Board changes property insurance administrators


Special to the Advocate

The conference Board of Trustees has appointed Gallagher Risk Management Services of Ridgeland as the sole administrator of the conference-wide property insurance program, PACT. 

Churches were mailed a letter about the change April 23.

"The Trustees have been hard at work reviewing policy coverage for the conference-wide program. It is one of their responsibilities to see that the coverage offered in the conference-wide plan currently through PACT is the best for the local churches as a whole, is consistently provided to all churches in our conference, and is in accord with Annual Conference decisions," states the letter.

Questions can be directed to your district superintendent, Trustees Chair Rev. Henderson Rasberry, or Treasurer and Director of Financial Administration David Stotts.

The plan for the servicing and billing of the conference-wide program is as follows:

• Contact Gallagher Risk Management for claims reporting and program services related to the conference-wide program.  Please speak to Kent Edgecombe, Jeff Estes, or Chris Brantley at 800-960-4992, 601-863-3153, or 601-956-5810. 

• Church vehicles can now be covered. If you need a quote, contact Gallagher Risk Management at the numbers above.

• All conference-wide billings will come from Gallagher Risk Management.

With the change, Bill Barham and Wellington Insurance Agency are no longer authorized to represent the Mississippi Annual Conference or its conference-wide insurance program, PACT.
