Church Government and Administration Information
This page was developed to provide churches and church administrators with vital information on rapidly changing trends affecting churches and nonprofit ministries. It is my hope that the information will be beneficial to you.
I am a church consultant from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. My work and ministry experience includes 15 years in full-time ministry, working as a pastor and church administrator. I worked for a number of years with a regional CPA firm which emphasizes work with ministers and churches.
As a sole practitioner working from my home, I have served hundreds of clients across the United States, primarily in the Southeast and Midwest. I assist churches in setting up their government and administration, file for exempt status, and keep things in order by providing annual reviews and consultations. I also have written several books and manuals, and more are planned. In addition, I am producing a seminar, The Church and the IRS, which will be presented later this year.
