Electronic Ministry Resources LLC
Electronic Ministry Resources LLC began distributing its in-church kiosks to church clients in July. After a year of research and development, a team of four partners launched the kiosks that display videos, search for international missionaries, show event details and accept monetary offerings electronically, said Sean Greves, a partner with George Schmoele, Chris Massey and J.P. Peltier, who work from their homes. EMIN Resources joined with Sage Payment Solutions to handle electronic offering payments with debit or credit cards. The kiosk hardware, touch screen and an optional stand cost roughly $950, Greves said, and EMIN Resources charges a monthly fee for its software. Greves said the typical cost to set up an entire kiosk ranges from $1,000 to $1,400. Phone: (417) 619-3850. Web:
