Property Insurance Update
(Dec. 16, 2022) In consultation with both Bishops McKee and Saenz, the Cabinet, Conference Insurance Advisory Team, Board of Trustees, and Council on Finance and Administration, the North Texas Conference is recommending to the Annual Conference that we transition to a non-mandatory insurance program where churches would be responsible for finding their own property, liability, and auto insurance.
The overall costs to maintain the program for our local churches was the main driver of the decision-making process.
The Conference will continue to require each church to remain in a shared workers’ compensation policy that will provide coverage for all churches. This will be the most cost-effective approach to providing this coverage while ensuring that our churches and their staff are well protected.
We will vote on changes to the mandatory insurance program at our special session of the Annual Conference on Saturday, March 4, 2023. With full anticipation that this measure will pass, we encourage all churches to start exploring options immediately. You will need the time to explore options and bind property, liability, and auto coverage effective April 1, 2023.
