Believe it or not, there is a television ministry that does not hit you with the infamous “plate”. ‘The Shepherd’s Chapel’. The only mention of money is at the end of the broadcast, when an off-screen voice says, “We are brought to you by your tithes and offerings. If we have helped you, won’t you help us?” Short & sweet. The first time I tuned in, I thought, “I’ll watch until he asks for money, then back to channel surfing.” Been watching ever since. He doesn’t pass the plate in his brick & mortar church, either.
