Another Pastor and Church Prevail with TXPC engaging local bureaucracy

Thank you Dave Welch and the Texas Pastor Council team for helping me solve an issue in just two weeks that I’ve been dealing with for five months.

I have been serving as a pastor in Beaumont TX since 1998. Jefferson Central Appraisal District decided in 2024 to overstep their boundaries by removing two of the church parsonage’s off of tax exemption after being exempt since 2006.

After writing a letter, completing their questionnaire, as well as, making many phone calls with no response from them other than another form to fill out, I spoke with Dave about the matter. He and his team went to work on my behalf. Within two weeks, the appraisal district called me apologizing and reinstated the tax exemption status.

“Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs‬ ‭11‬:‭14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

If you are not a part of the Texas Pastor Council, why not?

Thank you Dave.
