After almost 100 years of insuring churches, you might think we’ve seen it all. Yet at Brotherhood Mutual, we’re inspired daily by the creative ways ministries are reaching people.
Your stories remind us how important it is to help the church thrive. You inspire us to continually improve and expand our coverages, so we can provide the type of service ministries deserve.
To help tell customer stories, we introduced Reach One More in 2014. This website shares accounts of outreach efforts that are changing lives. Here are three stories that we hope will inspire you, too.
Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company is here to serve the church. We believe that when this is done well–and you are able to focus on ministry–the result is what Jesus calls in John 15:16 “fruit that will last.”
Fruit that will last: That’s why we’re here. When your ministry suffers a loss, you can have confidence that we will be there, so you can continue to worship together, feed people in your soup kitchen, and teach kids about the love of God.
Every ministry that buys a Brotherhood Mutual policy plays a vital role in church restoration. Because our mutual insurance company is owned entirely by churches and related ministries, your premium dollars help other ministries get back on their feet. In 2014, you helped more than 17,000 ministries recover from losses that could have been devastating without insurance.
Sometimes, customers emerge from a loss even stronger than before.
This was the case with First Prairie Creek Baptist Church,
whose sanctuary was destroyed by fire.
For churches, tithes and offerings pay for everything from the pastor’s salary to the preschoolers’ snacks. Brotherhood Mutual understands that tithes pay the insurance bill, too. It’s why we take a fiscally conservative approach in everything we do. This approach consistently earns us an A (Excellent) rating from A.M. Best Company, the industry’s leading analyst. Nearly 50,000 ministry organizations benefit from our strong financial position, including one-third of America’s largest churches.
Seeing ministries make a difference inspires us to do the same. Each year, dozens of agents and employees volunteer for work projects organized by Co.Mission, our corporate mission program. In 2014, the team served alongside a nonprofit organization that is sowing hope in Memphis, Tennessee.
