Have you ever typed an instant message that could be misconstrued or have you ever regretted something you posted online?
Electronic communication can open your ministry to liability in many ways, especially when adults are communicating with minors involved in your youth ministry.
Brotherhood Mutual strongly encourages your ministry to adopt a policy addressing how ministry volunteers and employees will conduct themselves when using electronic media, such as texting or Facebook posts, to talk with young people involved in church activities.
Brotherhood Mutual has created a sample policy and related consent forms that can be modified to suit your ministry. As with any sample policies or forms, please consult a local attorney before putting them into practice.
Thank you for your interest in Brotherhood Mutual. We appreciate the opportunity to provide your church or other ministry with an insurance quote and will reply to your request as soon as possible.
