This is important because research also shows that church members rarely give outside of weekly worship services. You do not have to be an expert in finance or economics to realize that the tradition offering plate limits their ability to give.
The point is that the way people pay for things is changing. In fact, it’s changing more rapidly than most church leaders realize. Reevaluating how your church receives donations is inevitable because there is going to be a time in the near future when most of your congregation will not carry cash or checks. However, the negative impact of these trends are likely already impacting your church.
Think of it this way, it’s very possible that 33% of your church members no longer carry cash or check. If this is true, then you’re essentially putting up a barrier for those people from giving in worship. It’s not that they do not want to give, it’s that they can’t; at least not at weekend services.
So how can your church adapt? How can your church invite people who do not carry cash or checks into this area of worship?
Step #1: Sign up for PayPal, First American or another “processor” so that you can accept credit cards, debit cards, etc. These companies provide your members and your church with financial security, they help members set up recurring transactions, and their costs are fairly minimal.
Step #2: Get a church app such as SmartChurch.com. In the last two years, church apps have become more utilized because of their simplicity and convenience (they’re right on your phone) than websites. An app is one simple click away and does not require a lot of extra effort the way a website often does.
Step #3: Invite people at every church gathering to give using your new church app. This expands the number of opportunities people can easily give to your church. Instead of only giving at weekly services, they can now give at Bible Study, at a conference, or simply whenever the need comes to mind. Their ability to give is always with them and just a click away.
