Think of all the events your church hosts throughout the year – from dinners and fundraisers to mission trips and service programs, classes and workshops to special youth activities.

If you want to make it as easy as possible for members of your church to sign up for these events and get involved, you need to make sure your eGiving program provides a dedicated event registration tool that you can use for your church.

This is the next frontier in eGiving – especially since online event registration is now part of your members’ daily lives.

This growing trend is here to stay, and according to one of our targeted survey respondents:

“Church members are asking for this every day.”

What you should ask eGiving providers about event registration:

1. Does my eGiving program have a dedicated event registration platform for the church?
2. Can it make the sign-up process easier by “autofilling” personal and payment information for registered eGiving users?
3. Can the online registration tool be customized for specific events?
4. Can church members easily use the registration system on their computers, phones and tablets?

The answer to all these questions should be “yes” – if you want a program that is convenient and efficient, and meets the needs of your church.

Here is a video explaining how Faith Direct is incorporating online event registration into our eGiving program – if you have any questions or want more information, feel free to email or call us toll-free at (866) 507-8757.
