Frequently asked questions:
 
How does Faith Direct work?
Faith Direct is a secure system that works directly with your bank account or credit/debit card – much the same as other direct payments you may have set up for utility bills or mortgage payments. There is no cost to you to participate in the program.


When do transactions take place?
Transactions take place on the 4th or 15th (or the next business day).   The total amount of your gifts for that current month will be debited in one monthly total.


Can I give a one-time donation?
Yes, there is an option to make a one-time donation.


How can I be sure my gift is going to my church?
Your gift will be clearly itemized on your bank or credit/debit card statement. St. John’s receives monthly statements detailing your support, and we will continue to provide you with an annual contribution statement for tax purposes.


Can I contact someone at Faith Direct if I have problems with set up or additional questions?
Yes, by calling Faith Direct at 1-866-507-8757 by e-mailing info@faithdirect.net, or by logging into your account via www.faithdirect.net and click on the on-line chat button.


Can I stop, increase, or decrease my donation at any time?
Yes, by calling, e-mailing or updating your account on-line.
