A VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE

Introduction: Religious Land Use & The Church

A five-part series on an often overlooked law that can benefit churches.

This virtual roundtable, featuring attorneys Midgett Parker, John Mauck, Noel Sterrett, and Eric Treene, explores why every church should understand the ins and outs of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA).

This federal law provides powerful protections to houses of worship. Even if your congregation has yet to encounter obstacles from local government officials, zoning boards, or neighborhood associations, it should understand what RLUIPA is and how it works.

The virtual roundtable is conveniently set up in five segments for church leaders to watch, either individually or as a board, committee, or leadership team. It includes a companion PDF guide containing practical, helpful information. It also includes two video case studies featuring church leaders who successfully used RLUIPA to navigate challenges they faced.
