No one should go to church in fear. Many church leaders are not addressing the security threats. It is time for churches, both small and large, to develop safety and security strategies by being proactive. As a church leader you need to take measures to ensure the security of the property. As you develop a security plan, keep the following in mind.
- Physical security for the church should include CCTV cameras and alarm systems.
- Security for personnel and pastoral team.
- Protection of financial assets.
- Background check of staff and volunteers.
- Plan for emergency action response.
- Transport and protection of tithes and offerings.
First and foremost, safety needs to be viewed as high priority. Protecting the facilities, properties and the people in your church is a demonstration of compassion on the churches part.
