Christian Online Giving: Funding The 21st Century Ministry

Putting a check in the offering plate or mailing one to a ministry has become part of the weekly and monthly routine for modern day Christians. The idea of moving to online giving or paperless giving like so many bills these days is foreign to many church based programs. This distrust of modern technology is no different from the caution towards checks when they first became popular in the 1950’s. Moving from “old-fashioned” giving to new fangled technology can increase the giver base and grow a ministry like never before.

While Christians are called to be in the world and not of the world, it is still good to use the things of the world for Christ’s purpose. After all computers are just another of God’s creations. Failing to take advantage of new technology could be detrimental to the effectiveness of a ministry; this consequence is completely avoidable with the help of Egiving.com. This unique ministry stems from years of serving the Lord and furthering Christ’s Kingdom. Thus, the outlook is uniquely Christian and based in Biblical truth.

Egiving.com looks to explain the ins and outs of online giving while facilitating open relationships in the Lord. They have a staff that is knowledgeable and proficient in the use of EFTs. Safety and security for the church or parachurch and their givers are top priority. Through their extensive capabilities and open mind, they hope to assuage the commonly encountered misunderstandings about online giving.

Egiving.com is located in Mount Vernon, Washington. George Eusterman, the founder, enjoys personally visiting every church interested within driving distance, but do not worry if you are too far away. This is, after all, the century of webinars and conference calls. George’s goal with these initial meetings is to really get into the ministry and understand where it is coming from and where they can help. Gathering this information allows the Egiving.com staff to form the financial framework which is most beneficial for that particular ministry. Additionally, this will give them a chance to meet the people in the ministry and facilitate close working relationships with them.

Once the financial structure has been decided upon, Egiving.com offers excellent instructions on how to use it most effectively. The goal is to free up as many paid or volunteer individuals from fundraising and re-evaluating a frustrating budget for other ventures. Ministry staff will then be freed to minister to people in more effective ways now instead of worrying about bringing in the necessary funding for the ministry’s operations all the time. Egiving.com has found that 95% of people who sign up for electronic recurring giving still give that same way 5 years down the road. Hopefully this trend will catch on and ministries will become more cost and Christ effective.
