Working Together

A Guide to Employment Practices for Christian Employers

Getting Started with Working Together

The Working Together framework is designed to help your church, school, college, camp, or related ministry review your employee handbook at least annually or to create a handbook from scratch. This microsite includes sample policy language, a summary of employment laws, as well as guidance for hiring, onboarding, and saying goodbye. 

This space is set-up for you to do a self-guided review. Just click on one of the icons above to get started. Then you'll use the navigation tabs on your right (if using a laptop) to populate the different policies and topics. 

If you are working with our Legal Assist team on a handbook review, you'll follow the link prompts that appear on the report they shared with you.

You may copy and paste sample policy text from this site into your own policy documents. You'll see that at the bottom of each sample policy is a reminder to have a licensed attorney in your area review final drafts of your policies.
