CCB users enjoy. If you are looking at CCBChimp, you would fall into 1 of 2 groups of CCB users:

1. You are already using MailChimp and CCB.

  • You can now save time, eliminate human errors and keep your databases updated while you sleep. We sync both ways to help minimize administrative work.
  • Since 2017, MailChimp automation module is free to all users. Now you can fully automate your email campaigns. Click me for example.

2. You are using or looking into CCB but heard about a nicer way to send e-newsletters.

  • Get all the power data MailChimp analytics.
  • Benefit from tested, beautifully designed, email templates.
  • Enjoy the “easy-to-look like a rock-star” MailChimp user interface.
  • Reap the benefits from high email deliverability by the top e-newsletter system in the world for small to medium-sized entities.

So where does this leave the CCB Mail Merge feature?

CCB provides a native option that will continue to be used by many CCB users. Even our CCBChimp users might still use the Mail Merge feature. They are doing an AND strategy.

Quick internal messages to staff or small groups? They might use the Mail Merge feature. For broadcasts or emails to guests, special campaigns and bigger events, they opt to use MailChimp. A few use only MailChimp.

The options are yours. MailChimp can be free or affordable and CCBChimp is priced with churches in mind.

If you are looking for a solution that connects CCB to MailChimp and a better way to send beautifully designed emails with tons and tons of data analytics, then using MailChimp through CCBChimp can be a great option for you.

Hmm, why doesn’t CCB itself provide this integration for its users?

We get it. You are already paying hundreds of dollars for your CCB ChMS software. Ideally, it should take care of all your needs. We believe, at the core, it does. However, expecting CCB to be a jack of all trades will make them a master at none. It’s why their vendor program is so intensive. It allows vendors like us to focus on specific extensions of CCB and be great at it. It allows us to better support the extension and allows CCB to focus on innovating the core product.

Remember, software like CCB is the engine of your church workflow. Tech and needs change and they need to respond. Having a great engine can then allow us to provide some accessories to allow you to create a synergistic digital strategy - ensuring your members and visitors don’t ultimately fall through the cracks.

Besides, we offer a fixed rate, economical price that adds up to less than a few cents per day. We share the cost of development with you and many others. We will not recoup our costs until 2020. And we are ok with that. We hope this solution adds value and is useful to helping you reach more people for Christ.

How does syncing work and which plan is right for me?

Two-way syncing is available for all three plans. However, the way in which that syncing is done is reflected in the pricing.

There are two ways to sync your information between CCBChimp, CCB and MailChimp: manual syncing and automatic syncing.

Manual syncing means that you login to CCBChimp and actually click on the button that says “Sync Now”. If you don’t have time to do this or forget and changes have been made to your contact lists, your next email won’t be sent to the most updated version of your list(s). You can manually sync your data whenever you want and as often as you want. Unlimited manual syncing is available in all three plans.

Automatic syncing is when we do the work for you. On the Med plan, the CCBChimp system automatically syncs your data with CCB and MailChimp once a day. On the Pro plan, we do it twice a day. If you have either the Med or Pro plan, you can still manually sync whenever, but you don’t have to worry about it because we are taking care of it for you.

Another difference is in the access to custom fields. The CCBChimp platform captures a lot of data. In the Starter plan, you have access to only part of that data: first name, last name, and birth date. In the Med and Pro plans, you also have access to: salutation (greeting), suffix (Jr., etc.), gender and marital status.

And here's a little more information on how our syncing works between both accounts.

https://ccbchimp.com/2way-improvement/

MailChimp: Choosing how to sync?

You can choose to sync the required CCB groups to one single MailChimp list. Or sync the groups to multiple lists. It's very flexible. Each may impact your MC cost. You can weigh the pros and cons. Our costs are flat rates per month.

MailChimp treats all the lists in your account separately, and your Monthly Plan billing is based on your total subscriber count across all your lists. It can be more costly to maintain multiple lists, and you may run into compliance issues if bounced addresses are removed from one list in your account but still exist in the subscribed section of another.

If you have duplicate subscribers across different lists, consider combining your lists into a master list and using groups to organize your subscribers. This can simplify your list management and may reduce the cost of your monthly bill. However, if someone opts out of a specific email that you sent to a group, they will be opted out of the entire list.

Sending to an entire list or specific groups per list are both achievable in MailChimp. It's the same process but instead of selecting the LIST you click to select a group(s) or segment(s).

What is the difference between your three CCBChimp plans?

Two-way syncing is available for all three plans. However, the way in which that syncing is done is reflected in the pricing.

There are two ways to sync your information between PastorsLine (PL), CCB, and MailChimp: manual syncing and automatic syncing.

Manual syncing means that you login to PL and actually click on the button that says “Sync Now”. If you don’t have time to do this or forget and changes have been made to your contact lists, your next email won’t be sent to the most updated version. You can manually sync your data whenever you want and as often as you want. Unlimited manual syncing is available in all three plans.

Automatic syncing is when we do the work for you. On the Med plan, the PL system automatically syncs your data with CCB and MailChimp once a day. On the Pro plan, we do it twice a day. If you have the Med and Pro plans, you can still manually sync whenever, but you don’t have to worry about it because we are taking care of it for you.

In the Med and Pro plans, you also have access to: salutation (greeting), suffix (Jr., etc.), gender, and marital status.

For the best of both worlds, we recommend the Med plan.

The functionality inside of CCBChimp will allow Churches to take their email marketing to a whole new level! - Bryce Washum, Freedom Church

This system is super easy to use! Very happy with it already. - Katie

That was easy! I love the red countdown timer - prevents me from duplicating my work or the work of a colleague (if we're doing this as a team). I love that you let me assign which group goes where on a case-by-case basis. - Sarah

...I just spoke with CCB yesterday and they mentioned that you've been very quick to turn around features. Glad to hear. - Redemption Church

Thrilled with your service by the way. Takes the headache out of my job. - Evan
