My Husband Is in the Military. Who Should We Tithe to?

soldierQuestion from a reader:

My husband is in the military and we will be attending the base chapel.  I understand we should tithe to our local church but the military pays for the chapel's needs and salaries so I am wondering where we should send our tithe money? Some of our military friends send it to non-profit organizations such as Campus Crusade or Cadence International.

Answer from Randy Alcorn:

Interesting question, one I’ve never been asked. In this case I think it would be fine either to send back to your home church or find another ministry to send it to, or divide between them. Campus Crusade and Cadence International are both good choices. If a special ministry is being undertaken by the chapel on base, and it’s worthy, that would be another option.

For more information on tithing and handling money, see Randy Alcorn's books Money, Possessions and Eternity and The Treasure Principle.
