Tithe Giver – Someone who has seen the blessing that comes with giving and is ready to commit the first 10% of their income to the kingdom. (Malachi 3:10)
Consistent Giver – Someone who is ready to be more purposeful about their giving, has made an assessment, and is determined to give consistently.
Emerging Giver – Someone who is ready to take the exciting first step toward worshiping and growing through giving.
Potential Giver – Everyone has the opportunity to impact the kingdom through participating in God’s work and seeing the growth that comes through giving.
