Are church members more apt to tithe or give larger offerings if they know where the money is going?


Do you think church members are more apt to tithe more money or guests give larger offerings if they know where the money is being spent, and should members have an input as to where that money goes in reference to charities, assisting others, etc.?

    I think that's the way it should be and can't help wonder why someone would say it's not anybodies business. I think that just sends up all kinds of red flags :) Your right to offer the complete transparency. Thanks

    Great answer, especially when you see so many new churches wanting to get really big, really quick.

    I agree and think that if there is nothing being spent other than money to support the church or those in need then why wouldn't someone want it known. hmmmmm

    You hit the nail on the head and the reasoning behind this question. I was reading about a huge religious organization that donated to a specific worthy charity which turned out be .015%. I realize the enormous cost of operations but .015% really?
