Church Risk Management Guide

Ministries are faced with dozens of issues that can cause disruptions, loss of resources, and heartache.

This guide helps you recognize areas of risk and learn how to proactively address them in your organization. Highlights include:

  • Primary areas of concern
  • Establishing a church safety and security team
  • Child/youth sexual misconduct
  • Financial protection
  • Emergency preparation
