In an attempt to save you money and time, as well as to ensure that gifts are received each month, we are implementing a system that allows you to give your financial gifts electronically. This process is called Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). EFT is a transfer system used by banks, businesses, and individuals to transfer funds from one bank account directly into another without the use of checks. By using EFT, you will save time and money by not having to write checks, purchase stamps, or mail gifts to Campus Outreach Greenville.
The process for using EFT is simple and hassle free. Just return the printable form to Campus Outreach Greenville. By doing this you give your bank and Campus Outreach Greenville permission to transfer a predetermined amount from your checking or savings account each month. Campus Outreach will continue to handle your donation as it does now, including sending you a monthly receipt that reflects the previous month's giving. You can change or stop your giving through EFT at any time you want by notifying Campus Outreach Greenville in writing.
To begin using EFT, complete the following steps:
Please allow 2-4 weeks for processing. You will receive either a letter or e-mail confirming that we've processed your authorization form and telling you when your first EFT draft will occur.
If you have any questions, please contact us at the Campus Outreach Greenville office at 864-268-2218 ext. 220 or [email protected].
The ultimate purpose of all creation is to bring attention to God and to glorify Him. Campus Outreach Greenville exists so that He may receive continual praise, honor and glory from us as we find our joy in Him.
By Building Laborers:
The need of the hour for the church is trained followers of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to work to help grow students into mature disciples that can evangelize and disciple others.
On the Campus:
The college campus is a strategic mission field. College students are at the crossroads of life, making lifetime decisions and moving out to influence the world.
For the Lost World:
These same college students who are trained on campuses eventually become men and women in the workplace, the home, our schools, and other avenues of life. Upon graduation, they have the potential to affect the lost world with the gospel and to train others to labor for Christ.

God's work is accomplished as many join in partnership to complete the task of building laborers on the campus for the lost world. A portion of the COG budget is given by Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church. Each individual campus staff person is responsible for raising their own personal financial support, which is given through individuals, local churches, alumni, and businesses. This financial support goes towards a staff person's salary and insurance.
All donations are tax-deductible in accordance with Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church's federal tax 501 (c)(3) status. As required by law, all donations are under the supervision and control of the session of Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church.
Campus Outreach Greenville is under the supervision and authority of Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church in Greenville, South Carolina, yet maintains an interdenominational profile on the campus. Mitchell Road is committed to reaching college students locally and also joining hands with the broader evangelical community to reach college students in this geographic region. This unique relationship with the church gives COG the freedom to minister to all students directly and to wholeheartedly support and work with other churches which are committed to the essentials of the Christian faith.
