ELECTRONIC GIVING (eGIVING) - A WAY FORWARD FOR PNG CHURCHES


April 01, 2021 - 303 views

Church goers from the PNG Adventist Church can now give their tithes to God, without worrying about contracting COVID-19 through a new BSP ‘eGiving’ product.

 

BSP PNG says the launch of ‘eGiving’ (electronic giving) in partnership with the PNG Adventist Church has introduced the first Papua New Guinea Church to make ‘eGiving’ accessible to its members across PNG and the World.

 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic measures, BSP is working with churches to provide an alternate payment method for their members to continue contributions to church.

 

COVID-19 has reduced participation numbers in church gatherings, and as a result, church members are turning to live streaming and online services.

 

Nuni Kuku, BSP General Manager Digital, says in a statement that most members however, still feel the need to visit the church to give their weekly tithes.

 

He says the availability of eGiving allows church members to electronically pay their tithes directly to the Church account from the comfort and safety of their homes, via the church websites.

 

Kulu adds that the Adventist Church in PNG, is the first denomination to come on board with this initiative.

 

Church member Cynthia Aaron testified when testing the service that it is fast, easy, and convenient.

 

Cynthia says in this time where COVID-19 restrictions have limited her to attend her church at Pacific Adventist University English Church, she is still able to return her tithes this way.

 

The church website, www.giving.adventist.org.pg allows for members all over PNG to tithe, covering a list of all local missions from Bougainville Mission, to Eastern Highlands Simbu Mission, Milne Bay and missions across the country.
