Why Give?

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Acts 20:35


It is your generosity that continues to make an impact in our community and around the world. When you give to NewLife, you are partnering with us to make a difference in Knoxville, the Southeast, and beyond! Help us spread the good news of Christ by giving online or by dropping your offering off on Sunday morning.

Use our online form to make a donation to NewLife Gathering.


Can I give directly from my bank (ACH)?

Yes, it is easy, and this method incurs the least bank charge. Visit our online Donation portal and follow the instructions. Have your bank account and routing numbers handy. It may take a few days to be fully set up.

Can I give through a credit card?

Yes, although this method incurs a bank charge (which you can choose to pay or have it taken out of your total donation amount). Visit our online Donation portal and follow the instructions. Have your credit card available.

How do I send a gift via text?

Simply text 84321. There is a one-time setup, just like when giving through a credit card or directly from the bank, but after that you can simply text 84321 with your gift amount.

Can I give via Venmo or Zelle?

Unfortunately, our system is not set up to accept Venmo or Zelle transfers at this time.

What if I just want to give via a check?

Sure, we accept checks. They can be placed in the Lighthouse giving box in our lobby any time you visit our building, or mailed to: NewLife Gathering, PO Box 11768, Knoxville, TN 37939.

How do I set up recurring gifts?

You will be asked during the online donation process if you would like to make a one-time gift or a recurring gift.

Can I donate stocks?

Yes, simply email [email protected] and we will contact you with the required information.

If I am 73 or older can I use a part of my Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to give?

Yes, you can. Simply make out the check or have your financial institution make out the check directly from your tax deferred account (IRA, 401k, etc.) to NewLife Gathering.
