Guidance for churches

Christian Legal Society held a Church Guidance Webinar, co-sponsored by the National Association of Evangelicals, in 2015 following the same-sex marriage decision, giving practical advice on religious liberty guidance for churches.  We hope you were able to attend, however, we are pleased to offer a recording of the webinar (attended by nearly 2000 people, pastors, and friends), as well as the accompanying white paper and subsequent FAQ documents below. 

These resources are provided free of charge. If you find these resources helpful please consider supporting CLS today.
