You Get What You Inspect, Not What You Expect Often, because of a Pastor’s Shepherd’s heart, he or she allows things to transpire that probably should not be tolerated. We sometimes give access to those whom have not earned it; we accept excuses for inappropriate behavior; we place people into positions for which they […]
One Thing Your Church Must Always Afford Most Churches in America are not a mega-church. Most of them operate from week to week, struggling to meet their budget and do some type of ministry. As a matter of fact, many have to resort to fund-raisers or excessive offerings, on a weekly or monthly basis […]
Is Your Church Subject to an IRS Audit? I don’t know of any letters or words that strike fear in the heart of individuals like the three dreaded letters, IRS (Internal Revenue Service). It is probably only second to the word “cancer.” Many Churches feel as if they never have to worry about […]

Are Your Extra-Curricular Activities Legal? In our attempts to do ministry and to be known and respected in our communities, Churches have gone to great lengths to get their names before the public. We have hosted social programs, rented our facilities, sought for additional revenue streams, and much more. We have engaged in […]
Who You Call for Advice May be Your Demise I was teaching a Church Management and Tax Conference in West Virginia. One of the Pastors in attendance came to me during the lunch break to inform me of the mess he and his Church was in because of bad advice they had received. […]
Could Your Church Survive the Onslaught In today’s society, the Church world in the USA, has become like a non-expecting, struggling swimmer in shark-infested waters. Just as the swimmer does not know of his or her impending danger until it is too late, it is the same with Churches. Between the IRS, recent Supreme […]
