paid4u.com is a unique plan to motivate believers to put their faith into action by giving anonymously to others and to experience the blessing of giving. For the recipients, the goal is to remind them or introduce them, as the case may be, of the good news of Jesus Christ paying their debt for them and to spur the recipient on to either finding out more about Jesus and/or to participate in paid4u.com themselves and to perpetuate the paid4u.com concept in a multiplying effect.
At the heart of paid4u.com are the simple and inexpensive business cards. These cards are designed to not inform, but rather pique the curiosity of the recipient. The card only contains the text “paid4u.com” in the consistent “Trebuchet MS” font on a contemporary solid green background color and nothing on the back.
Participants are then encouraged to find a way to pay the debt anonymously for another person. This might typically be in a drive-through line at a fast food restaurant where the participant would pay for the order of the car behind them and give a paid4u.com card to the clerk to deliver with the meal to the recipient.
With their meal paid for anonymously, the recipient will be compelled to find out why and with just the paid4u.com business card as a clue, they will no doubt look up that address on the internet.
There are numerous ways to encourage participants to pay for someone’s debt anonymously. They should be encouraged to be creative. For example, small groups or bible studies could pool their money to have more resource to pay bigger debts for people.
The paid4u.com website is acontemporary and simple site without any flashy design. It will also not be a sermon nor will it attempt to condemn anyone to Hell, but rather It will state in contemporary “non-churchy” language the simple message that they are loved and valued by God and that their debt has been completely paid for by Jesus. It is not an advertisement to join a church, but rather, it is a generic message of hope and salvation. It encourages the reader to seek more information by finding a church in their area and will have a link to a list of participating churches.
The website also has a link to download the artwork for the business cards and various other suggestions and information that helps the reader participate in the concept.
The site also contains a comment log which enables participants and recipients alike to post entries of how paid4u.com has benefited them or how it has impacted their lives. Also, participants are encouraged to post the creative ways of how they paid for someone anonymously to spur others into action.

The scope of paid4u.com is limitless. Rather than use this concept to benefit a single church, by keeping it generic, we can invite the participation of not only all other churches in a city, but the state, nation, and the rest of the world as well. There is nothing limiting about this concept. It simply parallels scriptural teaching and is available for all. The fact that the unique domain name is registered as “paid4u.com”, makes it a central location to clearly and effectively communicate and execute the concept.
There are many personal and spiritual benefits to be gained by this simple concept, but the most important and obvious ones are as follows;
Monetary Benefits, Recognition and Control
It is imperative that paid4u.com in no way causes any monetary benefit or recognition to neither any individual person nor any individual church. At all times and in all ways, glory and honor should be given to God and God alone. Doing so will no doubt change the very nature of the concept and would ultimately lead to its demise. God will honor paid4u.com as long as its motives are pure.
