In today's world, safety and security are becoming a growing concern within churches and various houses of worship. This was never even a thought years ago but with the violence increasing in today's society and the attacks on churches increasing, the establishment of some sort of security teams in churches is becoming a necessity. Churches can be held liable for not having some sort of security team!
Sadly, the only thing many church members, staff and volunteers think about when the concept of church safety and security is mentioned, is responding to a shooter or to an assault on the church on Sunday or Wednesday or whenever your services are held. There is so much more to having a truly safe and secure church than that---as important as that is, of course.
Keep this in mind: If your church can develop a security response team for emergencies, it can develop an expanded program that includes whole-church needs and can reap the many rewards that come with the effort. It’s possible, relatively easy and very, very rewarding!
