Clients About Us

“We have relied on Ed and his team to serve all of our insurance needs since September 2009. He has worked hard to keep us adequately covered while keeping our rates low. When claims have to be made or questions need to be answered we have always received prompt and complete service.”

– Thomas Viliocco, King of Kings Lutheran Church

King of Kings Lutheran Church

Chesterfield. MO

“We have been a client of the Crane Agency and Ed Politte for several years. As premiums have increased over the years, Ed has shopped our coverage and we are paying less today than we did in 2007, for better coverage. He makes sure we are getting the coverage we need at the best price. We would recommend him to your church.”


Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church

Valley Park, MO

“Our church has been working with the Charles L. Crane Agency for a number of years.  They have always been very helpful in finding the best fit for our insurance needs and explaining how our existing coverage is working for us. When we have had to file claims, they have worked through the process with us to make sure our claims were correctly addressed.  I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to help them through the complexities of church insurance.”
