Every organization should have an attorney. Small or large, secular or religious, if your church has employees, money, events, facilities, property, other assets, guests, members, or customers, it needs an attorney. There are three primary reasons your church needs an attorney. First, with each of the things mentioned above comes a certain degree of risk. Good general counsel attorneys help you manage risk to protect the organization from legal harm. Second, we live in a highly regulated society. Complying with all of the regulations that your church is subject to can be a full time job, and there is ministry work to be done. Finally, your church needs a general counsel that can balance ministry and church growth needs with legal best practices and compliance. Church General Counsel does all of this.
