God tells us in Malachi 3:10-11 to test His faithfulness by returning the first 10% of our income to Him. This is called the tithe. Countless people experience His blessings when they tithe, but the first step can be the hardest one to take. The 90 Day Tithe Challenge is a great way to take your next step toward experiencing God’s faithfulness.

Here’s our commitment to you: If you tithe for three months and don’t see God’s blessings in your life, we will refund 100% of your tithe.

Test me in this and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be enough room to store it. – Malachi 3:10

What is a tithe?

A tithe is the Biblical concept of giving away 10% of your income, an idea that was instituted thousands of years ago as a way to thank and worship God (Deuteronomy 14:22). In ancient times the tithe was a portion of crops and herds, but the principle still holds true today. Everything you have comes from God, and returning at least 10% of it to continue God’s work in the world is an act of acknowledging where it came from, what it is for, and remembering who owns it.

What is the 90 Day Tithe Challenge?

A “tithe challenge” is a way for us to recognize God’s promise to honor and take care of His people. In Malachi 3:10, God is in essence asking, “Don’t you think I will completely bless you and take care of you if you live on 90% of what I gave you?” By living sacrificially with your giving, you are investing in spreading the message of Jesus to the whole world. And here’s our commitment to you: If you tithe for three months and don’t see God’s blessings in your life, we will refund 100% of your tithe.

How exactly does the money-back guarantee work?

Contact the Crossroads finance office (giving@xr.church) within the 90 days, and we’ll refund your tithe—no questions asked.

How do I start tithing today?

1. Calculate 10% of your income. (Calculate 10% of your paycheck, and each time you get paid, give 10% of your paycheck to the work of Christ at Crossroads.)

2. Set-up a recurring gift through our website or our mobile app. This is the easiest and fastest way to ensure you’re keeping up with the challenge.

By contributing automatically and electronically, you are contributing the “first fruits” of your income (2 Chronicles 31:4-5). You can also give by writing a check and dropping it in the weekend offering at any location. Cash giving is also welcomed, however you must put your cash in a giving envelope with your name and contact information in order for us to know that it’s from you.

You may also choose to use your online banking bill pay option through your bank or credit union. This is super simple: log-in to your online banking system and set up ‘Crossroads Church’ as the payee; use the address 1000 Crossroads Drive, Oakdale, PA 15071. In the account number or memo field, enter your Crossroads region (i.e. Pittsburgh West, Pittsburgh South, Pittsburgh North, Ohio Valley).

Any way you decide to give, we’ll record your gift and send you a contribution statement at year-end for charitable deduction purposes.
