Equal Employment Opportunity Policy (Sample)

The EEO - Equal Employment Opportunity Policy (Sample) is available free to download, customize and print for your church or organization.


The EEO Policy and Procedure is essential to have if you have employees in your organization or church.

This sample policy is a great tool to use as a guide to ensure a policy of your own for your church policy and procedure manual...



The EEO Policy (Sample) below includes:

  • Purpose - This policy provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all [Church Name] employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, age, handicap, marital status, status as a Vietnam-era or special disabled veteran or other unlawful discriminatory characteristics in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including, but not limited to hiring, placement, promotion, termination, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.
  • Procedure - [Church Name] expressly prohibits any form of unlawful employment harassment. Improper interference with the ability of the church’s employees to perform their expected job duties is not tolerated. Moreover, the church does not permit dating between staff members. With respect to sexual harassment, the church prohibits:
  •  1. Unwelcome sexual advance; requests for sexual favors; and all other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual or otherwise offensive nature, especially where: Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment; Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for decisions affecting an individual’s employment; or Such conduct has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
  •  2. Offensive comments, jokes, innuendos, and other sexually oriented statements.   Each member of the staff is responsible for creating an atmosphere free of discrimination, and harassment, sexual or otherwise. Further, employees are responsible for respecting the rights of their coworkers.  If the employee experiences any harassment on the job, he or she should promptly report the incident to the Church Administrator or Associate Pastor, who will investigate the matter and take appropriate action. The employee’s complaint will be kept confidential to the extent possible.
  • If the church determines that an employee is guilty of harassing another employee, appropriate disciplinary action may be taken against the offending employee.   [Church Name] prohibits any form of retaliation against any employee for filing a bona fide complaint under this policy or for assisting in a complaint investigation. However, if after investigating any complaint of harassment or unlawful discrimination, the church determines that the complaint is not bona fide or that an employee has provided false information regarding the complaint, disciplinary action may be taken against the individual who filed the complaint or who gave the false information.

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do.

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!"

Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer
  • 7. So much more.

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
