The Church is under ever-increasing scrutiny, from its own congregation, from the media, from the government, along with other persons claiming to have been harmed by it. The news headlines are full of religious organizations, once thought immune from lawsuit, rocked by damage claims and huge, and sometimes fatal, monetary judgments. The perils are real. Tragically, the constant drumbeat of lurking dangers can become persistent white noise, unremarked, unheard, unheeded. Needed plans for necessary risk management are easily lost in a rip tide of bad tidings.
The Church Law Group is devoted to producing usable and effective materials and timely information for its clients. We believe proper risk management begins with the thoughtful creation of an organization that can operate safely and effectively, while working diligently to avoid problems, and survive a legal attack, should it ever come.
