What is Church Insurance?

Church Insurance is protection designed for the unique coverage needs of churches and other religious organizations. Whether you need insurance to protect your church property, employees or vehicles, choosing the right coverage is vital to ensure that your organization remains healthy financially.

Common Church Insurance coverages

General Liability – A common coverage for churches. It protects against a variety of situations such as a worshipper becoming injured on a slippery floor.

Business Owners Policy (BOP) – Offers both liability coverage and protection for your church building and property.

Commercial Auto – Liability and physical damage coverage for church vans, busses or other vehicles used in your organization. This can include vehicles used for charity events, running errands and transporting passengers.

9 Key Risk Areas

Good risk management starts with asking tough questions about your ministry’s practices and operations. Here are nine areas to consider when developing a risk management plan for your church:

Accident Prevention:

Are your sidewalks well lighted, dry, and covered with non-slip material? Are walkways and doors kept free of obstructions? Are parking lots safe? Is playground equipment maintained?

Childcare:

Do you use a paging or other system to ensure children return only to authorized parents? Do you do a background check on all of your workers and volunteers?

Fire Protection:

Does your church have a fire alarm system and fire extinguishers readily available? Are your fire sprinklers maintained?

Transportation Dangers:

Does your church own vehicles that are well maintained? Do you use volunteer drivers? Do they have adequate insurance? Are they trained to drive large vans or buses?

Counseling:

Does your church (or the individual counselors) carry professional liability insurance? Do you have a policy that covers counseling activities?

Finances/Payroll:

Are dual signatures required for all checks above small amounts? Does your church file the appropriate tax forms for all employees, including W-2s and 1099s?

Volunteer Selection & Training:

Does your church thoroughly screen volunteers who will be driving church vehicles or working with children? Do you supervise volunteers and train them in their responsibilities?

Security:

Does your church have an electronic security system in place? Do you have a strictly enforced key monitoring system? Do you have adequate lighting around your doors, parking lots, and at the rear of your buildings?

Church Employees:

Do you have up-to-date hiring policies? Do you provide ongoing training? Do you have a sexual harassment policy?

Already have Church Insurance? Switching is easy

It might be time to switch insurers whenever the service that your existing insurer provides doesn’t meet your needs. For example, if you have a poor claims experience or an unexplained rate increase, it might be time to consider other options

If you cancel a previous policy before a new policy is effective, you could run into some serious financial problems.
