Hands on & Tailored Service for Your Ministry's Employee Benefits

Transform your ministry’s impact with a benefits program that helps you attract the right people, manage your budget and support your values.

There are plenty of Employee Benefits brokers out there, but none of them offer the diverse range of insurance programs customized to meet the unique needs of Ministries that ChurchWest does. We take a very customized and hands-on approach to find the right combination of plans that best suit your organization’s needs.

Our team is extremely knowledgeable with 40+ years of combined experience. You’ll never have to navigate your benefits program alone. Rest assured that we are here to support you no matter the question or concern. Our team is dedicated to providing you with the answers and assistance you need, allowing you to focus on your Ministry. Ensuring your peace of mind is our utmost priority.

Short & Long Term Disabilty

Given that many churches choose not to participate in State Disability programs, we’ve educated the disability carriers on how Ministries operate in this space. We offer alternative programs that can effectively replace this protection.
