A church is more than a building – it’s a community
Sharing the Gospel is your first priority, but in order to effectively do so, you need to protect the financial health and well-being of your ministry. For nearly 20 years, our commitment to Christian churches has included helping you manage costs, increasing and improving loss prevention, and ensuring that we provide value.
A church is a worship center where people unite in a familiar, comfortable environment. Individuals seeking spiritual guidance join together to form a familial bond. Should disaster strike, a church insurance policy can help you provide physical and emotional protection to your community in times of need.
Although property and liability insurance policies are often similar in how they address fire, hail, and other non-ministry-specific losses, they can vary greatly in other aspects that are unique to your mission. At Carriage Trade Insurance Agency, we tailor your insurance to protect your ministry’s unique property, people, and programs.
