Donate to Thousand Tongues

Our songwriters and other conributors strive to fulfill the mission of Thousand Tongues with their time, talents, and resources, as unto the Lord (Colossians 3:23). God has been very gracious to us in providing the technology, instruments, and other expenses that we need, often in surprising ways. He has always and will ever be faithful to supply us with all that we need to accomplish His purposes in this world (Philippians 4:19). In light of this and the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness towards us (Ephesians 2:7), in 2009 we decided to make everything we create available for free. Even in our "store" where items are available for purchase, the price is simply a suggested donation and can be changed, often to $0.

We are a resource ministry providing the church with materials to equip, motivate, and train people in their understanding of music and worship. The commercial music industry is, by and large, transactional. That is, a song or musical recording is a product that is purchased in a transaction between a merchant and a customer. We want to break that mold by unashamedly asking for donations to help subsidize the things we do that are important to our mission but difficult to raise revenue from. We want our driving force to be our mission, not our money. To help us do this with accountability and structure, in 2012 we organized as a 501(c)3 non-profit.

The Patronage Model

We'd prefer to think of you as patrons, and for you to think of us as artists. So when you support us by using our songs, making a donation, or purchasing something through our on-line store, you are partnering with us to spread our vision for Christian worship. It takes time, technology, instruments and their maintenance, and a host of other expenses to keep writing, recording, publishing, and sharing our material. If you support our mission we encourage you to make an unspecified one-time or recurring donation. If you have downloaded sheet music or other resources that are normally sold, please consider "purchasing" them by making a donation. If you use our songs regularly in public worship, consider making a recurring gift to us as a church.
