How to Protect Them from Lawsuits
you a pastor or ministry leader? Are you unwilling to compromise your
marriage, gender, and sexuality but concerned about the
legal liabilities that might result?
If that's you, we want to help.
Supreme Court's recent decision to redefine marriage for the entire
many pastors and ministries leaders worried about how this
will impact their ministry.
And for good reason. During arguments
before the Supreme Court, U.S.
Solicitor General said that maintaining
tax exempt status is "going to be an issue"
for non-profits that hold to
the natural and historical understanding of marriage.
While there is risk in a changing world, there are also steps you can take to protect
the ministry you care about from lawsuits.
Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW) is taking this booklet one
step further. FPIW
is setting up meetings all over Washington State to
help pastors and ministry leaders better
protect their ministry from
future sexual orientation and gender identity lawsuits. These
will be based on ADF's Protecting Your Ministry booklet, but will also discuss
how to be more proactive in the legislative process in Washington State.
These meetings are free! All we ask is that you let us know if you are planning on
attending (register here).
Several meetings are scheduled, but more dates and times will
be announced in the
following cities in the near future. If you are
interested in hosting a Protect Your Ministry meeting in your community, let us know. We'd love to work with you!
Even if you can't attend, please send this to a pastor or ministry leader you know
Please prayfully consider attending or hosting
a Protect Your Ministry meeting.
