Does Your Church Maintain Insurance?

Today, a growing number of church trustees, board members, and other senior administrative staff officers appreciate the importance of obtaining specialized insurance coverage. Just like other institutions, houses of worship and religious organizations sometimes require insurance protection. Since these entities depend upon human beings to carry forward their mission, churches sometimes require funds to pay for accidental injuries and/or liabilities arising from court actions.

Some Useful Insurance Coverage Provisions

Houses of worship, just like most business enterprises, frequently welcome members of the general public onto their premises. A need for emergency funds may arise unexpectedly as a result of accidents or altercations. Just consider some of the most common situations in which church insurance policies offer assistance:

Accidental Injuries: Accidents do sometimes occur during worship services or church-related activities. Many religious institutions conduct educational programs for young people, as well as a variety of fundraising charitable special events. Mishaps may occur during church sponsored activities or on church owned realty. For example, fender benders sometimes happen in crowded church parking lots. A cake raffled at a charity auction may sit outside a refrigerator too long and inadvertently cause food poisoning. Indeed, an assortment of common accidents and mishaps sometimes impact people on church-owned properties. Even houses of worship sometimes face lawsuits from injured plaintiffs seeking compensation for unsafe or negligent conditions.

Liability: Just like private individuals, many churches encounter liability for decisions made by their trustees or governing boards or administrators. For example, when religious denominations split, property disputes sometimes arise concerning the allocation of various church properties between the separating congregations. Individual board members may also face litigation arising from allegations of improper or illegal conduct. For a variety of reasons, most religious organizations today benefit by maintaining liability insurance coverage in place.

What Our Clients Have to Say

"I have been an emergency medicine physician for 25 years, living in the Atlanta suburbs for 6 years now. Needless to say, I have an eye for detail and a HUGE respect for those professionals with similar attributes. On our initial encounter, Nolan impressed me with his professionalism and persistence. Most importantly, however, was his knowledge base and obvious competence. I have dealt with many insurance companies over the years, and equally as many agents. By far, Nolan Jackson truly represents the select few, in my humble opinion, who truly have their clients best interest at the forefront of their business model. I can recommend him without reservation; you will not be disappointed!"

My husband and I had been unhappy with our insurance company for some time, we added security systems to our homes and when we called our insurance company in hopes of getting a better rate nothing changed. We then began our search for a new company.

After sending out several questionnaires from several websites Nolan Jackson Insurance was the first to respond, not only with an upbeat attitude, but he was so helpful in earning our business.

We could not be more pleased with the way in which he has handled all of our questions as well as our needs. His knowledge of his profession, as well as being able to help guide us through what we needed is second to none. His continued customer service is something you do not find often in today’s world typically once someone writes a policy that’s the end of hearing from them, with Nolan it is everything from the original information to making sure that we received all the follow up paperwork for our files.
