‘Open door’ policies at churches have changed with the times

| February 24, 2011

Churches’ traditional role as a place of sanctuary where the door was always open is at odds with the reality of life.

Suffice it to say that these days, some churches use security systems. Others rely on locks, lighting and alert neighbors.

The Rev. Kenneth Simon, pastor of New Bethel Baptist Church, 1507 Hillman St., Youngstown, said the safety of members and guests is paramount. He said the church uses a security system; visitors to the office must get “buzzed in.” The church also employs security personnel occasionally when there is a large event at the church.
