4 Ways to Help Protect Your Church During a Violent Crisis


Share This Post

Given the current global climate, safety is top of mind for many.  Violence can happen anywhere, even in your church.  Taking prevention measures before a threatening attack occurs, like installing working security cameras, can help provide a safe environment.  However, there are also steps you can take to help reduce the amount of risk your church, staff, and visitors face should a tragic event unfortunately happen. 

Here are some tips to help reduce risk during a violent crisis:

  • 1 - Assemble a church security team

Having a security team on-site is integral to responding quickly if there’s ever a violent situation at your church. Consider hiring an outside security company to provide support for church events or find volunteers amongst your congregation that have law enforcement, military, or first aid training.

  • 2 - Create a crisis response plan

In addition to having trained personnel, it’s important that you have a plan in place. Consult with local law enforcement or security experts to develop a plan tailored to your church and its needs.

  • 3 - Gather emergency supplies

Providing first aid quickly can mean the difference between life or death in certain scenarios. It’s important to have first aid kids and medical supplies nearby and on-hand at your church and its buildings so medical attention can be provided as needed.

  • 4 - Arrange clean up and recovery support

A crisis will undoubtedly leave its mark on your people and church. Arranging clean up and recovery support can make a big difference after a tragic event. Consider hiring a contractor or construction company to make any necessary repairs and a cleaning company to handle the aftermath while everyone begins to heal. Consider providing mental health support to anyone that needs it to aid in their healing, as well.
