Avoiding Church Lawsuits

No church enjoys going to court. Legal disputes are messy, and sometimes unavoidable. However, your church can create proactive procedures to avoid common reasons why churches most often go to court, and to resolve legal conflict. Creating—and enforcing—the effective policies and procedures will show a court that your church is doing everything possible to keep your people safe, a strong defense should your church ever be brought to court. In this download you'll learn about the top five reasons churches end up in court, how to resolve arguments peacefully, and how to hire a lawyer.
