A personal conduct policy makes clear your ministry's position on marriage and interpersonal relationships. May also help when addressing facilities-use questions.
When making decisions and creating policies, churches have unique freedoms that other organizations may not have. What does the law say?

This webinar will address five frequently-asked questions submitted to Brotherhood Mutual’s LegalAssistance team regarding religious freedom and the dilemmas churches may face.
