Pastor Karen Scharli – Champion Lakes Christian Church – WA

"On behalf of Champion Lakes Christian Church, we want to let you know how much we appreciated the assistance we received from Faith Insurance. After many years we decided to look for an affordable insurance policy suited to our needs. After talking with Gaurav and comparing policies we were satisfied with his customer service approach and professionalism in representing Faith Insurance. Gaurav explained every step of the way and assisted us with complete answers to our questions. We were treated fairly and with the utmost courtesy. We are very happy with our decision. Thank you!"

"My name is Kevan Denny, Senior Minister at Sunnybank Church of Christ. We made the decision to move to Faith Insurance in May 2023 and have been impressed with the level of service and coverage offered. The process of obtaining a quotation through to policy from Faith Insurance was simple. The policy coverage, including deductible structure, was very attractive and cost-effective for our needs.

We greatly appreciated the opportunity to meet with Gaurav Puri during his visit to Brisbane, including his efforts to meet with nearby Churches of Christ clients in October 2023. We had approached other providers but found Gaurav’s service and dedication to meeting the needs of our church exceptional.

I highly recommend Faith Insurance."

"For many years we stayed with the same insurance company, but even though it was a rare thing for us make a claim, our premiums kept rising beyond what we thought was reasonable for a ministry to pay.  As it happened, we were told about " Faith Insurance" and Gaurav was highly recommended by a friend ,who is also in ministry.

We contacted Gaurav, and were absolutely delighted when he provided a very competitive quote  (for the same amount of cover). Since then, we have continued to insure with Faith Insurance and we know that when it comes to sticky insurance requirements, Gaurav has our back, and keeps us well informed. I am happy to recommend his services and know that he will do his utmost to tailor the right insurance package for you".

"Good afternoon Gaurav,

We, Marburg Church of Christ would like to confirm that we have received all relevant Documents for New Insurance Policy that we’ve acquired from Faith Insurance.

It was a pleasure dealing with you from the outset. We found that you could answer any or all queries that we had which made the whole process so much easier.

As we were due for re-valuation, we had Brenton from BJS Valuations come to do that for us, also very helpful and informative making it all fall into place so as to be able to submit all details required.

Also, assuring us that you’re only a phone call away if we need any assistance in the future.

Many thanks Gaurav again,"

"After many years with the same insurance provider, we noticed that year after year our premiums were raised to a level that seemed extremely high and were getting beyond what we could afford. Yearly renewal of our policies was a complicated and unclear process. We discovered that our levels of cover had automatically been increased each year, and in many areas we were way over-insured. Switching to Faith Insurance and dealing directly with Gaurav who has provided clear explanation and simplified the process of church insurance, has meant we now know exactly what we are insured for and have exactly the right amount of cover for what we need. The renewal process each year is clear and easy to access.

We are not only now paying less in premiums but we have also experienced prompt and professional responses to every question we've had, every step along the way. We have no hesitation in recommending Faith Insurance to any church for their insurance needs."

"Good Morning Gaurav,

The management team of Silverdale Church of Christ would like to sincerely thank you for all your help in aiding us to set up our church insurances with your company, Faith Insurance. Your premiums & excesses were within normal boundaries and this was something we were looking for too.

From the first contact, yourself & your team have been so efficient, friendly & very professional. Cannot speak highly enough of your efforts to help us. We had questions & you had the answers to everything. It was a very easy process for us, and for this we Thank You!

I would recommend you & your Faith Insurance to anyone looking for a helpful friendly team to insure with.

Kind regards & God's blessings,"

"For years we were insured with Ansvar via a broker. When we approached Gaurav at Faith Insurance, we were pleased with the advice offered, coverage options and significant savings on premiums made by joining the Scheme. The client service since moving to Faith Insurance has been excellent. Gaurav answered our insurance queries and supported us through our claim efficiently, acting in our best interests when dealing with Ansvar. We recommend other independent churches go online to get a quote or simply contact Gaurav. We are confident we made the right decision to move."

Pastor Chris Manessis – Calvary Baptist Church, WA

Pastor Chris Manessis – Calvary Baptist Church, WA

"For almost a decade, our church has dealt directly with an insurer for our insurance requirements. We recently appointed Edgewise as our insurance broker, following several conversations with Gaurav Puri, who placed our insurance policies under the Faith Insurance Scheme. Gaurav listened to our concerns, clarified our requirements and drew on his professional knowledge and experience to recommend an insurance policy that provided even greater risk protection than we already had. We are very satisfied with our new policy and are even more confident in the knowledge that we have a broker to represent our interests in the event of a claim. Polite, prompt and honest has been our experience with Gaurav."

"Faith Insurance has proven to be an excellent choice since we moved to them from our previous insurance broker in 2018. Your professional service, comprehensive insurance cover and advice, together with a Building Valuation Report at no additional cost, has provided value for money. We strongly recommend other churches get an online quote and consider making the move to Faith Insurance."

"Dear Gaurav, I would just like to send you a short note to convey my thanks for the way you have handled and serviced our insurance needs.

I am particularly impressed how personal, pleasant and prompt the service was and how you made yourself available for clarifications and questions even out of normal working hours. What’s even more impressive is the after-sale customer relations and follow up. Please be encouraged that it does make a lot of difference when in these days, we mostly transact with automated machines and the like."

"Last year I arranged all insurance covers for our church through Faith Insurance. Their friendly service over the telephone and by emails was efficient and promptly addressed my insurance queries.  They have delivered on their promise to provide regular professional service and the best insurance cover at a very competitive price.

"We had been having our public liability insurance with an insurance underwriter for more than five years, and their premium was reasonable, highly competitive, and had good value for money. Our policy renewal was in early December 2023; due to a mix-up in handling renewal notices at our end, resulted in the policy expiry. A valid insurance policy was very much required during the Christmas season for us to continue with church activities. This placed our church in a precarious situation.

I contacted several insurance brokers to obtain an insurance policy without success due to ongoing public holidays. One insurance broker advised me to contact Faith Insurance and assured me success with them.

I contacted Gaurav of Faith Insurance on January 2, 2024, who was very willing to assist me, and his response was spontaneous, though he was travelling overseas at the time.

Within less than 2 hours, Gaurav assisted me through all stages of the issuance of a new policy, including the completion of online application, finalising the quotation that was the lowest and represented the best value for money, acceptance of payment, and issuance of the new policy.

I admired the professionalism of Gaurav and highly commend his customer service.

I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Faith Insurance to anyone who needs public liability insurance.’’
