Join the legal membership that is proactively preparing and protecting ministries across the country.


Is Your Ministry Prepared?

  • Are you confident that your policies are helping to protect your religious freedom?
  • What would you do if an employee of your ministry stopped abiding by significant biblical teachings?
  • How would you handle media inquiries to issues of Christian convictions of your ministry?
  • Are you concerned about how sexual orientation and gender identity laws may impact the biblical foundations of your ministry?

The spiritual shift in America is something every ministry is noticing. As the shifts in law and culture continue, ministries like yours are experiencing pressure to compromise their Christian missions.

Without proper advice and safeguards in place, ministries have mounting legal burdens relating to many aspects of the law: government grants, facility use, government regulations, volunteer requirements, tax exemption issues, and more. These legal burdens can distract from the core mission of your ministry.

The risks of not being prepared are high. Critical governance documentation may be incomplete or need to be updated. Ministries may be unsure how to handle issues that they should have the freedom to address. And if a religious freedom lawsuit comes their way, they often don’t know where to turn. Without legal help, ministries may, even unknowingly, surrender many of their First Amendment rights that are central to their existence.

That is why Alliance Defending Freedom launched ADF Ministry Alliance - to provide ministries with religious liberty help they need to freely minister. We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how membership can prepare and protect your ministry, without the traditionally high cost of robust legal consultation and support.

The price of an ADF Ministry Alliance membership is based your ministry's annual revenue. Membership is a yearly agreement. 

Your ministry won’t be charged an hourly rate for contacting ADF attorneys, and it won't be expected to pay an additional fee should we need to litigate a religious liberty case. The annual membership fee covers all help we provide to our members. That way, we can help your ministry and others whenever you need us.

Q:  Why does pricing for institutions of higher education differ from the pricing for other ministry types?

A:  Institutions of higher education experience greater complexity and diversity of religious freedom legal issues than do other ministry types. As a result, ADF attorneys have to devote considerably more time to ensure your institution is legally prepared, to the greatest extent possible, for the religious freedom threats it could face.
