Why We Give
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for tithing. When we give the first fruit to the church, we put God first in our lives. Generosity is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.
God provides for the ministry of Poyen Assembly through your generosity. We honor your gifts with faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of Poyen Assembly remains above reproach.
Your gift to support this ministry financially enables us to reach the world for Jesus.
We’re Switching to a New Giving Platform!
Did you know that every time you give money digitally to our church, we lose a percentage of that gift to fees? Adding up the fees, we spend several thousand dollars each year in giving fees alone! However, we've recently discovered a new giving platform that will help save on fees associated with digital giving so that we can be better stewards of your gifts.
RebelGive partners with the giver to cover the processing fees so that 100% of the intended gift is given to the church. Unlike most other church giving providers, RebelGive doesn’t inflate fees to keep a portion for themselves, so their processing fee is the lowest in the industry. What this means is that, by choosing to use this platform, you can have the convenience of giving online, while still allowing Poyen Assembly to receive 100% of your generous gifts!
When you give using this new platform, there are a couple of options to give.
1.) Give online with your credit or debit card. A 1.9% convenience fee will be added to your gift.
2.) Give online with your bank account. NO FEE- no matter the size of your gift.
How To Give
After clicking the grey circle icon on the right of your screen, you'll follow along with a simple and easy-to-use GivingFlow. You will then have the option to give with a credit card, which will incur a 1.9% processing fee from the credit card company (which is 35% lower than standard processing fees!) But that fee can still be significant on larger gifts, so we highly recommend connecting your bank account to use ACH giving, which will include NO FEE! This can save you money each time you give, and saves Poyen Assembly thousands of dollars every year, so instead of paying fees, we can continue to impact our community with the message of Jesus!
You can also create an account, which will allow you to save your information for easy and accessible future giving.
All gifts to Poyen Assembly are tax deductible, and you will receive a giving statement at the end of the year.
Your Online Giving Is Secure
- Our new digital giving platform, RebelGive uses 256-bit encryption (which is the same level as every major bank) and our GivingFlows use secure tokens so that givers' information is protected. In layman's terms, RebelGive is compliant with the strictest standards governing the processing of electronic payments.
- At Poyen Assembly we will never share any of your personal information. Your giving is 100% tax deductible and at the end of each year you will receive your personal Giving Report.
