    by a very small and poor congregation, it's unlikely that the fair market value of their housing will amount to very much.

    •  i don't understand (0+ / 0-)

      there are urban churches in areas that used to be poor where the property values have gone up around them.

      the size of the congregation has nothing to do with the physical location of the church and the housing costs in the area where the church is located

      taking Boston as an example, housing is expensive here.  working for a poor church does not change that.

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
