Some have described the Ooma telephone communication system as “heavenly.” Despite such high praise, we think Ooma’s advanced telephone system is a practical choice for your church. Whether your church is large or small, it still needs to keep its administrative systems running smoothly. A flexible and advanced telephone system will help your church better address its business needs and communicate with its congregation.

The Ooma Office telephone system is customizable to meet the unique demands of your church. For example, calls can easily be transferred between extensions, and digital voicemail can be accessed from any location. Ring groups and multi-ring features can also be customized so you can be sure that a phone call will never go unanswered. Additionally, Ooma Office phone systems are scalable. Each account can support up to 20 users, and you can add them à la carte as your needs change.
It’s important for churches to properly greet and direct incoming calls, and we have seen how technology can help with some of the hustle and bustle of these tasks. Features like Ooma’s virtual receptionist have had a huge positive impact on organizations. This customizable tool offers prompts so calls are routed to the appropriate person or department. For example, calls about church groups can be directed to the organizer’s extension without having to pass through the business office.
The virtual receptionist is like adding another employee, says Jonathan Arndt, general manager of Colburn Construction, Inc. I’m always confident that calls are routed to the right people.
The system can also be customized to provide information updates and answers to frequently asked questions. We have seen churches set up a message that provides address information, service times and even weather updates for events affected by snowstorms.
We know how important it is to keep costs low. That’s why we’re delighted to share that Ooma’s telephone system runs on technology that routes phone calls over the Internet rather than through telephone lines or cell phone towers. This advanced technology, called VoIP (or voice over IP), functions at a lower cost than traditional phone systems, and we pass along those savings to our customers.
Monthly costs are just $19.95 for each user, and included with your service is unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada. After we ran the numbers, your total savings by choosing Ooma over a traditional phone service could be $6,185.44 over three years.
If you’re just starting with Ooma Office, there is a one-time hardware cost of $199.99 (now with a $50 discount off the regular price). This includes one base station and two Ooma Linx wireless phone extensions.
If you’re calling internationally, Ooma has much lower rates than traditional phone systems. For example, if you’re calling the Vatican to discuss the church’s policy on gluten-free bread, dialing rates with Ooma are just 2.7 cents per minute to call Vatican City or landlines in Italy. Calling Italian cell phones with Ooma is priced at 14.9 cents per minute. Traditional telephone providers like Verizon charge 55 times as much as Ooma, with their standard call rates to Vatican City and Italy costing $1.49 per minute to landlines and $1.69 per minute to mobile phones.
