Rave Reviews!

Thank you for the helpful information I am a new pastor getting ready to start a church. Paper work has been done and approved but i wanted to make sure i set things up correctly. I’ve seen so many churches set up and they are a HOT Mess… I did not want to follow in any of their foot steps. ” As my grand mother alway said….” If you start out the right than you will end up right.” thanks!!!!!!
