Simple Ministry Reminders

As your partner in Risk Management there are a lot of important things we advise you to do. We spend a lot of time talking to ministries about issues they are facing, researching problems, precedents and trying to discover solutions on behalf of you, our clients.  

One of the topics we feel is most prevalent is Sexual Misconduct. Last year there were over 11,000 law suits against churches, the number one being sexual misconduct claims. The key to protecting your ministry against these allegations is to remove the liability from the ministry and place it on the perpetrator, not the location.  The following are things your ministry should have in place and we’ve got them ready for you to implement.  In our Risk Management Document section you will find all the forms mentioned below. Simply click on each one and an automatic download will begin of an editable word doc.

Sexual Misconduct Policy
Want to know how to conduct a sexual misconduct meeting with your staff? Head over to our video library for a tutorial on this very topic! Download the sexual misconduct policy and check out this blog for in depth reading. Startling Statistics

Background Checks
In order to have sexual misconduct coverage in place the carriers require you to conduct background checks on any member who works with the youth. You can find these forms in our library, as well as a fact sheet for Intellicorp, a national background check company.  Check out this blog for further in depth reading. Why Background Checks Should No Longer Be Considered Optional

Meeting Minutes 
When adopting any policy it is important to have documentation. We recommend documenting this documentation in your monthly meeting minutes. Check out this blog for further reading. Meeting Minutes

As always, if you have questions about where to find a document, how to implement a policy, or you need something and aren't sure we have something for it, please give us a call!

Welcome to our Risk Management Minute Blog! My name is Jessica and I joined the First Insurance Group team in 2008. I began working in the Church Division in 2009 and as part of my job began to learn about the specific needs Churches face in regards to Risk Management. We have made it our goal to not only supply you with relevant information, but to take the work out of risk management by creating forms for you to print and use. Have questions on a topic we have yet to cover? Let me know! I will gladly do the research and provide any information I can.
