Benefits & Security

Benefits
There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.
• Consistency – By setting up a recurring contribution scheduled to be withdrawn from your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are given
back to God.

• Simplicity – You will not need to remember if you gave this month or to send in your

 
offering checks when you are out of town.

• Security – Though we take every precaution with your Sunday giving, online giving is

secure because there is virtually no risk that your gift will be lost or stolen.

• No Distractions – Instead of writing your contribution check during the service, you can

be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your

offering.

• Helping Northwest Chapel – Online contributions require less processing from our

administrative staff since the information is logged and deposited automatically.

 
Security
Our online giving utilizes a company called MinistryLINQ, a division of The CashLINQ group. They provide a full range of PCI – compliant transactional merchant products to Christian organizations in the United States. They understand our need to be a good steward with the money we receive, and they work to help us fulfill our mission in serving the needs of building the Kingdom.
 
While their system allows you to make donations online, the important point to know is MinistryLINQ provides all of the security for the system, not Northwest Chapel.
 
The CashLINQ group is certified as PCI Compliant, which means they meet or exceed all requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. This is a world-wide benchmark mandated by the card associations for the protection of the cardholder identity and transaction information, and it means that we can offer the utmost protection for Northwest Chapel. For added security, they utilize a dual-location facility that operates under the strictest security protocols.
