Resource [Staffing/Employment Topic] http://www.lcmc.net/congregational-resources/feed?topic=66 The "congregational resources" listed on our website are offered for your consideration.  They are listed here because they are currently offered by one of our LCMC congregations or pastors, or have been used by one of our congregations or pastors.  Each ministry comes with a "letter of recommendation".  That they are listed does not imply an endorsement by the Board of Trustees, the Ministry Board or the staff of LCMC, and there is no claim as to their effectiveness in your specific setting. You are encouraged to review their websites, call them up, contact them with any question you may have, call the congregation or pastor that brings the recommendation; and then decide. If you have a ministry or resource that you would like to offer to others, please contact our Service Coordinator (mark@lcmc.net) to learn how you might be added to those already listed. en-us Brotherhood Mutual http://www.solapublishing.com/congregational-resources/brotherhood-mutual/a832.html Mon, 01 Oct 18 00:00:00 -0600 LCMC has arranged with Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company to be part of their ministry partner program. Brotherhood Mutual provides high-quality insurance protection and risk management services and works exclusively with churches and related ministries.

When churches practice good risk management, they provide a safer place for their members to worship, resulting in few losses. When that happens, Brotherhood Mutual gives our denominational office a Safe Ministry Reward payment. The ministry partner program does not affect insurance premiums, but it does help our denomination when member churches and ministries manage their risks well.

You can find more information about Brotherhood Mutual and the many risk management services that the company offers at www.brotherhoodmutual.com.
