Keeping the Church Safe
As part of keeping Jesus Christ’s command to care for His lambs is the responsibility of making every provision possible to protect the church: the facility, the clergy and staff, and the church members and children. Today, that charge has taken on new meaning with the increase in violence and crime in the United States, especially against church establishments. The Church Protection Planning Workshop is designed to inform and equip the clergy, staff, and members on how to protect their churches.
