Church Law

Churches face a variety of issues that are unique to the context of a house of worship. From child safety concerns, to property issues, employment issues, church governance and many other issues, churches are faced with a broad array of legal problems. We are dedicated to helping pastors, church administrators, lay leaders and others learn how to improve the legal health of their church.


Have you wondered about the legal health of your church? As a way to help our churches assess some of their basic legal needs, we have developed a short Self-Assessment Quiz.

*Note: While this quiz is a good tool to help you assess some of the pressing legal needs of your church, because of its brevity it naturally cannot cover all of the legal issues churches face. We always advise that you seek legal counsel to discover the full range of legal issues that may be facing your church. However, this self-assessment quiz can serve as a starting point.

While churches can take many preventative legal measures to protect themselves and keep their church out of court, there are many instances where a church may need to hire an attorney to help them.

If your church is in a situation where you need a Christian attorney in your area who can help your church with legal issues, please give us a call.
