Oh, I don't think he was pressuring anyone. It just felt like that was his main reason for getting up there. It just that the flow of the service wasOne of the things I love and respect about the pastor of my church is that when it comes time for the collection, he makes a point of saying that if you're a first-time visitor, not comfortable, or don't feel able, DON'T GIVE. He truly preaches "God loves a cheerful giver" and does not want to coerce or pressure anyone.
Ask fot money
Ask for money for those muslims who need jesus
When 2 of the 3 times you come up, you're asking for money, it does not feel like church that I am familiar with. Feels like Jim and Tammy. The church that i grew up in certainly had the weekly offering, but it was just another part of the service and I never felt any extra attention was drawn to that part.
