We recently caught up with Jason Cahill, lead pastor from River’s Edge Church in Boise, who shared his church’s experience using Kindrid.
Jason first heard about Kindrid through a mentor at Generations Church. At that point, given the size of his own congregation, he wasn’t convinced they could afford Kindrid.
9 months later, after learning that River's Edge still hadn’t signed up, Jason's mentor teased him for having such a bad excuse and told him to just do it. At midnight that same evening, Jason and his wife began setting up their Kindrid account. It was finished 15 minutes later. Kindrid at River’s Edge was ready to launch the next morning.
Knowing the platform is backed by Life.Church and fully integrates with Fellowship One, Jason trusted his mentor’s advice to prove itself. In turn, gaining congregational support was incredibly simple. The results are truly astonishing.
6 weeks after introducing the platform to River's Edge, Kindrid accounts for 75% of total giving.
Jason reflected, “People knew they should give, but didn’t, because it wasn’t easy enough. Over the last 6 weeks, those people began tithing.” He’s even had people thank him for making giving so easy!
Joining Kindrid takes most people less than 30 minutes—and half that time, in Jason’s case. Despite his initial hesitancy to join Kindrid, Jason was thrilled with the simplicity and speed of the process, both on the front-end with account set up and now, as his people regularly text their tithes.
In a culture where people rarely carry cash or check, Kindrid empowers the Church to enter into greater obedience by giving in a way that works with their lifestyles.
