Planting a church? Get the #1 Church Plant software

Get your legal foundation right today!

Church and ministry leaders don't always know the steps they need to take to update their governing documents. We hear it time and again, "We've been a church for 20 years, and I know our bylaws are out of date, but I don't know how to update them!' or "Help! The IRS revoked our ministry's tax-exempt status! How do we get it back?"

If you're facing similar problems, we're here to give you a proven solution!

The GetRIGHT Program will provide you with a complete, step-by-step guide to update your governing documents and secure your legal foundation. It's time to protect what God has called you to lead by getting right today!

Let us guide you!

We're here to help you along the complex path of legal compliance so you can overcome any obstacles you may face and protect your calling.

With the GetRIGHT Program, we can assist you with the following areas:

Governing Documents Update

Have you made significant changes to your organization's articles of incorporation, voting membership, or constitution and bylaws? If so, you may need a governing documents update to stay compliant. We will help you update your governing documents and file the necessary paperwork with the IRS to get on the right path!


Has your organization's purpose and activities significantly changed? If so, it's time to file for reclassification. For example, a ministry may shift its activities to become a church. In such cases, a ministry should reclassify as a church since churches are not required to file Form 990 annually. With the GetRIGHT Program, we can help you reclassify your organization into the proper classification.


Has the IRS revoked your ministry's tax-exempt status? This is often the case for ministries that fail to file Form 990s for three consecutive years. But there's good news! Our GetRIGHT Specialists will take you through the reinstatement process to protect what God's called you to lead!

Charity Registration

Do you need to file for charity registration? To receive tax-deductible donations, you must register your church or ministry according to your state's guidelines. Each state has its own rules regarding nonprofit registration—including varied forms, fees, and exemptions. Through the GetRIGHT Program, our team will do the heavy lifting for you and take the guesswork out of the process!


Are you looking to legally dissolve your church or ministry? Ministries and churches may come to an end for various reasons, and we are here to support you in the dissolution process. Change can be challenging—you don't need the added stress of tackling dissolution on your own. We will assign a GetRIGHT specialist to work hard on your behalf to take care of this complex process for you!

Name Change

Does your church or ministry need to undergo an official name change? Occasionally due to vision or leadership changes within an organization, or a church merger, a change of name is necessary. We will take you through the detailed process of legally changing your name to reflect your organization's new goals!
