Tell us about Churches Incorporated.

Churches Incorporated offers an in-depth look at the inner workings of church organizations and the human beings behind church leadership, revealing eye-opening experiences and challenging preconceptions about spirituality and authority.

It addresses a wide array of topics, from the decline in church attendance to the psychological effects of churches on individuals, providing a comprehensive and enlightening understanding of the role of churches in today’s society.

The aim is to bring to light issues and topics that are usually left untouched by Sunday schools, Bible classes, and even preachers.

What inspired you to write Churches Incorporated?

Churches, in and of themselves, are a symbol of our right to worship the way we choose.

So, after seeing so many dysfunctional churches, and the brokenness and disappointment of churchgoers, I wanted to write this book to help people understand the inner workings of corporate church leadership regimes in order to bring about what might have and could have happened within the church environment.

This text reminds readers how to care about each other, bringing them back to God’s grace and core principles.

How did your background and experience influence your writing?

As the son of a pastor, I can offer unique insight and truth into church leadership, the experiences of pastors’ children, and the impact of church decisions on societal norms and mores.

As an experienced author and business executive with over 30 years of experience, I have developed the skills necessary to communicate what I’ve learned in a meaningful way to challenge conventional thinking and reveal important truths that can help others lead a more fulfilled, purposeful life.

What is one message you would like readers to remember?

My goal is to help readers heal from the disappointment, brokenness or emptiness left by having a broken church corporate relationship.

I challenge readers to think about what it truly means to be a Christian, and encourage believers to reconnect with their faith in order to experience a real change in their lives and communities.
