When pastors and church leaders who are new to the idea of church security first begin to consider building a
volunteer security team, often they feel somewhat overwhelmed.
It is easy to imagine huge expenses, a complete disruption to existing procedures, complicated equipment-- -
and if the church is outsourcing for some of its protection-- -intimidating individuals in uniform who are
strangers to the congregation.
As Christians, ranging from the casual Sunday-only church-goer, all the way to a mega-church pastor, we are all familiar with the Great Commission: Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18 – 20.
