Christ’s Mission…Our Mission

Christ’s mission is our mission. From this point forward, all ministries, personnel, and resources of the World Church will be focused on the whole mission of Jesus Christ. For the first time, Christ’s mission is clearly articulated in five, life-changing, church-changing, and world-changing Mission Initiatives.

The Pre-Authorized Monthly Checking Account Transfer (PAT) option for contributions to Community of Christ (available only in Canada and the United States and limited to congregations that currently use online Shelby for contributions) provides a way to make regular monthly contributions to Local and World Mission Tithes through electronic fund transfers from your bank or financial institution. You determine the amount you want to contribute to each month. Pre-Authorized Transfers occur on the 15th of each month.

You may still use offering envelopes to give additional contributions. Pre-Authorized Transfer contributions will be added to all other contributions you give through offering envelopes and will be reported on the regular monthly statements you receive from your congregational financial officer.

You may set-up, submit changes, or request to cancel online through the PAT authorization form, which must be received at Community of Christ International Headquarters by the first of the month to be effective for that month’s contribution. Verbal or e-mail change requests cannot be honored. Your request will be acknowledged in writing within seven days of receipt. You may also print and mail or fax PAT authorization forms to headquarters at (816) 521-3094.

For questions about Pre-Authorized Transfers, including obtaining and filling out a PAT authorization form, contact your congregational or mission center financial officer or Community of Christ Fiscal Services by e-mail or 1-800-825-2806, ext. 1406. Pre-authorized transfers are automatically stopped when congregation membership transfers are processed.


Online Banking

For areas where the Pre-Authorized Transfer system is not available, or for contributors who prefer to give different amounts at different times, online banking may be used as an electronic contribution option. You can give to Local and World Mission Tithes through online banking, as long as your local bank or financial institution provides this service.

When you log on to your online bank account, you must initially provide mailing information that includes the church name (Community of Christ—then your congregation name), local or mission center financial officer’s name, mailing address, and phone number. If you prefer to use online banking to contribute to World Mission Tithes only, include the following contact information: Community of Christ, Presiding Bishopric, 1001 W. Walnut, Independence, Missouri 64050-3562; phone: 1-800-825-2806, ext. 1384. Be sure to include the amount and name of funds to which you want to contribute. Once the church address/contact information is included in your online bank account, you are set to make contributions to Local and World Mission Tithes any time, day or night!

For further information, contact Fiscal Services by e-mail or 1-800-825-2806, ext. 1391.
