Discipleship Ministries recommended the following ministry partners:
- UMGgo, the United Methodist church app. firstname.lastname@example.org. This app has both free features and paid features and available to all UM churches. The free features include: unlimited profile set-ups (church members), the ability of the church to send 4 push notifications per month, set up an online bulletin, and customize the app with a "Contact Us", among other information pages (think announcements). For $39 per month, a church can send unlimited messages through the app, membership directory, online giving integrated, mobile giving forms, registration for events, capital campaigns, etc.
- Vanco’s Give Plus has a variety of giving solutions: Online, mobile, text to give, kiosk, or card reader. You can find out more about these options here: https://www.vancopayments.com/faith-based?hsCtaTracking=dba8d12a-897b-4cf4-8b47-80d164e5cb2c%7C98aca488-adc8-4d3e-842b-3f2b77370ff4
- PayPal Donations, there are no setup, monthly or cancellation fees. Your church will only pay 2.2 percent plus $0.30 per transaction. When donating through PayPal Donations, members will be taken to a page on PayPal’s website that cannot be customized. They’ll see the PayPal logo, and they won’t see your church’s logo.

- EasyTithe offers a customizable yet affordable giving solution. The company will work with your church to create an app that complements your church’s branding. When members go to give, they’ll be taken to a page that has your church’s logo and looks like it’s part of your church’s website. That plan’s transaction rates for most credit cards are 3 percent plus $0.30 per transaction. https://www.easytithe.com/
