S. provider of property and casualty insurance to Christian churches and related ministries. Their home office is in Fort Wayne, Indiana.[1] They were founded in 1917 by a group of evangelical Mennonites.[2]

Brotherhood Mutual provides insurance to approximately 55,000 customers throughout the United States.[3] Types of insurance provided include property, liability, commercial auto, workers' compensation, and travel. They also provide legal, payroll, and travel assistance services to churches, K-12 schools, camps, and missions. Brotherhood Mutual Insurance is rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best.[4]

Controversy[edit]

In 2007, Brotherhood Mutual denied coverage to the West Adrian United Church of Christ in Michigan, citing higher risks due to the church's endorsement of gay marriage [5]
