Make Informed Security Decisions For Your Church

If you are a church pastor, board member, or administrator, you know that security is a growing concern among churches today. With terrorist activities and anti-Christian fervor on the rise, it is important to make informed decisions about how to protect the church building, services, and congregation from crime. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Learn more about security systems.

There are many effective security systems on the market today. Most come with a wide range of protective devices, such as digital window and door locks that can be set remotely, video cameras for indoor or outdoor surveillance, and alarms that connect directly to security monitoring personnel for a quick response.

Decide what is best for your church.

The board of directors, deacons, elders, or other church leaders may want to discuss security options and features, as well as cost and effectiveness. Some church congregations vote on matters of this type, while in other churches the leaders make the decision. Once the decision is made, you then need to consider which security devices are necessary and will be most helpful for your church.

Factors to consider.

Each church is different. For some, location will be a factor. For others, certain programs that reach out to specific populations may come into play. Discuss the factors that should be considered for a specific security program.

Some churches start small and add more security devices if needed. It depends on your church’s needs and vulnerability. Making an informed decision about the type of security to use will give everyone greater peace of mind.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Jackson Insurance provides personable, affordable, and streamline insurance. After a tree hit my house, I was dropped from my insurance carrier that I had been with for 15 yrs. Now considered a high-risk, I was concerned that I would have to pay astronomical premiums. I called Nolan Jackson and he not only found me similar coverage, but saved me over $450!

My husband and I had been unhappy with our insurance company for some time, we added security systems to our homes and when we called our insurance company in hopes of getting a better rate nothing changed. We then began our search for a new company.

After sending out several questionnaires from several websites Nolan Jackson Insurance was the first to respond, not only with an upbeat attitude, but he was so helpful in earning our business.

We could not be more pleased with the way in which he has handled all of our questions as well as our needs. His knowledge of his profession, as well as being able to help guide us through what we needed is second to none. His continued customer service is something you do not find often in today’s world typically once someone writes a policy that’s the end of hearing from them, with Nolan it is everything from the original information to making sure that we received all the follow up paperwork for our files.
