700 new donors to your church in one week?
Think that’s crazy? Think again.
Cross Point Church, one of the fastest growing churches in the Southeast, recently utilized a new text-to-give platform called Textify Mobile with resounding success.
Senior Pastor Pete Wilson walked churchgoers through the simple steps for using Textify one Sunday morning. Within minutes, people were sending their tithes and offerings to the church with a quick text message. Seven hundred of those who gave that Sunday were first-time givers.
Many ministries may be familiar with text-to-give, but not many are actually using it and many make it more difficult than it has to be.
In the past text giving was done through the phone carriers. The gift was limited to only $10, there were heavy processing fees and it took several months to received payment from the carriers. Also donor information was never shared with the non-profit, so cultivation was impossible. Such option works for massive relief efforts during a nationally televised program, but not for much else.
The new version of text giving is a no brainer for churches and ministries. The cost of the service is nominal, there are no longer amount restrictions, extra fees—other than the usual credit card processing fee—and the donor information belongs to you.
