Take 5: Making Decisions

Do you have 5 minutes?

Try these ideas for making the most of your micro moments:

  • Find low-hanging fruit. Based on your assessment process, what safety or security improvements could be made immediately, with little effort or expense?
  • Reduce your spending. Think about some of the areas where your church spends money. Could any discretionary items be scaled back in order to fund a safety ministry?
  • Find the tough topics. Identify which big issues your leadership will need to address. Do they need to make decisions about funding, weapons, or insurance?
  • Bring up weapons. Start a conversation with people who attend your church. What’s their opinion about people being allowed to carry concealed weapons inside? Does their opinion change if those carrying weapons are trained, former law enforcement officers on a church team?
