PushPay - Frequently Asked Questions
What is PushPay?
PushPay is a brand new method of giving at New Minas Baptist Church. Using text, our website, and our brand new NMBC App you can now give anytime from anywhere. PushPay is a reputable company that we have partnered with to add these new methods of giving.
Is PushPay Safe?
Yes! No credit card details are held on your phone. Credit card details are tokenized and are stored on industrial grade servers where this information is then encrypted. The security setup we have used is the same as many banks. If your phone is lost, no transactions can be made without your passcode.
Do I have to Switch from My Old Giving Method?
We are excited about PushPay at NMBC because it allows us to remove barriers to giving, especially for Next Generations. However, we are not planning to eliminate any of our other methods of giving like offering envelopes or our giving time with offering plates in our services. Also, if you already have recurring giving setup with our NMBC Office [via the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches] you do not have to change. However, we believe that using PushPay is easier, more convenient and gives you more control over your giving. If you would like to switch to using PushPay we are happy to help you, just contact our NMBC office.
Can I use PushPay with my Bank Account?
In Canada PushPay currently works by using Visa or MasterCards. This means that when you make a one time or recurring gift using your PushPay account it will come from the credit card that you provide a number for. If you bank with one of the major banks [CIBC, Royal Bank, TD, ScotiaBank] you can ask your bank for a VisaDebit card. This card functions as a Visa for online purchases but funds come from your bank account. Credit Union has a MasterCard product that functions the same way. VisaDebit and MasterCard Debit cards also work with PushPay and therefore give you the option to make one time or recurring gifts from your bank account.
I Want to Setup Automatic Recurring Giving. How Can I Do That?
There are two methods for doing this. Method one is to have your gift automatically withdrawn from your bank account. This is arranged by contacting Paris Chute in our church office. Method two is through PushPay. In PushPay you have complete control over recurring giving when you setup an account. If you need any assistance with this please contact our church office.
How Do I Download the NMBC App?
We now have a custom church app you can download to stay connected with everything here at New Minas Baptist Church! As we continue to develop it you will be able to access sermons, events, our church directory, and give, right through our app. Just go to your phone's app store [both iOS or Android], search for New Minas Baptist Church, and download. For help with our NMBC App please contact our church office.
We are so grateful for the generosity of those who support the gospel work we do together. Your financial faithfulness is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions you can contact Pastor Daniel at 902-681-7683 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
