When I spent some time with Phil Ridgeway this morning, I instantly knew I was in the presence of someone devoted to the Church of God.
Phil’s family tree has roots deep in the denomination. An area account manager for Nationwide Payment Solutions, a payment processing software for churches, Phil is proud of his Pentecostal heritage.
“My grandfather was a minister in Georgia, my dad was a Church of God minister, and my three uncles and older brother are all ministers,” he explained.
This deep connection makes his work with Nationwide even more meaningful. The company allows churches to offer seamless kiosk, online, and mobile solutions for one-time and reoccurring giving, event registration, shopping, and more.
The best part: Nationwide donates 10% of all profits to Church of God World Missions!
The company also offers a referral program that provides financial benefits for churches that share this resource with other congregations as well as laity. (Wow—talk about a company that is committed to making a difference!)
Phil, along with Senior VPs Jamie Walker and Greg Renfroe, are at booth #512 in the exhibitors hall this week, and I encourage you to drop by and talk with them too. I was really impressed by their commitment to serving and giving back to the church. I think you will be too!
