Within the halls of both Houses of Congress in our Nation’s Capital are lobbyists who are busily attempting to influence the House and Senate in favor of their clients. This has been part of the political process for years.
Although we do not have a professional lobbyist in Washington, D.C. we work diligently with representatives, doing everything within our power, to ensure that there is a voice for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. With current court rulings in some “close-to-home” issues for Pastors, Chitwood & Chitwood are diligently fighting these decisions on behalf of Pastors and Churches all across the USA.
Judge Barbara Crabb of the District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin once again struck down the ministerial housing allowance as an unconstitutional preference for religion. This is currently pending an appeal to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. We will keep our Churches and Pastors abreast of future actions in this important Ministry matter.
In May of 2016, President Obama had issued an order requiring non-ecclesiastical, salaried employees to receive minimum compensation of $47,460.00 per year. We relentlessly saw this through to a satisfactory solution when a Federal Judge in Texas ruled it unconstitutional.
These are just two of the many areas that we took to task for Pastors, Ministers, and Churches across America.
