The story so far…

We are here to serve the church, inspire their communities, and together change the world.

Our Purpose

To bring people together by strengthening community, connection, and belonging.  

Our people and culture 

We are a generous culture.  A driven culture and a passionate culture.  We truly care about our cause and inspiring change that will actually impact the world.  We work hard.  We play hard.  We celebrate our wins and learn from our losses.  We are moved and motivated by our purpose.  We are here to serve the local Church with world-class innovation, creating a deeper connection between it and the community.

  To Serve

We’ve all seen the incredible ways generosity can change the world.  How passionate engagement in a cause can inspire all those that surround it.  How generosity can facilitate the spreading of hope, healing, safety, and compassion.  To inspire a world starts with one thing, an idea, a cause, and a passion.

 Simplicity in Generosity

People want to be generous. But so often, we make it difficult for givers to live this value out. Historically, the church has lead the way with innovation, pioneering things like hospitals, modern medicine, and even the printing press. Unfortunately, when it comes to mobile technology, in the midst of today’s technological revolution, the church has taken a backseat.

Co-founders Eliot Crowther and Chris Heaslip have always had a passion for generosity. They wanted to find a way to use technology to serve the Church with generosity and connect people to their communities. When they had the idea for Pushpay, it was realized when trying to be generous at Church. With no cash on hand and no checkbook, they wondered why there wasn’t a better way. When people are passionate about a cause or an organization the last thing you want to do is make it challenging to support them or engage with them.

Technology meets Generosity

It all started with Pushpay, originally a mobile giving solution that made generosity easy and simple.  It provided a constant open line to members of an organization and this enabled generosity anytime, anywhere with the touch of a virtual button. Now, echurch powered by Pushpay technology has now grown to serve over 6,000 churches, connecting them to the local community and simply inspiring generosity.

Our Heart

Generosity sits at the forefront of the church and technology is now a key element to unlocking this generosity from a changing generation. At our heart, we are here to serve the church. echurch is the leading resource for church growth, engagement, and management that helps facilitate generosity and uses cutting edge Pushpay mobile giving technology.  Our goal is to see billions of dollars given to the local church, to serve the world, and make it a better place.
