Our mission is to protect your church.
By proactively assisting churches navigate through the legal and regulatory world we live in, our desire is to help churches (just planted to well established.) By generating legal and best practice documents, with a suite of online tools to save you time, we can also provide on call attorney services to manage events and crises which are outside of a church or pastor’s field of expertise.
We are attorneys who specialize in the area of Church Law, from formation to lawsuits and everything in between. We are here to serve the small local church, providing affordable access to sound legal, business, and financial counsel, enabling your church, ministers, and volunteers to spend less time doing paperwork and more time doing ministry.
Church Counsel is here to reduce the burden on the pastor, ministry staff, and volunteers. We can provide the needed combination of live attorney support, web access to our most requested services, and apps for your tablet or smartphone to keep the church doing ministry and reaching the world for Jesus Christ, instead of doing paperwork.
We do this because our mission is to serve the local church so they have more time to do ministry – that is it. Time is our most valuable asset and also our biggest limitation. Church Counsel was formed by an attorney with a passion for the local church who wants to maximize the time of those doing ministry and relieve the burden of doing things they are not as well adapted to do.
