Protecting The Children First
Welcome to The Watchman church security podcast and this is episode #7. Today we are going to talk about your most important mission in the church. And that is, protecting the children FIRST. The truth of the matter is that adults choose to be victims, children do not. If your team is not providing protection in the children’s area FIRST, then your plan needs to be revisited.
Just because your team has been trained does not mean that it was done correctly as there are people teaching church security that do not really know what all is involved or how to properly set up a team. No man of God is going to protect adults over children without having proper protection of the children FIRST.
Sex crimes IN the church is the number one threat to your church. And, it is your duty to make sure that it NEVER takes place in your church. No longer can the body of Christ turn a blind eye to what is happening in the church. Too many innocent children are being molested in the church and it needs to stop NOW! If your team is unwilling to do what needs to be done, then you are not fulfilling your duties and the leadership needs to be addressed even if that means replacing your pastoral staff. Yes, you read that right.
