• Introduced an alternative form of ownership to quickly acquire a permanent church home

• Corrected documentation for retirement plans
• Established fully-funded retirement plans

The Lord used Fred and his team in such a powerful way to bless our church. Fred met with our leadership team and his experience and guidance was instrumental in our church receiving the gift of a multi-million dollar facility! As the Pastor of a large urban congregation, I am especially thankful that the Lord uses the giftedness of those outside of our body to accomplish His plan.
