Legal Issues in Church Employment and Real Estate
Ministry Enrichment Seminar
Thursday, April 21, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Geneva Room (in Payton Hall)
In this Ministry Enrichment Seminar led by attorney Dennis
Kasper, we will examine the legal difference between an employee and a
volunteer, the wage and hour laws and how they apply to employees, the rules
addressing discrimination, and the tax benefits that exist for ordained clergy.
We will also discuss two main issues concerning real estate: Can denominations
prevent local congregations from leaving the denomination and taking their
property? And: Can communities use zoning laws to limit church ministries? More
and more communities are trying to restrict the growth of churches, or to keep
them from being established in the first place.
All are welcome to this free seminar, sponsored by Fuller’s
Office of Field Education.
