cryptocurrency in church

It is phenomenal how cryptocurrency has started to take over the world, accepted in more places than initially imagined. For example, one Mississippi Southern Baptist church has climbed on board and given parishioners a method to pay tithes with digital currency.

Back Bay Baptist Church in Saint Martin, Mississippi, announced that it would accept tithes in cryptocurrency. It has several great reasons why. First, they no longer pass around a collection plate because of COVID. Second, attendance is probably down to allow for six feet of separation between attendees. Finally, they have placed an offering plate in the back of the church for anyone who still prefers to tithe that way.

But they’ve moved to more forward-thinking solutions, and accepting crypto will significantly benefit the church in many ways. Bitcoin is one of the digital currencies they accept. Still, they also accept Ethereum, USD coin, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Die, and Bitcoin cash. And they aren’t the only churches moving in that direction. Others who have jumped on board with the crypto movement include; The Church of Saint John the Evangelist in Goshen, New York, Mill Creek Community Church in Kansas, Connections Community Church in Idaho, and Mountain View Baptist Church in California.

“Adopting these technologies early on, I realize this is not a common thing. But I’m of the opinion that in 20 or 30 years, cryptocurrency is going to be a way of life and using the blockchain technology. Hopefully, our church will be leading the way.” Pastor Adam Bennett of Back Bay Baptist Church

Churches have always tried to be as forward-thinking as they could. Some have started playing rock music to attract younger generations. They’ve gone to the internet with video sermons to attract non-churchgoers or people who can’t be there for some reason. Accepting cryptocurrency is another step in the right direction. Not only is it a way to stay relevant in an ever-changing world, but crypto’s buying power consistently climbs, and that’s what’s most attractive about it.
