FAQS

Why do we believe in stewardship?

Your financial giving changes people’s lives. It helps Urban Village Church reach out in bold, inclusive, and relevant ways. This is why we exist: to create Jesus-loving, inclusive communities that ignite the city.

Your financial giving also changes you. It slowly ignites a totally new way of life in which you realize that everything you have is from God, that you have been gifted and are therefore called to pass on the gift to someone else: to use your resources wisely and generously.

What is Pushpay?

Questions? Contact our Director of Operations for help!

Should I use ACH (Bank Account) giving?

Yes! Credit cards cost us about 2 to 2.5% for each transaction, and that adds up to hundreds of dollars each month! Setting up a direct withdrawal from your bank account using ACH gives you the peace of mind that the vast majority of your gift is going directly to Urban Village.

Is online giving safe?

Yes! Urban Village Church’s relationship with Pushpay makes our online giving fully compliant with industry guidelines related to the use of credit cards and bank account information.

Why do we invite concrete commitments in advance?

As we grow, we want to be responsible stewards for the future: we are developing a comprehensive budget for our next seasons of ministry. This budget is funded by the generosity of attenders and friends, primarily through annual commitments. Pledges (or annual commitments) are especially important because they help us estimate the resources available and plan accordingly.

What if my financial circumstances change?

If you need to change your commitment at any time, just let us know. This commitment represents your voluntary giving; it’s not a binding contract. For more information, email [email protected]

How are our financial gifts used? What is our financial health?

We believe in honesty, transparency, and collaboration in our finances. Every fall, the Urban Village Church Finance Team asks for members to make a yearly pledge, and they draft a budget for congregational insight. After receiving feedback and yearly pledges, the Finance Team publishes a final budget for the year. Questions? Contact our Director of Operations for more information.
