Gearhart Church
Insurance Group

We are an independent insurance agency specializing in providing quality insurance to churches and related ministries in the Heartland region. Our agency was founded by Kenneth E. Gearhart in 1980 and transitioned from a general insurance provider to a church insurance agency in 2001. Since then, our partnership with Brotherhood Mutual insurance company, has given us the ability to provide excellent services to our clients. We now insure over 870 churches and related ministries in Illinois and Missouri and we have the experience needed to provide specialized service to our clients. Utilizing Brotherhood Mutual as our primary carrier has enabled us to provide our clients with excellent, innovative insurance programs with competitive pricing.
