Advice for Religious Entrepreneurs


Starting a Religious Organization

Although religious organizations aren't businesses, religious startups have many features in common with business startups, including the need to invest time and effort in planning.

As you begin to lay the foundation for your religious organization startup, you will need to consider the organization's mission, governance and leadership structure.

Since religious organizations are usually nonprofits, you will also need to take into account how the organization will generate enough revenue to cover salaries, utilities, and other overhead costs.

Finally, you will need to address the requirements for the legal formation of your organization. Despite their nonprofit status, churches, mosques, synagogues and other religious organizations are exempt from some of the typical requirements for nonprofit organizations. Consult a lawyer to determine how to bring your new organization into full legal compliance.
