What is D&O coverage?

Leaders care about managing their ministries well. Yet, even when making decisions that align with the best interests of the ministry, lawsuits could arise that challenge those decisions. If sued, their personal assets could be at stake. 

Directors and Officers Liability Coverage protects against financial damage claims based on the decisions made by ministry leaders. It adds a layer of protection for your leaders and your ministry. It can show your leaders that caring for them is top of mind for your ministry.  

These coverage descriptions are intended to help ministry leaders better understand Brotherhood Mutual’s MinistryFirst® insurance program. It does not provide insurance coverage of any kind, nor does it modify the terms of any Brotherhood Mutual policy. For complete insurance coverage details, please refer to actual policy documents. Coverage for actual claims will be based on applicable policy documents applied to the individual facts of an actual claim event. Some coverages may not be available in all states.
