Things To Consider When Insuring Your Church

A growing ministry can touch many lives. Even though the ministry is about changing the lives of others for the better, there are risks that it faces every time the establishment opens its doors. Here are some things to consider when purchasing insurance for your religious organization.

Top considerations

Our agents want to make sure that you get the coverage your organization requires. One consideration is professional liability coverage. If the pastor decides to offer counseling or other services, there may be risks in doing so. Professional liability coverage minimizes those risks. Property damage is another risk. Crimes like vandalism and theft can be costly. A policy will assist with getting the building restored and repaired as quickly as possible. Natural disasters can make it difficult to continue service or resume the normal church schedule. There could also be risks if there is a traveling or visiting ministry that congregants rely on, there are risks that must be considered for passengers that have to be addressed. If a congregant or member mistakenly gets injured, the person can choose to sue the organization. A liability policy will protect the organization if a lawsuit happens. The church may offer daycare services for its members. These services can really expose the church to additional risks if a child is injured. A policy can protect the church from potential lawsuits if the employee intentionally or unintentionally harms a child.

Importance of protecting the organization

Churches minimize chances of out-of-pocket costs that could become a burden if the organization is held responsible. The claims can be settled quickly once they our filed, meaning that the repairs, medical treatment or other expenses are handled with little red tape. The organization can be protected in the event of a claim the organization may be facing.

The organization must be protected regardless of its size. The right insurance policy can offer adequate protection to prevent the church from being legally exposed or at risk of being financially crippled as a result of an incident. Scheduling a consultation with a representative to discuss your organizational needs is the first step to getting the institution properly protected.
