Do More Than Just Pass The Plate - Infographic

Does your church or ministry provide online giving? Perhaps you do in some way, yet is it easy to access and use? Are you encouraging people to utilize it? Many organizations aren't fully utilizing online giving and all of it's capabilities (i.e. mobile, access to giving history).

If your organization is simply only passing the offering plate and not providing for online giving then you are missing out.

Here are three key points from the infographic below:
  • Outside of the church, Americans are writing less checks and paying bills online more.
  • With online giving, you can reach this generation of checkless and paperless people as well as set up automatic, recurring donations.
  • Only 14% of Protestant churches in the U.S. offer online giving, but churches with online giving actually earn more money.



My question about this is what impact does it have on the idea of giving as an act of worship? It certainly is convenient but I'm not sure making giving more convenient is really best for the spiritual development of the congregation. It's hard to imagine that having my tithe become just another recurring monthly payment like netflix wouldn't detract from it as an act of worship to God in some way.

It’s hard to sort the good from the bad sometimes, but I think you’ve nailed it. You write very well which is amazing. I really impressed by your post.
