Client Testimonials

I don't think I can begin to express how thankful my wife and I are for Corey's diligent work on our behalf and for the cause of Christ! Corey's professional and personal assistance in a time of difficulty and trial was a demonstration of God's love and grace that we will never forget. MinistryCPA is more than just a firm for those in ministry; it is a ministry for those in ministry.

Thank you Corey and Tara for all your work in preparing our current returns and getting us set for next year. We sure are grateful that we get the privilege of working with you. May the Lord richly bless you as you serve Him in this ministry. We look forward to talking to you later this year.

– Minister in Missouri

Hi Corey and Tara. Thank you for your good work. Your attention to detail earlier this year on my back pay saved hundreds if not thousands. So this year I appreciate your services that much more. I hope you both have a great year.

Corey Pfaffe and his staff have been helping us with our annual church audit needs for over 10 years. Corey comes every summer to make sure we are fully prepared when it comes to the reports our mortgage lender requires from us. Tara Watterson also helps us submit our annually required forms each year. Their knowledge of church tax law and requirements has helped us many times over the years. We truly appreciate their ability and willingness to serve in this valuable ministry.
