Insurance for Missionaries
Insurance For Your Missionary Or Mission
Passport To Ministry
(SM) is international insurance protection for travelers with a mission! This exclusive coverage offered by Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company is a policy that will fill the gaps in coverage that your current policies have while you are traveling outside the United States. It provides protection against lawsuits - even auto lawsuits, and includes workers compensation, medical assistance protection like emergency medical evacuations and travel services such as evacuations due to political instability and many more!
Passport To Ministry was designed to cover sponsors (churches, mission agencies, denominations etc.) and the short-term mission groups and long-term missionaries they send outside the U.S. It can also cover tour groups, like those traveling to the Holy Land or students studying abroad.

With the tragic events
of 9/11 it may be prudent to review your life insurance program and
determine if your family will be financially provided for in the case
of death. Adams & Associates International (sm) can arrange a 5-year
level premium, level term life insurance policy for overseas
missionaries through Lloyd's, London. The initial application proposal
is subject to medical underwriting and possibly rated for geographical

application proposal is approved, the terms agreed to by the applicant
and a policy issued, the annual premium rates are level for the 5 year
term. The policy is renewable if overseas service is maintained. The
cost of international life insurance is now, more than ever, based on
world events and location, which we all know, can change quickly and
without notice. For complete information, contact Adams & Associates
