I would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas to the many who have allowed me to be of help to you over the past seven years. I count it a privilege from God to be able to offer this ministry of helps to small/medium sized independent Baptist churches.
I am currently booking meetings for the first half of 2017. If you would like, or need me to be of service to you, please contact me to set up time in my schedule. If any would be able to consider setting up a monthly support arrangement, I would greatly appreciate it, and would be a continual resource to you in financial areas of your ministry, and even a conduit for legal questions that I can direct to legal services I work with for the benefit of churches. Since this is my primary ministry now, I mention the support option as a help in stabilizing my budget to enable the ongoing research and notifications to you in the future.
The trends I have been seeing for a few years have not been favorable toward clergy and churches. With the recent election, I am hopeful that we will see things improve toward churches, and that recent tax changes for pastors' tax returns may be reversed.
Thank you again for your interest in checking in with this blog. My intent is to have some regular and helpful postings for your benefit. If questions are prompted by something you read, I trust you will contact me for additional information or clarification. Again, enjoy the holidays with family and friends.
Your servant in Christ,
