CHURCH ADVISORY SERVICES


The Financial Stewardship team is available to consult with pastors, church boards, treasurers and finance committees about their tax and compliance-related questions. Our goal is to keep your church and pastoral staff in compliance with the IRS. Consultations may be held in our Troy, MI offices, on the telephone, or on site at your church or retreat center.

ADVISORY PLANS - Personal & Church

Now you or your church can take advantage of the full range of Financial Stewardship services for an entire year at an affordable price that fits your church’s budget. Five plan levels are available to fit different sized churches.  All plans are offered on a full 12-month basis. For example, if you start your plan service on April 15, your service lasts until April 15 one year later. 


Phone Consulting Plan - personal or church

Our staff is available for short-term consultations over the telephone as well as more involved research.  Please call our toll-free number (800-362-1837).  While we are happy to share our answers with you, keep in mind that, like the IRS, we cannot guarantee the validity of this advice without the proper length of time to gather all of the necessary facts.  These sessions may be paid for by credit card.  The following schedule will apply:
