Whether your church has an established safety team or you’re looking to create one, there are always things to consider to ensure the maximum safety of your church. Recruiting and maintaining the right volunteers to serve can determine how successful your ministry will be. Creating team structures to help your volunteers and staff avoid burnout creates sustainability.

You also need to clearly define the responsibilities of each member of the Safety and Security Team for both services and special events. Discover how to use law enforcement for protection and traffic needs when necessary. Furthermore, implementing and maintaining safety systems such as the use of security cameras or access control can further create a safe environment.

Bring your questions and we’ll cover those as well!

  • Identify the right person for the responsibility of Safety and Security volunteer
  • Build and delegate responsibility so that your team thrives and doesn’t crumble under stress
  • Train a volunteer team in a consistent but time-honoring way
  • Learn how the use of safety/security technology can help serve your church and empower your volunteers
