According to the National Church Security Network, crimes against Churches are on the rise. A number of reasons Churches may not report such incidents is because of their stance on forgiveness or fear of retaliation.
Accounting for 64% of the crimes reported, BURGLARY was the most frequent occurring on church property. 13% of the crimes were ARSON related, and 7% were related to THEFT of some kind. These types of crimes, in addition to VANDALISM, have added up to more than millions in losses for Houses of Worship. As you are aware, Churches of all denominations have experienced vandalism and hate crimes in recent years.
