In the United States over 230 people have been murdered while on church property since 1999. In addition, over 130 dead bodies have been discovered on church property during that same time frame. And neither of these facts come close to the number of children who have been sexually molested while on church property or at a church-related event.
The vast majority of these violent crimes have NOTHING TO DO with persecution. They are simply the crimes that occur on the street and have now made their onto church grounds.
Here at Cop & Cross we stand against this violence on church property. Since 2009 we have led in over 55 church safety seminars, at which over 750 churches have attended.
Feel free to navigate our church safety section and learn what you can that will assist you in protecting the saints when they gather.
