So You Want to Start a Ministry, ORMC can help!

Starting a ministry, is like starting any other non-profit organization, and is certainly a leap of faith.  While your goal is to follow the vision God has given you for this ministry, the mechanics are a lot like starting a business.  There are many issues involved in this process.

Among other things, ORMC assists new ministries in getting their organizational structure in place.  This is a critical first step and usually includes two primary tasks:

  • Incorporation as a nonprofit entity in your state, next,
  •  Obtaining 501(c)(3) recognition by the Internal Revenue Service

 Our team works with you, preparing all of the necessary paperwork to get your ministry legally established.  We even represent our work while it's under review by the state and the IRS!

Why Use ORMC?

Because this is an IRS examination and you need a specialist, not a document service. There is a lot more to this than paperwork.  Setting up the structure of a church requires a precise understanding of the laws and compliance requirements involved, as well as the best practices necessary to successfully launch a new ministry.  That's what our team brings to the table.
