Giving is a integral part of every church. Outside of personal, one-on-one evangelism, it takes money to make ministry happen. While tithes and offerings are important, I’ve always been passionate about keeping the “big ask” on Sundays from being awkward. One of the best ways to keep things from feeling weird is by providing options for givers outside of the traditional collection plate. By providing online giving terminals on your website or even giving kiosks in your lobby, you meet the needs of those who don’t regularly carry cash or checks.
However, the best giving method that I’ve seen comes through a new service called Kindrid. It allows your congregation to give to your ministry via text messaging. Speaking as a millennial (the champions of awkwardness), I can tell you that this is not only convenient for my generation, but also feels much less obtrusive than a plate/bucket being passed down the row. As we move forward into a world where individuals rarely carry cash, but never leave home without their iPhone, this is a route your church should probably consider.
