The National Center for Life and Liberty is pleased to host the Church Legal-Health Seminar series. The goal of these seminars is to provide tools and resources to assist ministry leaders in performing an organizational “checkup.” Our desire for every church is maximum ministry opportunity with minimum liability. To ensure minimum liability, ministries need to properly and proactively protect themselves.

Seminar topics include:
· Church Position on Biblical Marriage and Sexuality
· Church Emergency Response Preparedness
