You would think that something like that is solely within the church culture and probably does not need to be talked about elsewhere in the technology or news community, you’d be wrong. Bloomberg Business covered this explosion of eGiving, exclusively mentioning the Tithe.ly app.
There has been a lot of banter about start-ups, unicorns, and being the next Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg in the secular tech community. So as technology integrates with the Church more and more, it has started to become normal that tech services for churches are taking this start-up route. I’ve heard on at least two different top tech podcasts (don’t ask me to cite the episodes, I’ve spent an hour doing the research and cannot find them) that specifically highlight “Angel investors” and others intentionally putting money into faith-based tech start-ups.
So Bloomberg Business highlighting a whole portion of technology is giving more evidence that these services are here to stay and going to be the norm.
Churches using tithing apps report they see more donations, more often, from more people.
What do you think in general about eGiving?
Are there too many options or not the perfect solution out there?
And what about how church technology services are mimicking the start-up model: will it work elsewhere too?
