RISING STAR BAPTIST CHURCH SECURITY MINISTRY

Introduction: Although we don’t like to think of violent acts occurring within the church walls, it is something for which we are obligated to prepare for. Our ministry has an obligation to church members, parishioners, and every visitor who steps inside our doors to provide a safe environment for worship. This ministry is made up of a team of dedicated men and women who work together to provide a safe holistic atmosphere within the body of Rising Star Baptist Church.
 
Mission Statement: Our goal is to serve the members and guests our of church, from directing traffic on Sundays to securing the church campus during worship service and special events to provide a safe holistic atmosphere within the body of Rising Star Baptist Church.
 
History: The Security Ministry was organized in 2011. The Security Ministry is a church-oriented cadre that will provide an interactive relationship between the church administration to identify problems and concerns, and then address them with available solutions. The Security Ministry consists of church member volunteers who want to help keep God’s property and members safe.
