Sending a W-2 to a Minister's requested non-profit for the service he rendered .

If a leader receives a check betweem $10,000-$20,000.00 for services rendered for the year from a non-profit religious organization for providing leadership, can he or she direct that his or her W-2 be written in the name of his local chuch or a non-profit organization instead of him or her personally for tax avoidance purposes?

I was under the impression that a W-2 can only be made out to the leader (employee) if he has a 501c 3 organization such as "Brown's Ministry" or the likes.

Please advise.
