Whether you are planting a church or growing your ministry, we are here to help you protect what God has called you to lead as you thrive in your calling. Our ministry-minded services and products will empower you to build your God-given dream on a solid legal foundation and stay legally compliant.

Our mission is to empower pastors and ministry leaders to fulfill and protect the God-given dream in their hearts. As a result, we’ve helped over 19,000 churches and ministries over the last 20 years! We are here to help you on your own journey to see your dreams from God fulfilled.

Hear from Pastors and Ministry Leaders that have trusted StartCHURCH:

"This will be the greatest investment you will ever have. It will multiply your ministry in ways you can't even put down on paper."

– Solid Rock of Atlanta

"We want to encourage you. Are you a church planter? Are you starting a ministry? Are you ready to answer the call of God on your life? Let StartCHURCH help you like they have helped us."

- Pastor Moses Anderson, Communion House

"I would definitely recommend any church or ministry that is serious about stewardship and serious about vision to partner with StartCHURCH. You're adding another layer of eyes of accountability. You're creating a level of transparency with your congregation and the corporate aspects of the entity. We've got God's word on that that he's going to bless that. He's blessed it tremendously for us here at NewGrace. Things have improved, provision has increased, [and we have more] confidence in decision-making.

- Pastor Derek Anglin, NewGrace

Featured Resources

The Together Resource Kit

The 2020-2021 Digital Access Pass is the perfect resource for individual and team training! Now you can bring the main stage experience home to your spouse, team, and church. In this digital resource you will:

  • Hear from national leaders like Andy and Sandra Stanley, Albert Tate, Greg Surratt, Pete Scazzero, Danielle Strickland, and so many more from our 2020 Global Conference in Orlando and 2021 regional conferences
  • Have instant content for staff meetings equipping you and your team in our 2020 and 2021 theme “Together – Pursuing The Great Collaboration” from all five main stage sessions
  • Gain access to future recording from other 2020-2021 events from Exponential

2021 Regional Conferences – “Together: Pursuing the Great Collaboration”

We are going to be TOGETHER, again! Exponential Regionals are returning in 2021 and are designed to make the main stage programming at our global event in Orlando more accessible to church leaders in local geographic areas. These gatherings are for leaders who are unable to attend our national event OR need a more affordable option to bring their entire team. Exponential Regionals conferences are shorter in length than our national event to help leaders save on travel expenses BUT are still filled with the full punch of the national event theme. These gatherings include pre-conference equipping labs and 5 main sessions.

2021 Locations: Washington DC | Southern California | Bay Area | Houston | Chicago
