The Four “Trapdoors” That Will Close Your Ministry

With ever-increasing threats against churches, from both inside and outside, pastors and volunteer leaders must be “as wise as serpents and as gentle as doves” in developing internal policies and procedures and establishing a good governance structure. Today, there are three major operational areas where churches should develop (and follow) written policies in order to reduce the potential risk of lawsuits that could close the church’s doors. Those areas are:

  1. safety and security;
  2. child protection; and
  3. potential integration of registered sex offenders.

In addition to these policies, a church, whether incorporated or unincorporated, must also establish a clear governance structure which outlines the duties and responsibilities of the members and leadership within the church. Ambiguous governance structures increase the likelihood that a court will have to sort out any internal disputes, which is an expensive and risky proposition.
