WAYS TO GIVE
Here at TC, we have several ways for you to take action on your generosity and to give:
The Church Center App is the central hub for our congregation. In addition to being able to manage your profile, pre-check in your kids on Sunday’s for kids church, view the TC Groups directory and see the groups you are a part of, and see any upcoming events, you can give instantly using a credit or debit card, by using ACH transfers, or with Apple Pay! Donors can also manage their recurring donations and payment methods, as well as view your donation history. You can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
We fully understand most people no longer carry cash or checks. We have made giving electronically with a debit/credit card, with your bank account as an ACH transfer, or with Apple Pay easy and safe. Click here to be taken or our secure portal. To make giving even more convenient, you can setup your account and save your information for future gifts!
Many people here at TC take advantage of the convenience of recurring giving. With recurring giving you can setup automatic transactions to happen on the schedule you set. This way, even if you miss a service you can still take part in giving with us! Recurring giving can be setup in your profile in our secure portal by clicking here, or by downloading the Church Center App.
To give securely with cash or check during the service, you will find a tithe & offering envelope in the seat back in front of you. We will also have them available at the Connect Center in the lobby. When you exit the auditorium, there are Tithe & Offering drop-box’s located next to the doors, just drop your envelope there.
You can also mail in your gift to us at 6800 Mobile Hwy. Pensacola, FL 32526.
TC can now accept cryptocurrency donations, including Bitcoin, Ether, and 24 other crypto coins! If you have cryptocurrency you thought about liquidating to make a donation to TC, don’t…Save yourself the capital gains taxes you’d owe by donating the crypto directly to us! We are exempt from capital gains taxes so you get the benefit of a tax-deductible, charitable donation, as well saving yourself from incurring a tax liability!
We have partnered with Engiven to process cryptocurrency donations. They way it works is simple:
- A donor makes a crypto donation
- Engiven verifies and liquidates the crypto
- An ACH deposit is made to TC
It’s that simple! All donations will be reflected on your annual giving statement as well.

You can also give non-cash assets such as stocks, real estate, IRA’s, and other assets. The benefit to do it this way is it saves you on owing any capital gains taxes! Normally, if you had shares of a stock and you wanted to make a gift to the church, you would sale the stock and donate the proceeds. However, in doing this, you now have a tax obligation and will owe capital gains taxes. Instead, donate the stock directly to us! As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we are exempt from any capital gains taxes. So, you still make your financial gift which qualifies as a tax deduction as a charitable donation AND we all avoid a tax obligation. It’s a win/win! If you would like to donate a non-cash asset, please contact Pastor Justin Oswald at firstname.lastname@example.org and he can walk you through the process.
How to Give Online (or from the Church Center App)
Tithing Is Our Foundation of Giving
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives.
At Transformation Church, we believe what the Bible teaches in Malachi 3:9-10, and the numerous teaching of Jesus including Matthew 22, about tithing. We teach tithing as an act of worship to God, who has provided us with everything that we have. When we tithe, we express gratitude, faith, and love for others. We give because we love Him and we love people.
We also give offerings to God, which is gift above and beyond our tithe.
