Join the legal membership that is proactively preparing and protecting ministries across the country.
Parenting ministries face a rapidly changing world. The culture has rejected the biblical definition of marriage, and people are rapidly changing their minds on what parenting should look like. Both of these massive shifts are now increasingly reflected in our nation’s laws.
As your ministry seeks to help mothers, fathers, and their children align more closely with biblical principles, you already have a difficult job. Your ministry shouldn’t be left alone to navigate changes in the law by itself.
Some of these changes could affect your ministry’s religious freedom. Without proper advice and safeguards in place, parenting ministries have mounting legal burdens relating to many aspects of the law: sexual orientation and gender identity, free speech, government regulations, access to public property and grants, employment, tax exemption issues, and more. These burdens can not only distract you from the core mission of your ministry, but also threaten how you minister.
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, or feel as though they are prohibited from addressing issues they actually have the freedom to address. Without legal help, parenting ministries may, even unknowingly, surrender many of their First Amendment rights that are central to their existence.

To Prepare Ministries for the Changing Culture
We review your ministry's governing documents, policies, employment documents and more. Then we recommend changes and best practices tailored to protect religious liberty.
Reach out to our attorneys whenever you have legal questions about your ministry’s religious liberty. If you don't know whether your question constitutes a legal issue, or even has religious freedom implications, you still have access - and our attorneys can help guide your next steps.
Ensure Christian ministries like yours have the legal representation needed for a religious freedom issue. We can help your ministry with these legal matters - including litigation - at no additional cost.
Ensure ministries have the legal representation they need by committing to membership.

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.
