You weren’t called into ministry for the paperwork.
Welcome to ChurchShield. Our accounting, payroll, compliance, and other services were designed specifically for churches. They’ll help you save money and gain efficiency – all while staying compliant with governmental regulations. In the end, that means you’re free to focus on what really matters in your ministry – reaching people.
We have the expertise, resources, and capabilities to manage the tasks that take up your time so you can be free to minister.
We are here to help answer your questions. We will help you outline a plan to be successful behind the scenes so you can focus on serving others.
We specialize in helping you navigate complex regulations as well as take advantage of available benefits.
Outsourcing your church’s accounting can be a very wise, practical decision. Not only does the church save money and your employees save time, but you also gain access to years of valuable church-specific accounting expertise. As a result, you are able to keep your focus where it belongs – your ministry.
Tax & Consulting
Our tax professionals are well-versed in tax law to ensure your return is prepared accurately while leveraging the available ministerial tax benefits. Our goal is to develop long-term personal relationships with our clients, make sure we understand their specific tax issues, and assist with planning so they are positioned in the best possible scenarios for the future.
Payroll & HR
Church payroll has unique laws, benefits, and exemptions that make it different from traditional, and corporate payroll. It is important that your payroll is reviewed and processed by a firm who knows these laws to ensure that your church remains compliant, while also ensuring your team is receiving the most from these unique benefits. In addition to payroll processing, we also offer numerous HR resources to help make related administrative tasks more straightforward and less time-consuming. Whether you need full HR support – or just a little help here and there – we can deliver. From ready-made templates and customized documents, to assisting you with interviews, new hires, and more, we’re dedicated to providing what you need.
Our insurance professionals are trained to maximize your employees’ coverage while safeguarding your bottom line. And because we also specialize in tax planning, we can parlay our efforts into maximizing health savings accounts, pursuing high deductible health plans, and utilizing accountable reimbursement plans.
Churches and nonprofits face specific regulations that can seem complicated and hard to navigate. To understand today’s rules – from IRS nonprofit compliance, to compensation, to retirement – you need specialized help. That’s why we’re here.
You focus on people. We focus on paperwork.
We would consider it a privilege to serve you with whatever administrative and compliance needs you may have. Our goal is to provide you with a professional, knowledgeable staff that makes stressful tasks routine as well as providing a consistent resource for you on an ongoing basis. We desire to approach every task with faith, competence, and ensure our clients always have confidence not only in the process, but also in the results. Regardless of the size of your organization, our services can be tailored to meet your needs and budget. We are a complete outsource solution and endeavor to ensure that the benefit we provide our clients always outweigh the costs. By handling your accounting, tax, and compliance needs, we want to help you keep your focus on ministry. Simply put, we’re here so you can be free to minister.
