You have heard that a church giving app would be a great addition to your ministry. But you may not know just how important this technology upgrade really is. If you want to see church giving increase among your parishioners, you need to look into accepting mobile donations. Here’s why.
No Church Giving App Means Less Giving
Have you noticed how few people carry cash these days? Studies show that 43% of people go a week at a time without ever using cash. Even fewer people carry a check book. Despite this, over 90% of all church donations come from cash and checks. If you are relying on cash and checks to fill up your offering plate, your churchgoers can’t live up to their full giving potential. Imagine how much your church giving would grow if you accepted other forms of payment.
If someone doesn’t have any cash, they can’t give — even if they feel moved to do so. The best way to fix this issue is to begin using a church giving app. By doing so, those members who could not give before can suddenly make church offerings straight from their phone. Every parishioner who wants to give will be able to give.
Know Which Members Give Regularly
When you pass the offering plate and gather cash from your members, you have no clear way to keep track of who is giving. Who has time to jot down the name of every person who puts something in the plate? You are not alone in this predicament. In fact, only 10% of pastors know how much churchgoers give and who in the church is tithing.
Unfortunately, you are missing out on some valuable information about your congregation. People who give regularly are more committed to your church, and they are often interested in getting more involved with the organization.
If you accept mobile donations using a church giving app, you can actually see who gave to your church, how much they felt moved to give, and which members give on a regular basis. That information can go a long way.No Fields Found.
