First Reason to choose New Wind1. A Complete and Comprehensive Service

We design church staff handbooks that meet each client’s needs and wants. We do a thorough review of your current employee policies and we take the time to understand what you need to get into writing. When we’re done, your new policy manual will be ready-to-use.

Compared to trying to create a handbook by using a template or a software program, you will:

  • Save 120 labor hours (or more) on research, formatting, and editing
  • Save hundreds of dollars in labor costs
  • Save the headaches of trying to understand what applies to your ministry and what doesn’t

Second Reason to choose New Wind2. Compliant with Federal, State, and Local Laws

We design church staff handbooks that comply with the laws for your state, ministry mix, and employee count. All of the core employee policies that we use have been reviewed by one of the country’s leading labor law firms.

Your church employee policies will be clear, concise, and complete:

  • Define employee benefits such as PTO, vacation, sick leave, and maternity leave
  • Establish employee behavior standards, including dress code, pastoral accountability, and use of church property
  • Clarify mandatory policies such as at-will employment, anti-discrimination, and overtime rules

Customized Church Manuals3. Customized to your Specific Ministry

We design employee handbooks that reflect each client ministry’s unique culture and priorities. We customize HR policies to match your established rules and benefits. We also add policies to reflect your specific ministry mix and work environment.

Your custom church staff handbook will capture those specifics like:

  • Phone, text, and social media rules
  • Vehicle safety, workplace security, and working with minors
  • Church van, church cafe, food pantry, and more

“We truly appreciate your help and patience with us!”
