Five Things to Consider When Purchasing Insurance
When it comes to protecting your ministry, there are many steps that should be taken. One of the most important aspects of ensuring your organization is protected from a severe loss is choosing the correct insurance policy to fit your needs. A common practice is choosing a company or policy based on price. However, it is important to consider your needs and values when weighing different insurance options as well. Consider the following five questions when shopping for insurance:

With good weather and vacations from school and work, summer brings many mission opportunities for churches. This article addresses safety considerations for short-term mission trips, including trips out of country.

Creating a Safe Environment for Children

One important aspect of a church ministry is providing a safe setting for the children. Between nurseries, daycares and playgrounds, there is a great need to offer this type of safe space. To help you, the risk management experts at SafeChurch have created a Child Safety for Nurseries, Daycares and Playgrounds training module. This training module includes a safety video, along with information on equipment and toy safety, daycare and nursery inspection, and playground safety. Create a safer environment for the children in your church by learning more about inspection and safety criteria, preventing sexual misconduct and the proper use of background checks.

Shield Your Church from Winter Water Damage


During the winter months, your building is susceptible to water damage due to the colder temperatures. Once the temperature drops below freezing, the pipes of your building could become frozen and possibly burst. Additionally, the formation of ice dams on the roof can cause damage to walls, ceiling, and insulation. Taking the proper precautions can help safeguard your church against frozen pipes and ice dams.
