Welcome to ChurchCounsel.com. Our mission is to protect your church. By proactively assisting churches navigate through the legal and regulatory world we live in, helping churches, from Plant to Established, by generating legal and best practice documents, a suite of online tools to save you time, and provide on call attorney services to manage events and crises which arise and are outside of a church or pastors field of expertise.
Who are we? 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.
Why do you need Church Counsel? Church Counsel is here to reduce the burden on the pastor, ministry staff, and volunteers and 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 Chris, not doing paperwork.
Why do we do this? 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 our biggest limitation. ChurchCounsel 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 things they are not well adapted to do. Most pastors, ministers, or church staff are not lawyers, business people, and most do not have the gift of finances. However, those are our gifts, and we want to utilize what God has given us to free up your time so you can impact the lives in and around your mission field where God has placed you.
