PHOENIX, Ariz. - Most Protestant ministers believe Christians are supposed to tithe - or give 10 percent of their income - to their local church. Unfortunately for ministers and churches, most people in the pews do not agree with them.
Those were the findings of two studies conducted by Ellison Research in Phoenix, Ariz. One was a representative sample of 811 Protestant church ministers nationwide, and the other was a companion survey of 1,184 people who attend Protestant churches at least once a month.
The results were released in the March/April edition of 'Facts & Trends' a magazine published bimonthly by LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention."
