125 years ago, Church Mutual® began by insuring churches against fire losses. As the years have passed, its breadth of offerings has expanded to cover other losses and beyond church walls to nonprofits, senior centers, food pantries, housing shelters, schools, camps and more. “It’s about so much more than insuring the physical spaces,” says Church Mutual Chief People Officer Pam Stampen. “I feel inspired every day, because our goal is to protect our customers so they can continue the important work they do in their communities.”

Founded in Merrill, Wisconsin, the company recently opened a new office in Milwaukee. “Bringing 60-plus jobs to Milwaukee will help us create a more diverse workforce that better reflects the diversity of our customers,” says Richard Poirier, the president and CEO.

Church Mutual’s mission is to protect those who serve and inspire others. As the company continues expanding, this brings different challenges and opportunities. “One day we’re responding to a wildfire in California, and the next day we’re helping a Latino ministry respond to COVID,” says Poirier. “Ultimately, people matter. That’s the north star we follow.”
