Posted Sep. 24, 2018

Who will decide what happens to your loved ones and assets tomorrow—if something were to happen to you today? Will it be you or the state? “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:21). As Christians, we should fear nothing, for neither death nor life will separate us from the love of God, in Christ Jesus. We have complete freedom to boldly face right now the challenges our loved ones will face when we’re gone. If you’ are a good steward of these decisions, it will bless those you care about most. Your legacy of care will be a gift to those you love—a powerful testament to your trust in God’s promises. The National Center for Life and Liberty developed this framework to help YOU decide the future of your loved ones and assets.

Vacation Bible School: Top 10 Legal Considerations for Maximizing Ministry while Minimizing Risk

Posted Apr. 1, 2018

Most churches reach more young people (and their parents) during vacation Bible school (VBS) than any community event of the year. People with no other connection to your church will be on your property, interacting with your VBS staff and other parents and children. Countless hours of planning and prayer are typically spent in preparation for VBS activities, but steps to minimize legal liability are often given too little focus. In our lawsuit-prone culture, the NCLL has prepared the ten most important recommendations in a brief, but substantive VBS legal guide available at no cost to you. Download your complimentary guide—Vacation Bible School: Top 10 Legal Considerations for Maximizing Ministry while Minimizing Risk. While no defense removes every risk, addressing these 10 considerations can dramatically decrease the risks of physical harm and ministry liability. Implementing these best-practices also reflect well on your ministry and the cause of Christ—all while helping you operate a successful program with minimal operational distractions.
