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


Is Your Marriage Ministry Legally Prepared?

  • Will your ministry be hindered by changing sexual orientation and gender identity laws?
  • Are your ministry's legal documents - especially your bylaws and policies - helping preserve your religious freedom?
  • Are free-speech issues across the country beginning to concern you or your employees?
  • Do you have a trusted legal partner who can guide you in the midst of today's religious freedom threats?

Your passion for marriage – as God intended it – is inspiring. As you pursue this calling, we want to help you with the critical legal questions you may be encountering.

Marriage is a critical component of the Church, and it’s a picture of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Sadly, our society is regularly devaluing the institution, and the courts have redefined what marriage means in our laws.

When we look at what tomorrow may look like in America, we know that marriage ministries are necessary for a bright future. Marriage is good for human flourishing.

But opponents of marriage are regularly seeking ways to destabilize the institution. Legal trends show a rejection of basic truths about men and women. The culture seems to always be finding new ways to tear down marriages.

As an organization that has advocated both on behalf of marriage and of ministries for over 25 years, we have seen these changes firsthand. That’s why we stand with marriage ministries whose religious freedom is being challenged as new laws are proposed on local, state, and federal levels. The changes in the culture impacting your ministry must be met with preparation and protection.

ADF Ministry Alliance provides ministries like yours with the legal help you need to freely minister. Membership can help prepare and protect your ministry, without the traditionally high cost of robust legal consultation and support.

Don’t put your ministry at risk by facing legal issues alone

ADF Ministry Alliance Benefits

To Prepare Ministries for the Changing Culture

Document Review

We review your ministry's governing documents, policies, employment documents, and more. Then we recommend changes and best practices tailored to protect religious liberty.

Access to Attorneys

Reach out to our attorneys whenever you have legal questions about your ministry's religious liberty. If you don't know if your question constitutes a legal issue, or even if it has religious-freedom implications, you still have access - and our attorneys can help guide you to next steps.

Legal Representation

Ensure ministries like yours have the legal representation needed for a religious freedom issue. If necessary, we can even help your ministry with these legal matters - including litigation - at no additional cost.

Ministry Support

Ensure ministries have the legal representation they need by committing to membership.

Serving the body

Thorough ministry documents can serve as positive evidence in the courtroom. Additionally, members face peace of mind when confronting legal issues or changes. ADF Ministry Alliance also helps clarify how your ministry is distinctly Christian.
