Primer for local churches on legal and finance issues from Church Law & Tax

A 21 page e-book, Protecting our Ministry with Integrity, is available from Church Law & Tax, which is the writing platform for Richard Hammar. If you are new to leadership in the church world, he is one of the leading writers on legal issues in the community.
