Usually considered safe havens, houses of worship have increasingly come under attack in recent years. Every church, no matter its size, location or denomination, should have procedures in place to protect congregants.

A few strategic steps church leaders can take are to implement safety policies, train teams and teach congregants.

Church security begins with threat assessment. Learning situational awareness and being able to spot threatening behaviors are key.

But developing and implementing these procedures can feel overwhelming. Questions to consider include (but are not limited to):

  • How do we make policies?
  • Who will make up the security team and how do we train members?
  • What does church safety look like practically on days when the doors are open for worship?
