Property and Casualty Insurance

Offering you the unique coverage your ministry needs.

Alliance with Brotherhood Mutual®

GuideStone® believes when the Body of Christ is healthy, it’s free to transform the world — and we want to help guide and equip your ministry and its people to do just that. So, we have teamed up with Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company to provide churches, Christian schools, colleges and universities, camps and other ministries with tailored property and liability insurance.

Our goal is to empower your ministry and people to stay protected so you can focus on fulfilling your calling.

What We Offer

Property Insurance

Cover your buildings, property and belongings. If your ministry is damaged, destroyed or the victim of theft, this policy can help lessen financial burdens resulting from a loss.

Liability and Excess Liability Insurance

Guard your ministry, employees, leaders and volunteers from lawsuits, liabilities and losses. Also ensure that what makes your ministry unique is protected with excess liability insurance.

Commercial Auto

Provide coverage for people’s injuries and your ministry’s vehicles in the event of an accident. A commercial auto policy can help lessen financial burdens arising from vehicle liabilities, collisions, personal injury and more.

Workers' Compensation

Employee Benefits
Help employees who suffer from a work-related injury or illness by offering workers’ compensation to help pay for medical, disability, rehabilitation and, in rare instances, expenses associated with death on the job.

Employer’s Liability
Protect your ministry from financial loss in the event that an employee files a suit for a work-related injury or illness.

Mission Travel

Individual Coverage
Faith Ventures® — A simple way to book, insure and prepare for your mission trip.

Organizational Coverage
Protect your mission teams whether they are going a few miles down the road or halfway around the world.

What People Are Saying About GuideStone

Doug Grissom, Senior Pastor, Twin Cities Baptist Church
We were going to have to close our doors. Property and Casualty Insurance was so high. The quote from GuideStone saved us a little over 60%, but the coverage was comparable - greater in some areas. It was quick, easy and extremely timely for us. GuideStone’s coverage allowed us to keep our doors open.”

What issues should church board members be aware of?

The governing board of a church plays a key role in moving the ministry toward its goals. When you accept a position on the church board, you agree to guide the church and put its interests before your own. As a result, you will be held to a higher standard of accountability than your neighbors in the congregation. As you make decisions affecting the life of the ministry, be sure you understand the top 10 things church board members should know about their ministry.

What should our church do when a background check turns up a criminal record?

A good general rule is to use the same criteria followed by the local public school system. If the public school system is prohibited from employing the candidate, then your ministry would do well to avoid employing or involving the candidate. You can find out what criteria are used by contacting your local public school system directly or by enlisting the help of an attorney. Learn more.

How does your policy cover special events and mission trips?

Separate policies can be purchased for both special events and mission trip coverage. When an accident occurs during church, school or camp activities, accident insurance plans will help by providing coverage for medical expenses associated with accidental injuries, with deductibles as low as $0. And regardless of where your mission takes you, travel insurance is essential. Brotherhood Mutual has allied with Fly For Good® to bring mission travelers the Faith Ventures® card, an affordable travel medical insurance option that comes with single- or multi-trip plans for foreign and domestic short-term mission travel.
