After Sunday's shooting at a Wisconsin Sikh temple 59News wanted to know how safe are Southern West Virginia churches.
Ken Wright is the Senior Pastor at The Family Worship Center in Beckley which has approximately 600 people in the congregation.
Wright said making sure doors are locked is secure is important from the security team which is made up of six individuals who are either retired or current law enforcement officers, "once service starts that way nobody gets in and out of those doors we have places they are assigned to watch over to make sure there isn't any active happening that shouldn't be."
Wright said his church put in place security measure about five years ago, "you would think you could come and be safe and secure unfortunately it's the times we are in right now."
