AZCSN Conference-Safety & Security Ministry Team Development

With the increasing cultural shift of intolerance towards Christian beliefs, Christians, and places of worship, it is imperative to be prepared to address the variety of safety issues that comes with this intolerance. Also, places of worship are not immune from random criminal acts such as property crimes, theft, or violence towards a congregation member or visitor. This session will help guide the participant through the extensive process of developing a safety & security ministry from the ground up, by discussing a variety of topics that must be considered and/or implemented to develop an effective ministry.
