Offering advice is a natural result from your daily activities, as leaders you are often sought out for your perspective and wisdom. An unfortunate side effect of this is that it exposes your leadership and organization to lawsuits if that advice is perceived to have provided a negative outcome. Professional Liability provides protection for possible damages that result but more importantly it also provides coverage for the legal defense of these claims, even when they are false and unwarranted.
There are many other coverage options depending on the need of your House of Worship, for example if you own and operate vehicles, have employees, or are concerned about crime there are specialized coverages to address those needs. A quick conversation with one of our agents will help you determine which protections are right for your organization.
