Insurance & Payroll Services / Information & Resources That Your Church Needs



Payroll Services

For experts in church/pastor payroll, we recommend one of the following Payroll Providers. Their costs are VERY reasonable!  In fact, I'm sure that you will find that you cannot afford to continue to pay and prepare required government tax returns for what they charge.  Plus the liability risks are shifted to the Service Provider!
