MinistryLINQ is continually inspired by the work our referral partners do, and the Evangelical Christian Credit Union is no exception. When the credit union began more than 40 years ago, it was a consumer-focused organization. As time went on, however, ECCU shifted its focus to offering specialized financial services to churches, Christian schools, and evangelical ministries.
The relationship between ECCU and MinistryLINQ began in 2004 when the credit union was looking for assistance with merchant services. While the organization originally did their own payment processing, they discovered that utilizing the services of MinistryLINQ allowed them to retain an income stream without the associated costs and manpower of in-house processing.
Shortly after beginning our partnership, the first version of DonateQ was introduced, and ECCU immediately saw the value it would have for their clients. “We like having the ability to refer them to someone we have a relationship with,” explains Mary Daciolas, Manager of Product Management. “We’re very like-minded in our focus on evangelical ministries.”
Daciolas continues to say that she sees other ways in which our two organizations will be able to make even more of our relationship in the future and stresses that no matter the situation, MinistryLINQ has always offered great support and been ready to respond to ECCU’s needs.
We’re so glad that ECCU has found such value in our products and service, and we thank them for their ongoing faith and commitment to building the Kingdom.
It is amazing to see the diversity of ways in which MinistryLINQ clients support Christian ideals through the work they do. We are honored to work with CAMPWISE by Rec Soft, a small software company that provides online registration and management tools that so many church camps and conference centers rely on to bring people together for His glory.
Our relationship with CAMPWISE began six years ago when we were privileged to meet them at a conference. CAMPWISE was in search of a reliable merchant services provider, and a match was made. CAMPWISE President Derek Wyse feels that the relationship has been a positive addition to his business. “We’ve obviously benefited from the residual part of the referral partnership,” he says, but that is not the only aspect of working with MinistryLINQ that has proven valuable. “We appreciate the Christian values of the company,” he explains.
MinistryLINQ also provides CAMPWISE with a gateway provider, and everyone has been pleased by how seamlessly our solutions mesh with their existing products. Wyse is most impressed with the fact that each referral partner has their own Relationship Manager. “Having someone there that is an advocate for us has created some real benefits.” In his experience, MinistryLINQ has been quick to respond to customer needs and is more than willing to handle any kinds of concerns that may arise.
We’re so pleased to continue nurturing this partnership with CAMPWISE. The work they do to bring both children and adults together in fellowship is inspiring, and we are gratified to be playing a small part in what they do.
