The Corporation Sole
Looking to start a Church or Ministry? The Corporation Sole is currently the only way a Church can organize its finances whereas the Church will NOT be under the restrictive laws of 501c3 (that limits Churches and their freedom of speech and politics) but rather the law of 508c1a.

If your looking to start a Church and wanting to be free from the restrictive laws of 501c3, then this book is for you! A Corporation Sole is one of the rarest; least talked about and most advantageous form of incorporating a ministries assets in the world. Understand that a Corporation Sole is NOT you’re Church. It is an incorporated Office (or Title of the Office) of a church or religious organization. It is established solely to manage the Churches assets, finances, and day to day financial operations. It is a Corporation ‘Sole’ because the Office is filled by only one person – (who is typically the head of the church or spiritual organization). Currently, the Corporation Sole is the only known way that a Church can organize its finances whereas the Church itself will NOT be under the jurisdiction of 501c3 but rather the law of both 26 U.S.C § 508(c)(1)(a) and 26 U.S.C § 6033(3)(A)(1-3). Both of these laws not only mandatorily exempt the Church from taxation but also mandatorily exempt the Church from being required to file annual returns to the IRS. It cannot be understated how incredibly vital this book is to every Pastor in America. If you we're looking for a way to free your Church from the restrictive rules governing 501c3 Churches, then this book is for you.
