About Mite Ciphers
Mite Ciphers is a unique service created exclusively to meet the operational services needs of small to medium sized churches and faith-based nonprofit organizations. As Christians, we share our clients’ core values; as professionals, we tailor best practices to meet each client’s specific needs.
Our name is inspired by Mark 12:41-44, the story of the poor widow who gave two small coins or mites, all she had, in sacrifice to God. In mathematics, ci-phers are those who compute and calculate. Thus Mite Ciphers -- professional accountants who manage and safeguard tithes and offerings to the Lord.
