Merrill, WI – Church Mutual Insurance Company has launched CM Select Insurance Company. CM Select is the first insurer to offer online access to a product created specifically for smaller churches and other religious organizations.

“As all sectors of business, including faith-based organizations, move toward a digital-first approach, we’ve taken the opportunity to disrupt the market with CM Select,” said Kurt Brandau, CM Select president. “Churches, especially smaller churches, tend to be strapped for time and are looking for convenient coverage that is unique to their specific needs. We’re proud to be the first insurer of faith-based organizations to provide an online purchasing experience, allowing them to spend more time focusing on their mission.”
The launch of CM Select demonstrates that the Church Mutual family of companies continues to lead the industry, finding new ways to meet the needs of houses of worship.
“We have built our success on listening and responding to the needs of faith-based organizations,” said Rich Poirier, Church Mutual Insurance Company president and CEO. “Our policyholders continue to embrace technology and want online access to their insurance information. We developed this company with their needs in mind.”
CM Select is currently writing business owner policies (BOP) for smaller churches and other religious organizations in Michigan with plans to launch in Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin by year’s end. This rapid growth is expected to continue through 2019. CM Select has earned a financial strength rating of A (Excellent) From A.M. Best.
