Shield of Faith

//

A church safety ministry supporting all church pillars through the performance of risk assessments and crisis intervention.  Our goal is to meet the expectations of our members and guests to provide a safe environment to worship or engage in a relationship with Christ while being good stewards of all that they have entrusted to us, provide meaningful and appropriate guidance and tools to volunteers and staff in the event of on and off campus event related emergencies and incidents, and reduce interruptions to the church’s ministries and mission resulting from external forces, accidents, and related financial impact.

 

Our ministry is comprised of, but not limited to, current and prior industry first responders, law enforcement, private security, military, doctors, nurses, medical support professionals, industrial and business office safety personnel, fire inspectors, construction inspectors, code enforcement, CERT members, CPR/First Aid trained individuals, child and youth safety workers, lawyers, protocol developers, risk assessment, and ham radio operators.   

 

Members of the ministry have many opportunities to serve the church, from simply staying informed of tools and procedures available to them as a Good Samaritan responder, through augmenting our safety staff during high attendance church events on and off campus, and through our committee meetings quarterly to assist in developing a culture of church safety.
