The common link between nearly all of these is C T Corporation.

C T Corporation System looks like it may be a compliance/collection network of some kind.

OMCRU INVESTMENTS, LLC was also formed, it seems, in Colorado, back on 9/30/2011

aka On Mission Charitable Remainder Unitrust

For those of us that don't have a trust or an LLC, let alone multiple of either, what is the significance of changing back and forth between the states? Lower overhead one place over the other?

Otherwise, why does it matter?

Just curious.

I say it has everything to do with some type of tax advantage, or to simply muddy the waters even further as to prevent the trail ever directly being traced back to him.

There are other variables beside taxes that might apply, too. For instance, a non-profit in Washington might have to list its officers whereas in Texas it would not be under any obligation to publicly list its officers if it opted not to. That means that finding out who the officers of the current iteration of Acts 29 are might take considerable effort.

CT Corp is a standard entity used by most every public company and private company with assets over $10 million to receive any and all legal documents, which are then forwarded onward to the appropriate parties. Having been involved in multiple lawsuits, both Federal & State, CT Corp is almost always listed as the party to whom to serve papers. They are the registered agent. Nothing strange about that. However, great work on the production of documents at the various secretary of state offices and the tax assessor offices. Most mega pastors hide behind trust funds and 3rd party transactions to hide their identity. Andy Stanley, Jentzen Franklin in my area to name 2 such pastors living in multi million dollar homes. It has become the norm for pastors to purchase said homes because they have made so much money from their book sales. When Andy was 39, (16 yrs ago), he was already living in a multi million home due to being co-author with his father Charles and receiving royalties to purchase said home. And of course Charles Stanley made his 1st million selling Amway as a Diamond Distributor in the early days of his ministry. But remember, the money was not made actually selling the Amway products, it was via motivational tapes and merchandise that brought in the money, and in those days, Charles Stanley (dating back 45 yrs) was fantastic at motivating and public speaking outside church. We should just stop purchasing from the mega pastors and get back to scripture. Nothing more pure.
