    In our conversations with many of you, you told us you wanted a Church Law & Tax webinar as often as once a month. We’ve responded, planning at least 10 webinars for the year ahead. Many of you also indicated you’d like the opportunity to have more time for questions and answers at the end of the webinars. We hear you, and we’re committed to finding ways we can incorporate more Q&A into all of the upcoming webinars. Our upcoming series also reflects the topics many of you suggested, often presented by well-liked and well-respected speakers you requested.

    Without further ado, here is the current lineup for the Church Law & Tax 2019 Webinar Series. Mark your calendars, sign-up for our five free Church Law & Tax eNLs, and bookmark this page for updates throughout the year ahead:
