As many of us have experienced, mail can be unpredictable and held up during busy seasons. To help with this, Brotherhood Mutual has recently updated their billing address to provide more locations closer to specific regions. If you mail your payment or if your bank sends a payment on your behalf, be sure to provide them with Brotherhood Mutual’s new payment address. Payments mailed to the previous bank will be returned:
Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company
PO Box 514670
Los Angeles, CA 90051-4670
With many things happening at your ministry, you may find that mailing payments just isn’t convenient. Everyone has their preference regarding payments, but do you know what options are available to you?
Brotherhood Mutual offers an online management system for your account. You can register for this account by visiting Brotherhood Mutual’s MyAccount page and providing an email and password. If you have more than one person on your team that needs access, that’s no problem! Each team member can have a separate login to the account. Here you’ll be able to see your payment history, make online payments, file claims online, and access additional policy information. We’re continuing to add more options to this page, so stay tuned!
Sometimes receiving timely information by mail limits the amount of time you have to turn around with payment. That’s why Brotherhood Mutual also offers the option to elect electronic delivery for your invoices. Sign up to receive your invoices by email within your MyAccount!
Want to make your payments automatically? We also offer an option to transfer funds each pay period without doing anything electronically. You’ll still receive an invoice when each payment is due so that you can plan for the amount and due date accordingly. This allows you to put your focus on ministry without worrying about the chance of an insurance lapse. Another perk to automatic payments or paying online through your MyAccount page is that you avoid that $6 service fee with each payment.
Be sure to reach out to our service team if you have any questions regarding the options or payment plans available to you! We are here for you, and we have your back! You can reach them by phone at 877-794-2330 or by email at email@example.com.

Anyone who turns on the news, flips through a magazine, or browses the web can see that American society and culture are experiencing rapid transitions. Some ministries have valid concerns that issues surrounding societal shifts may expose them to negative publicity, governmental scrutiny, or litigation.
The questions become: when and how can ministries operate within their deeply held religious beliefs when they may conflict with others’ rights?
This summer is shaping up to be a banner year for churches offering Vacation Bible School (VBS) or summer day camps. After a couple of years of cancellations, mask mandates, and social distancing, that is refreshing and encouraging news.
As we prepare to welcome droves of children into our summer activities, we want to make sure that we do everything we can to make their experience enjoyable, memorable, and safe.
If you are planning your first volunteer or ministry trip abroad, it is important to know a few guidelines for traveling safely. There are some common pitfalls new travelers often struggle with that can be prevented with a little preparation. Here are 5 easy steps you can take to prepare yourself for traveling abroad safely.
As we enter the middle of 2022 amidst uncertainty in many areas, we continue to look at ways our ministries may be exposed. Inflation has reared its ugly head into the economy, and it has a massive effect on the construction industry, trickling into areas that matter to you and your ministry.
Cyber security is increasingly crucial in our technologically advanced world. Scammers use many schemes when attempting to steal your data, but you can outsmart them by understanding their methods.
Most ministry leaders don’t realize there is funding available to non-profit employers including churches, schools, colleges, and camps. This post includes some highlights about the credit and guidance on where to start to see if your ministry is eligible.
If your church is anything like mine, Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a big deal. Not just because it is central to our ministry’s outreach to young families, but because of the important role that VBS plays in the spiritual formation of children.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Though child abuse may not be something you could ever imagine happening within your ministry, sexual abuse of a minor is one of the top five reasons churches end up in court, according to Church Law & Tax. Studies also show that a child is much more likely to be sexually abused by a trusted adult than a stranger.
When severe storms strike, they can produce high winds and tornadoes. Damaging winds can wreak havoc on your ministry’s property and to buildings. A high wind event can crash debris through your windows, strip your siding, down trees on your parking lot, peel shingles off your roof, and fling back the flashing.
Thieves are taking advantage of soaring precious metal prices. Take steps to protect your ministry’s vehicles and property.
As the Director of Ministry Safety for our agency, I am dedicated to finding ways to help safeguard ministries like yours.
As temperatures plummet, the risk of freezing pipes jumps. Frozen pipes can cause costly messes that could also put your ministry on hold while you clean up.
On behalf of our agency, I recently participated in one such training which focused on strategies and tactics for responding as a single officer to an active safety threat in a school building.
If you’re anything like me (and maybe the rest of the world for that matter), you’re grateful to put the craziness of the past year behind us.
Preparing for this Christmas season may require additional creativity, due to the uncertainty of what COVID-19 may bring in our local community.
A mid-November deadline in the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) bankruptcy proceedings may have you wondering what the organization’s bankruptcy filing means for your ministry if you ever hosted or chartered Boy Scout Troops.
