*Important Information: Brotherhood Mutual is pleased to provide Legal Assist as a complimentary resource. The services they offer through Legal Assist are intended to provide general legal information to current and prospective policyholders. The information Brotherhood Mutual provides is intended to be helpful, but it does not constitute legal advice and is not a substitute for the advice from a licensed attorney in your area. Accordingly, no attorney/client relationship is created through the process, and no legal advice will be provided. We encourage you to regularly consult with a local attorney as part of your risk management program.

Is it time for a bylaws check-up?

It is generally recommended to review your bylaws with a professional every 4-5 years. Failure to comply with state and local laws can create legal liability for your ministry, and failing to follow your bylaws can expose leaders of your ministry to personal liability.


Not sure where to start? Our free review service will help you understand the best practices and gaps with your current documents. 


IMPORTANT: This service is not a replacement for local legal or HR guidance. Recommendations should be reviewed with a knowledgeable attorney or HR professional.

1-1 Risk Management Guidance for Your Ministry

Your Bylaws Review includes these resources:

  1. A sample bylaws document with best practice policies and sample verbiage.
  2. A checklist to see which recommended policies have been implemented or are missing.
  3. Further 1-1 guidance tailored to your ministry’s bylaws.

Are your leaders protected?

Leaders care about managing their ministries well. Yet, even when making decisions that align with the best interests of the ministry, lawsuits could arise that challenge those decisions. If sued, their personal assets could be at stake. 

Directors and Officers Liability Coverage protects against financial damage claims based on the decisions made by ministry leaders.
