Start Your Church With a Solid Legal Plan

by | Jun 15, 2018 | Charisma Archive

Dear Pastor,

I’ve spent the last 15 years talking with thousands of men and women with a vision to start a church or ministry. In those conversations, I noticed that a theme kept coming to the surface. Many had great names, great church growth strategies and even great locations, but what surprised me was how often the same missing component was evident in most of their visions. In fact, most of these passionate, excellent, anointed leaders were almost completely unaware of this missing component.

At StartCHURCH, we started calling it “the elephant in the room”!

We found the great weakness of many churches and ministries today is they are not started on a strong legal foundation!

The truth is many of today’s brightest and best leaders are building their churches and ministries on shaky foundations.

Through no fault of their own, their legacies lack the understanding of legal compliance that helps shield and protect their ministries. Don’t walk this path alone. Let us help you!

It became a passion in our hearts at StartCHURCH to help pastors and ministry leaders protect what God has given them to lead.

In our e-book, you will find a proven, easy-to-follow plan that will help you deal with the elephant in the room and to ensure your ministry has the right start.

I want you to know, I believe in you! I believe that God has called you for such a time as this to make a difference in the kingdom of God. It’s my heart’s desire that this resource helps strengthen and empower you to have a foundation strong enough to hold up the dreams God has put in your heart.

May the Lord bless you as you run hard after Him!
