Churches use tithes for the Lord's plans at church. We acknowledge tithes as specific amounts donated regularly by church members and that tithes are sacred. The big question is, how can church leaders manage tithes with reverence and efficiency?

In this digital age, there's no better way for church leaders to manage the church's tithes than through tithing software. We can also say that this may be one of the best ways for church members to offer their tithes.

Hopefully, this blog inspires you to invest in digital tools to help sustain your church's mission. 

What is tithing software?

A tithing software is a digital tool specifically used for collecting, facilitating, and managing tithes. Most likely, it is packed with the basic features of a church giving software needed to help church leaders administer all the church's financial activities.

Various tithing channels like text-to-give, the church mobile app, and even the church's website make the tithe-giving experience convenient for everyone.

For church leaders, tithing software automates many tithe collection and management processes. 

After all, that's what tithing software was designed for—to make giving and managing tithes easy for everyone! In that way, churches can encourage their people to stay committed to tithing because there's more convenience than hassles.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Tithing Software

On-site giving and donating tithes through checks remain the church tradition. However, several institutions have reported a prevailing trend toward online donations.

You can read more of these reports in this article, Charitable Giving Statistics.

Having mentioned that fact, churches can take advantage of this digital development for the church benefit.

Now, let's go a bit deeper by taking a look at the six main reasons why your church needs a tithing software!

1. Increase the channels of tithe giving

Each church member has their preferred mode for offering their tithes. Some may still carry cash; others may prefer digital payments. Just imagine what would happen to your tithe collection if you mandated a single mode of offering.

That's a recipe for a significant decrease in church funds!

Fortunately, you can provide more options for everyone through tithing software. Church members can donate through digital means like SMS giving, e-wallet transfer, the church mobile app, and even the church's website.

Moreover, you can still put up digital kiosks at church for tithe giving. One option could be a QR Code which members can scan to be directed for tithing. Another option is to have a mobile app scan the tithes offered through checks.

Of course, you have to connect these tithing channels to your primary tithing software. The bottom line is this: with more tithing channels, you lessen the barriers to tithing. Wherever the church member may be, they can still tithe.

2. Improve consistency in tithing and pledges

Tithing may be difficult for many church members; consistently tithing is even more challenging. And that doesn't even include other voluntary pledges and donations for the church.

They have reasons for not committing to their tithes, and you can explore those by clicking here.

Tithing software can help church members ease the discomforts of tithing through recurring donations. This method is slightly different from automatic bill paying wherein finance institutions charge members with fixed amounts at fixed dates and with no authorization needed sometimes.

On the other hand, recurring payments allow church members to donate their tithes at the amount and dates they have set and with the provision of some authorization methods. Church members may prefer this because it is flexible and allows them to track their donations.

That way, people won't have to think twice before sending their offering because the software has set it up for them. Moreover, this helps congregants develop a spiritual habit of thinking first about God and the church, for this is the nature of tithing.

Finally, as a church leader, automatic tithes mean that you will be expecting little to no delays in your church's revenue generation efforts through tithes.

3. Your church needs to sustain its stewardship efforts

More tithes mean more church activities.

The church member's tithes and donations primarily sustain the work of the Lord in the church. There's no other way to put that.

Without tithes, there's no way that any church can survive. The church's stewards need all the resources they can from tithes to look after the people of God through doing relevant ministries. 

Tithing software helps churches in this endeavor because church leaders can focus more on doing their ministries and encouraging people to offer their tithes. This eases the church leaders' worries about manually facilitating the collection of tithes or searching for means to generate cash flow for the church.

4. Inform your church with financial insights and analytics

A vital part of the church's stewardship efforts is to keep track of every cent that comes in and out of the church's revenue line. No excuses for that.

Because monetary tithes are sacred, you should be able to monitor the progress, work around the budget, and track the journey of how you accomplished a mission using these valuable resources.

This is where and how a good tithing software can help you not only with collecting and managing tithes. A good tithing software will present you with financial metrics and reports that are extensive yet easy to understand.

More importantly, you can use these insights for a transparency report which you must share with all church members. This helps build credibility and trust!

5. You can personalize gratitude for each member and donor

It might be a tiny detail that many tithing software may miss out on, but this is one feature you should always look into when investing in tithing software.

If you're a church member who just donated an amount out of your thin budget for tithes, it will boost your morale significantly when you receive a personalized message from church leaders thanking you for your efforts.

It's a simple and maybe even an automated act, but it will encourage people to keep on giving. Say their first names; share a bible verse; include a personal note of gratitude.

Surely, this also helps build trust and connection with everyone.  

Over to you

Tithing is a sacred duty of every Christian. Churches use tithes to sustain their ministries. Similarly, God asks us to steward the church's tithes for the benefit of the church because this is one way of honoring Him.

Investing in good tithing software should also be a priority for churches. To be clear, this is not solely about 'going with the trend.'

Instead, church leaders must view these undertakings from the pragmatic and spiritual aspects of tithing. Moreover, they must carefully research and deliberate the use of any tithing software. 

Expanding on the traditional means of tithing can reap the fruits of your tithes significantly when all systems are in place.

If this blog has made you excited to transform your tithing experience at church, Tithe.ly is the best place for you to begin your journey.
