How do you usually make offerings to your church? Do you stop by an ATM on the way to service so that you can place cash in the offering plate? Perhaps you write a check or donate through your church’s website.
No matter what method you currently use to give, a mobile giving app is easier. Here’s why.
The Speed and Convenience of Mobile
According to Pew Internet Research:
90% of American adults own a mobile phone
29% of cell phone owners say they “can’t imagine living without” their mobile phone
63% of adult cell owners use their phones to access the Internet
Consider for a moment why so many people carry mobile phones in the first place. Think about how life is different now than it was many years ago. Back then, a person had to be tied down to a specific location in order to use a phone. Plus, those vintage devices did one thing and one thing only: make calls.
Today’s devices can do so much more, from banking to looking up information to getting directions. Because they add so much convenience to our daily lives, most of us keep our phones nearby at all times. Why shouldn’t that convenience translate to church? If we can already use our phones for just about everything else, we should be able to use them for church giving, too. With a mobile giving app, we now can.
On the Spot Giving Anywhere, Anytime
Regardless of your current location or the time of day, a mobile giving app enables you to give on the spot. Have you ever spent a Sunday morning stuck at home with the flu? What about those icy cold winter days when you get snowed in and can’t make it to service? Did you ever forget to bring cash or checks with you to church, and not think about it again until you’re getting ready for bed later that night?
Any of these circumstances would normally stop you from giving. But using a mobile giving app, you can simply pull out your phone and make an offering — anytime, anywhere.
