“Sherry Jackson is one of the bravest, principle-based, reliable Christians I know who is advising pastors and ministries today on ministry finances.  Church Wealth, Ministry Health is a vital tool for managing your church and ministry finances when you are committed to doing everything biblically and also adhering to the rule of law.”

Bishop Wellington Boone, Chief Prelate, Fellowship of International Churches

"Sherry has been a blessing to us in the accounting and financial area. She worked hard to make sure we understand the importance of sound financial policy and procedures and she helped us set up our books and internal controls so that we wouldn't have any business office issues. She is an advocate for keeping the ministry safe and running smoothly.

Sherry Jackson has been helping us with our accounting system needs for several years. She is very professional in her demeanor and serious about making sure that the Body of Christ exudes integrity and good stewardship.

When our church was ready to expand and start new autonomous ministries Sherry was there to lead us through the tedious process of forming a non-profit organization. Her knowledge of the process got us our non-profit status in record time!"

Her teachings and materials have been tested and tried and proven to be essential for those who will hearken. She’s a true battle tested soldier you can count on."

The Problem:

Let’s face the truth...too many churches are plagued with financial challenges that include general business mismanagement, cash flow problems, and tax issues. Many assume that because they are incorporated and have a 501(c)(3) tax status that all is well. “We’re Protected,” many churches mistakenly think.

A great number of the church members are also struggling financially or simply can’t make ends meet, and the pastor and church administrators are well aware of the congregational financial woes. Lack of money makes it hard for congregants to tithe and participate in various ministries, and slows down the move of God in fulfilling the Great Commission.

But what’s not well known and/or not well understood by most administrators and pastors alike is how to gain the insights to create a new financial dynamic and vision for their church or ministry, and how to protect themselves and the church by uncovering the five areas that affect the financial health and wellness of the church.

With church administrators being the loyal servants they are, they don’t what to make waves and challenge the pastor to do what is needed to fix their personal and church financial, business, and tax obstacles. Many times the church staff is unaware of methods to properly navigate specific situations, which can prove costly if the church or ministry continues to operate blindly or in ignorance.

And Pastors are often afraid of transparency--and rightly so--as immature saints and even fellow pastors may share sensitive information with others. So, the shroud of secrecy with the pastor, administrator and sometimes the staff continues, putting the pastor and/or church at serious risk without them even being aware of the dangers of inaction.

Just because you have a CPA or a Lawyer on your board or on call doesn’t mean that you and your church are protected from the many difficulties that churches of all sizes and cultures face on a weekly basis. Unless these professionals are well versed in church business, they are considered general practitioners, possibly lacking the knowledge that will provide damage control if the church gets into a crisis situation.

Many church administrators and pastors assume that all is well, but never consider “The Five Biggest Ministry Mistakes You Can Easily Avoid” and how these mistakes may currently be affecting them--or even worse, how these issues may one day, 5, 10, even 20 years from now...shut their doors for good!

This is where I come in; I offer confidential Financial, Tax and Business Building Programs that address the underlining challenges that pastors, ministries and church congregations face. I solve the problems that lead to the mistakes that 80% of today’s churches are making. Ignoring the truth will not make you free from potential bondage!

The Solution:

As a licensed minister, retired CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, and a former IRS agent, I’m excited about sharing the following information with pastors, ministries and their congregations around the country, because for so long pastors and churches have been both ignored and considered irrelevant or ridiculed because of a few bad apples. Some people are even scaring the small churches and pastors, telling them that they’ll go to jail if they even breathe in the wrong direction. But I’m here to help put pastors and churches at ease by preparing them to handle all types of difficult issues that have been steadily arising in this day and age.

My passion has always been geared toward helping pastors and their congregations. I audited ministers for the last 2 and a half years of my career at the IRS and I’ve worked with pastors and churches in some capacity for going on 25 years. I am very aware of the struggles that you go through:

  • Trying to maintain integrity in the church finances and formulate fair and proper church policy.
  • Trying to develop and maintain strategies to foster church growth and discipleship.
  • Trying to implement sound methods to produce wealth in the church and the congregation.
  • Trying to keep the church’s and the pastor’s personal finances from scrutiny from the IRS, lawsuits and others out to do them harm.

Whether it’s through one-on-one mentoring or group-training sessions, I’ve changed the lives of pastors and churches all over the country by enabling them to:

  • Maintain proper finances and implement fair and balanced church policies.
  • Create strategic plans to win and disciple the neighborhoods.
  • Develop an entrepreneurial spirit in the pastors and congregations so that resources for Kingdom work will flow in with little effort.
  • Avoid being audited, or help them stick it to the IRS if they are audited.
  • Avoid lawsuits from parties within and outside of the church.

Pastor Green, pastor of a church of approximately 100 families, was receiving funds under the guise of a housing allowance but was not earning a salary. Upon engaging me to review the church finances, I immediately educated Pastor Green and the financial team about why this practice was ripe for IRS audit. Upon studying the church and the pastor’s operations, I was able to strike a balance between salary and housing allowance to put Pastor Green and the financial team at ease concerning the funds he received, and I was able to improve the overall operations of the business and administrative offices.
