Armed members of the security team at The Potter's House of Denver in Colorado check their weapons.

The Rev. Chris Hill, senior pastor of The Potter’s House of Denver in Colorado, has shared that members of his congregation who were once critical of the presence of armed guards in the sanctuary now understand the necessity of such security measures in the wake of the Charleston church massacre.

The Charleston shooting was certainly not the first time a church had been targeted by a gunman. The Christian Post reported in 2012 that a former employee of Creflo Dollar’s World Changers Church International in College Park, Georgia, had walked into an early morning Bible study and shot a member point blank while he prayed.

In 2009, late-term abortion Dr. George Tiller was murdered while serving as an usher at Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas. In fact, Carl Chinn, a former Focus on the Family safety manager and a church security expert, tracks “deadly force incidents” at faith-based organizations. According to Chinn’s data, there have been 971 such incidents between Jan. 1, 1999 and Feb. 15 of this year.
