Join the legal membership that is preparing and protecting ministries across the country
Those behind bars need your ministry - they need the hope of Jesus Christ and the encouragement of believers. As you pursue this calling, we want to help you with the critical legal questions you may be encountering.
We know how much prisoners rely on the relationships you build and the care you have for them. It’s a ministry that is a special reflection of the Gospel to these men and women behind bars.
Your calling, clearly reinforced in God’s Word, is so necessary. But that does not mean that your life-changing ministry will not face adversity.
As we see the culture and laws shift in America, prison ministries are experiencing pressure to compromise their Christian missions. This pressure may come from those who believe that the Establishment Clause or issues of entanglement requires you to stop ministering. Or it may come from those who seek to dictate who you can hire and the employee code of conduct that your ministry can enforce.
Without proper advice and safeguards in place, prison ministries may be unknowingly adding to their legal burdens or surrendering many of their First Amendment rights that are central to their existence. These burdens and pitfalls can distract from the core mission of your ministry.
ADF Ministry Alliance exists to provide ministries with the religious liberty 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.

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 if your question constitutes a legal issue, or even if it has religious freedom implications, you still have access - and our attorneys can guide you to next steps.
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.
Ensure ministries have the legal representation they need by committing to membership.
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.
