Rooted (GNJUMC Annual Conference 2019)

Webinar | Could your Church use some extra income?

Presentation & Key Takeaways

  • Reach out to Kristen Labbe for assistance with the Employee Retention Credit. The program has changed over time and we believe every church may be eligible for some credit; Kristen’s team will assist with the process.  There is no cost to the church unless a credit is approved; they get a portion of the credit ($200/eligible employee)
  • Steeplecom is pursuing several opportunities for our churches to have alternative sources of income:  Cell Towers, battery back-up systems (providing power back to the grid), electric vehicle charging stations.  Nothing for you to do here …. Tom (Steeplecom) has a full list of our churches; if/when a church is sought after by the companies Tom is working with, he will reach out to your DS to explain the opportunity.
  • ( is an immediate opportunity for any church that has unused space they may want to rent out. It could be as small as a broom closet to a full wing.  This partner helps get you connected with people who may want to rent the space.  Tom’s team can assist you if needed.
