The South Queensland Conference provides a Will service to its members through the Trust Services Department. The service has operated for over thirty years and is under the supervision of practicing lawyers.
There are five directors who are ordained ministers and have received specialist training in the area of Wills and estate-planning and are regularly involved in professional development.
For legal reasons, the service provided is limited to “those associated with the church”. This is understood as referring to church members and others who attend church services. Wills are prepared free of charge and without financial obligation to leave a bequest to the church. Information Forms are available on this website, or by calling the Trust Services Department on 07- 3218 7777, during business hours. We request that the Information Form be completed fully before attending your appointment. Please feel free to phone us should you have any questions regarding the personal information requested on the Information Form.
Many members wish to benefit the church organization by means of a bequest, and when this is the case, the Director can ensure that the Will is written in such a way that the bequest will benefit that part of the Lord’s work that is the object of the member’s choice.
Guardianship of minor children often weighs heavily on younger parents and having Christian values reflected in their Will is important to them. Because it is a minister who is taking the instructions for their Will, he understands the sentiments of those parents and thereby enables Christian principles to be enunciated in regard to guardianship.
