What do you do if your meal ticket is in danger of being revoked because your brother/brother-in-law's molestation scandal put the family's reality show in jeopardy? If your names are Jill and Derick Dillard, you open a ministry.

According to a report on Radar Online, Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard filed paperwork to start a new business titled "Dillard Family Ministries." The move is viewed as the couple creating a "Plan B" should the series "19 Kids and Counting" end up cancelled amid the molestation scandal involving eldest Duggar sibling Josh.

A week prior to Dillard filing the paperwork for his new ministry, he reportedly left his job as an accountant for mega-retailer Wal-Mart based in Arkansas.

"This new ministry is their 'Plan B' now that it's unlikely their reality show will be coming back," a source told Radar Online.

Although the nature of the ministry is not known, there is some speculation that it may put the couple back in Nepal where they met.

They are both listed as directors of the company.

Dillard's wife Jill (nee Duggar), has admitted that she was one of the alleged victims of molestation at the hands of her brother Josh.

"They have been carrying what happened to them inside for so long, smiling and pretending nothing was wrong," a friend of the Duggar family told OK! Magazine. "They felt abandoned and betrayed, and they'll probably never forgive Josh or their parents."
