The Open Door: one pastor’s thanks for Alliance Defending Freedom Church Alliance

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As you probably are aware, the Georgia Baptist Mission Board recently developed a wonderful relationship with Alliance Defending Freedom Church Alliance. The assistance offered to our churches is plenteous and at a remarkably reasonable price. Securing this level of legal counsel for this minimal cost is unheard of.

I received the below email from Pastor Don Mulkey of Colonial Woods Baptist Church and wanted to share it with you. I believe Don’s testimony will help you understand what joining Church Alliance can mean for your church.

Dr. White,

I hope you are doing well today.

I wanted to thank you for sending the packet about the Church Alliance. After reviewing the information, we determined that this was a “no brainer” and quickly signed up. For our size church, the discounted price (thanks to the GBMB assistance) was $200 for a year. That’s an incredible deal.

The staff with the Church Alliance has been outstanding! They answered questions, assisted with registration, and even followed up after we registered. I was contacted last week by an attorney, assigned to our church, who welcomed us and answered questions I had about a current legal issue. We are working on a facilities-use policy and they have already sent us templates to use to guide us through the process. In addition, once completed we can submit our documents to them for review. In the near future, we also will submit our constitution and by-laws to them for review.

I wanted you to know about our experience with the Church Alliance and how grateful I am for your recommendation. This removes an enormous burden from the shoulders of pastors and gives us confidence to stay faithful during these challenging days.

Thank you for your faithful ministry and support of Georgia Baptist churches and pastors.

God bless,

Pastor Don Mulkey

Colonial Woods Baptist Church
