Resources from Hot Topics

Resources on Hot Topics from Prayer Conference

Following our recent Prayer Conference and training sessions conducted with Bishop Art Rhodes from the Church of God Benefits Board, we have received requests for information referenced during those sessions.

The following specific documents have been added as "Free Resources" (lower bottom section) on our Resources webpage (linked here).

The first item is the powerpoint slides that Bishop Rhodes used during his "Hot Topics" (Legal and Financial Issues) presentation at Prayer Conference. Included with the file are notes that are referenced with each slide.  

The second item is an elaboration of what Bishop Rhodes shared about Security in the Church.  This is a powerpoint presentation by Dennis Watkins, Attorney for Church of God International Offices.

The third item is a template in Microsoft Word format (Facilities Use Agreement) you can modify for the usage of your church facility when it comes to rentals or non-church related use of the facilities.  This document is important to have in place prior to another party using the building, campus, or facilities for a non-church related function.

The fourth item is a memo provided by Gammon & Grange, P.C. that references frequently asked questions about the U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Same-Sex-Marriage.

We hope our churches and pastors find these items helpful.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the State Office.
