Safety Solutions

As a church leader you have a duty to provide a safe place for worship and ministry, and to protect your church property. The Insurance Board provides you a variety of resources to help you fulfill your covenant.

Material here is organized by important subjects your church must manage. In each section on the left of this page you will find basic lessons, checklists, forms and links to other useful information.
And you can keep yourself up to date by subscribing to our newsletter, The Steward, and by attending live and interactive webinars on current topics.
