Protecting Your Ministry

The church policy and procedure documents below are samples and demonstrative only. The purpose of these documents are to help churches address important topics and to ask the right questions in preparing their own policies and procedures. Each individual church is unique in its membership, staff, polity, campus layout and location.  Each organization should tailor the policies and procedures to meet the needs of its particular group and faith tradition. Including scriptural references is encouraged, although not legally required.

Disclaimer: The information contained in these documents is general in nature and is not intended to provide, or be a substitute for, legal analysis, legal advice, or consultation with appropriate legal counsel. You should not act or rely on information contained in this document without seeking appropriate professional advice. By printing and distributing this guide, the Greenville Baptist Association is not providing legal advice.
