Coldlytics is the #1 Church focused lead list provider on the market. Look no further for your next list of Church leads, whether it's for cold emailing, direct mail, or cold calling.

Below is a step-by-step guide showing you how to source a list of church leads from Coldlytics.

If you’ve been searching for churches or pastors, you likely came across several types of churches. While other sources would group all of these together you can get more specific with Coldlytics.

Using the additional notes section, you can request inclusions and exclusions. An example of this would be “Include churches that mention “baptist” on their website.” or “Exclude companies that mention “temple” on their website.”

If you’re reading this now, there’s a good chance this isn’t the first list you’ve tried to build a list. Perhaps you’ve tried something like D7 Lead Finder or Seamless AI. What we’ve experienced with other lead providers is that the data is often incomplete, generic emails like info@ or church@ or just plain incorrect altogether. This is why we created Coldlytics.

How does Coldlytics build lists of church leads?

We begin our church list by pulling data from Google Business Profiles, or GBPs. What’s great about Google Business Profiles is that even if the church hasn’t created one for their gathering place, Google will typically generate one for them.

From here we clean up the data by running deduplication, cleansing and normalization processes. This helps ensure that the data is in a clean, usable format as we continue to the next step with contact enrichment.

Human research is the secret sauce of Coldlytics. While you can crawl the web for general information on churches, we’ve found the best way to find a pastor’s email address and phone number is by conducting manual human research.

Once we’ve compiled the contact information into a single source we send the list off to our email validation partner, Zerobounce. Their job is to validate as many of the emails as possible to ensure you don’t have any bounces.

The best part? We have a bounce-free guarantee. You’ll never pay for a bounced contact again.

Within 24 hours we will send a link to your list to you via email - easy as that!

How to build your email list of churches or pastors

The Coldlytics signup screen.

Step 2: Start a new task using Coldlytics and Google Maps

Once signed up, click the "New Task" button. Specify how many contacts you want to source then head over to Google Maps.

Search Google Maps for "Churches in [location]" or "Mosques in [location]" (the same goes for any other religion or denomination), where [location] can be a specific city, state, or even country. Get as granular as you want here, but we'd recommend sticking to geographies with a combined population of over 20k.

Copy and paste the Google Maps URL from your browser address bar into Coldlytics.

Repeat this step as many times as you wish. For example, if you want to source churches in multiple cities or specific states.
Example: Sourcing lawyers in Illinois via Google Maps and Coldlytics.

Step 3: Consider using advanced filters

Coldlytics enables you to refine your list by metrics such as…

  • Whether they are advertising on Facebook
  • Whether they are advertising on Google
  • Company Revenue
  • Company Headcount
  • Company Founding Date
Advanced filters on Coldlytics - not to be found elsewhere!

Step 4: Enter Additional Notes

Every task you submit is triaged by a human, before being assigned to our research team. Use the "Additional Notes" section to optionally provide context to your targeting requirements.

You can also use this section to specify positive or negative keywords to look for on each church's website. This can be helpful to hone in on specialities or other important aspects of their business.

For example: Only include churches that mention "Baptist" on their website.
Enter your additional notes in this box.

Step 5: Define Data Points

Think of a data point as a column in the final spreadsheet. Your list will always include the following data points for each contact we provide:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Company Name
  • Job Title
  • Email Address
  • Company Website
We always provide direct email addresses, rather than generic emails such as sales@, info@, contact@, etc.

Additionally, you can request any of the following data points. Coldlytics provides the most extensive set of data points in the industry, enabling you to build a comprehensive picture of every single prospect before you even begin your outreach.

  • LinkedIn Profile URL
    The personal LinkedIn profile of the contact in question.
  • Address
    Split into components - first line, city, state, zip.
  • Phone Number
    The main business/switchboard phone.
  • Direct Dial
    The direct phone number (usually cell) for each contact. This costs an additional credit per contact provided.
  • Google Review Count & Score
  • Google My Business (GMB) Profile URL
    Also whether it's been claimed by the business.
  • Company Social Profiles
    Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.
  • Ad Pixels
    Whether the business has a Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, or TikTok ad pixel installed. When these are present we can assume that they are currently running, or have ran ads in the past.
  • Google Analytics
    Whether the business uses Google Analytics.
  • E-commerce
    Whether the business uses e-commerce technologies such as Shopify or Klaviyo.
  • Wordpress
