Guns at Church: What Ministry Leaders Should Know

Video Series

Acts of deadly violence at churches continue to make headlines. Church leaders face complex questions about how best to protect the people who come through their doors each week.

To help ministry leaders handle these challenges, Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company and Christianity Today co-sponsored "Guns at Church: What Ministry Leaders Should Know," a webinar with noted church legal expert Richard Hammar.

During this one-hour webinar recording, church leaders will learn:

  • A ministry's responsibilities in preventing acts of violence against their congregations.
  • The potential liabilities that ministries face in their safety and security efforts.
  • Legal issues to consider while formulating a ministry's "concealed carry" (CCW) policy.
  • How to balance a ministry's CCW policy with local CCW laws.

Rich reviews court decisions, various state and federal laws, and best practices, and takes questions from participants to help churches of all sizes thoughtfully and responsibly address their security needs.
