The Top Ten Risk Areas for Churches with Deborah Wipf Ike


From resource constraints to safety concerns and more, ministry isn’t without risk. Parents drop off their children expecting them to be safe and cared for. Members place their tithes and offerings in the plate as it goes by expecting church leaders to manage and spend those funds wisely.
We’ve all heard about or read the news stories of churches who’ve dealt with the aftermath of a risk that came to pass. A child abused by a volunteer. A trusted elder committed fraud and stole thousands. A deranged man opened fire and killed or injured people during service. A tornado ripped the roof off the building and the church didn’t have insurance to cover the damage.
