Your 1st line of defense
Learn what the overall state of access security is for congregations today, what access control best practices are, and what solution options are available to consider. Churches face significant challenges when balancing the missional mandate to be open-armed to the surrounding public while maintaining a safe and secure premise. Hosting para-church organizations, conducting community outreach functions, and welcoming the community are high on every church’s list. And so also should be safety and security.
Safety and security starts with well managed access control. Knowing who is where, and who has provisional access to church property is essential. Ask yourself two quick questions to see if this might be a valuable session for you:
1) Do you know how many church keys there are?
2) Do you know who has those keys right now?
