Churches are changing faster than we realize. With new membership and ministries, its hard to make time to review administrative policies as the church continues growing. Rather than waiting until something goes wrong, having an annual policy review is a prudent and proactive way to avoid unwanted vulnerabilities.
No matter what size your church or ministry may be, you should contact an attorney to review or draft administrative policies in the following areas at least once per year:
- Facilities Management
- Child/Youth Safety
- Volunteer Requirements/Training
- Employment--Hiring Practices, Review Procedures, Payroll
- Internal Governance
