Legal Guidance for Election Season

mtsbcAll Enews

Church leaders often wonder about the legal parameters to engaging with governing officials – and the community – on issues of public and moral importance. This is of particular concern during election season. Your decision to speak is a matter of conscience, conviction, and an understanding of the legal considerations surrounding civic engagement by churches.

As a church leader, you need to better understand your legal rights – and limits – when it comes to addressing politics, current issues, legislation, campaigns, and more. Some laws limit what churches and pastors can and cannot do in these areas, and navigating these laws can be challenging.

To help you and your church as you make decisions this election season,our friends at ADF Church Alliance are hosting a free webinar.
