About the Organization:

StartCHURCH is a company dedicated to meeting the needs of pastors, leaders, and church boards that have a vision to make a difference in their communities through establishing new churches and ministries. Knowing that churches face increased scrutiny, StartCHURCH answered the call to be a voice to the Body of Christ by educating and empowering men and women of God not only to start their churches, but also to run and manage them better.

StartCHURCH believes in helping those who feel called to leadership within the Body of Christ. To that end, the authors have designed all products and services to aid ministers in fulfilling the call of God on their lives. Most of the resources on the website have been authored by Reverend Raul Rivera, who has over 18 years of extensive experience researching the compliance issues that surround religious and non-profit organizations. Using simple day-to-day language, Raul has created more than 80 effective and user-friendly manuals and compliance software and document packages, such as the StartRIGHT Program, to make church starts and management easier. 

In October of 2006, StartCHURCH began hosting live conferences aimed at reaching pastors and church leaders on a personal level. In the years since StartCHURCH started hosting the conferences, thousands of pastors and church leaders have come together to hear Raul's vision for the business side of church in the 21st century. His personal experiences as a pastor, coupled with his years of consulting experience, make the conference an engaging time filled with fun and encouragement.
