Church Security Helps

Every church MUST think about church security in today’s world! Every church should have a comprehensive Church Security Plan and a Church Security Team in place! BUT, where do you begin and who can help? All of our Kentucky Baptist Convention Regional Consultants are prepared to make a presentation to the church or a group of leaders that will raise awareness for the need of a good security plan as well as cover some of the basics. They can provide first steps and help a church take next steps.

In addition to the help that we can provide directly through our KBC Regional Consultants, we have created a Church Security page on our website where we will be making resources available for churches on an ongoing basis. Also, here are some Church Security companies and resources that can also provide help:

For additional assistance please contact a KBC Regional Consultant directly or contact me at the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
