The alarming escalation in attacks on Christian congregations and their places of worship from 2018 to 2023 has raised deep concerns regarding religious safety. In 2023 alone, a variety of violent actions were reported, doubling the incidents of the previous year. Affected communities like the one led by Pastor Rob Rotola of Word of Life Church in Wichita, Kansas, face significant challenges due to a slow response from authorities, prompting them to rely on self-management for security. Pastor Rotola suggests that societal attitudes, influenced by media portrayals, are contributing to a rise in violence and highlights the critical need for churches to safeguard their presence and voice against the growing hostility.

What is the most effective response to the rise in violence against places of worship?
