The Insurance Board is a property and liability insurance program created for churches by churches and founded on the guiding principle of making churches safer places for ministry. The Insurance Board believes that good stewardship means caring for each other.

The Insurance Board has been serving churches for three decades. In 1979 a local church trustee and entrepreneur in northern California felt that churches could improve insurance costs and improve services by forming group policies. Equally important, he realized that the money saved by the churches could be put toward mission opportunities. By 1981 a group insurance program was established in northern California. Within a year, six western conferences had joined. The Insurance Board now is governed by the 38 UCC conferences.

The Insurance Board is a nonprofit corporation established by the participating Conferences of the United Church of Christ. It administers a property and liability insurance program serving churches and related entities within three denominations: United Church of Christ, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and Presbyterian Church (USA).  More than 3,600 churches participate in the program representing greater than $11.2 billion dollars in property value.
