Sanctuary  balancing security and hospitality

You are invited to participate in a complimentary training webinar on  Thursday, December 14, at 11am.  This session is designed specifically for churches, with the goal of providing a practical and helpful discussion of relevant security considerations. 

This session will be led by Dr. Paul Raybon, Associate Pastor at Hominy Baptist Church and congregational coach with Barnabas Partnership. Dr. Raybon will walk attendees through a practical planning process that balances the need to keep congregations safe with the goal of welcoming the stranger and visitor to the church. 

Feel free to share this invitation with anyone on your staff or other colleagues that may benefit from it.  If you cannot attend live, you are welcome to register for the session to receive a copy of the recording (YouTube format) and slides by e-mail.  Register now!
