A SECURITY MINISTRY MODEL THAT NEVER INTERFERES WITH THE CAUSE OF CHRIST
Hedge Protection Ministries was developed for the sole mission of assisting churches with development, implementation, and maintenance of healthy security ministries. Having been tasked with developing a security ministry in our own church, we very quickly realized there was a very limited amount of information available to churches seeking to increase the level of protection being provided to their members during their services. We have developed a step by step program that will educate, encourage and assist you through what some might consider a very daunting task. With our assistance… that task becomes a lot less daunting.

A LONG-TERM PARTNER
A subscription allows us to come alongside and partner with your ministry for the long term. This is NOT just a weekend seminar where you take a bunch of notes and then when we leave… you’re left scratching your head. This subscription provides your team with unlimited on-demand training through our video library. Your team will have access to our blog, incident reviews, live and podcast training events, interviews with offenders, and so much more.
Just as we encourage your ministry to adopt a “continuous improvement” posture… Hedge will practice what it preaches! We to will strive to constantly improve this site and the service we provide our members. We have created an incident reporting page where you can share the details of incidents which we will help you assess and then send out “lessons learned” to other members. Please note that we will always protect the identity of your church when discussing any incident on this site.
SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE SUBSCRIPTION PRICING MODEL
Implementing an effective security ministry will take time. It is a process that will require constant assessment and improvement. As new threats emerge, adjusting to meet these new threats will require additional training. As team members move in and out of the ministry, the new members will need training as well. Members who will be working in a new position or one they have not worked for several months may need a quick refresher as to what their responsibilities are… and we make that available to them.
Based on our experience, we know that your team will need hands-on assistance for several years to come. We have based our program on a subscription plan wherein pricing is adjustable depending on the number of personnel who will need access to training. There are scholarships available to assist new church plants as well as indigent churches with limited resources. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
