risk management

Welcome to Risk Management

It is the Oregon Conference Risk Management Department’s mission to support members in ministries by providing safe environments as they follow God’s call to go and make more disciples. The Oregon Conference Risk Management Department provides support to the church members making available safe spiritual and physical (abuse-free) environments for every Oregon Conference employee and church member (adult and child), who works on behalf of the organization or attends programs and activities of the Oregon Conference Seventh-day Adventist Church.

One of the responsibilities of this department is to assist our churches and schools with issues relating to risk management and insurance. This site includes documents that will assist you as a volunteer to perform your church and/or school duties.
