You don’t get to call a timeout in ministry. You can’t hit pause, or ask people to only have pastoral needs during office hours. Because of the constant demands of ministry, your church technology needs to work for you 24/7/365, not just on Sundays. Your soundboard needs to work during weekday worship practice, your projector system has to be responsive, and your giving tool needs to work whenever someone feels inspired to give.
That’s why we take reliability so seriously and built a giving tool and church app that supports your ongoing ministry work. Here’s how Pushpay’s platform works alongside church staff to propel your ministry forward.
Church Technology Reliability
When someone tries to donate or listen to a sermon in your app, they’re trying to create a meaningful connection with your church. If your tech fails, you just missed an opportunity to connect with that person. For someone scoping out a new church to attend, a crashed app reflects poorly on the church and its perceived ability to care for the community.
Bad tech shouldn’t stand in the way of people getting connected to your church. That’s why we designed a church app and giving tool that has one of the best reliability records on this market. Don’t just take our word for it: You can check if our platform is working right now.
A crashed giving tool can cause your church to miss out on your community’s generosity. And if people can’t give in the moment they want to, they might forget to donate that gift altogether, and your church will miss out on well-intentioned generosity. Technology should never stand in the way of people who want to participate with and donate to your church.
Keeping Your Community Safe
Giving is important. It’s also vulnerable. If someone’s identity or financial information is compromised while giving to your church, it’s going to be hard to rebuild trust with that person. And mistrust spreads. If one person’s information is compromised, they’re sure to tell their family and friends. And your church will take the fall for a tech vendor’s failings.
That’s why we are PCI Level-1 compliant and use a number of security protocols designed to keep your givers and your church safe. Our systems use machine learning to quickly detect fraudulent transactions and stop them in their tracks and we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to keep all personal information secure.
We know you’ve poured your heart and soul into ministry and fostering a sense of trust. You shouldn’t have to worry about losing everything you’ve built because of technology issues. We have designed our platform with this in mind and our focus is on doing everything we can to alleviate those worries so you can focus on ministry.
Works During Your Big Church Days
Some church days are known for increased attendance and more generosity. But imagine if your giving platform crashed during your Easter or Christmas service. Your church could miss out on enough donations to negatively impact its financial stability for the next fiscal year. And as a result, ministries could be underfunded, as well day-to-day operations, missions projects, and even staff pay. We’ve heard nightmare stories from some of our new customers about this happening with their previous solutions…
That’s why Pushpay is powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the industry leader in security and reliability. Now you won’t have to worry about whether your giving technology is actually ready to handle your church’s biggest days. Pushpay supports your everyday operations and is there for you when your tech matters most.
