GBNLive: Church Shootings

Posted by Mark Teske, Director of Operations and Programming

We have received numerous requests for the GBNLive episode on church shootings.  An archived copy of the episode can be found at https://youtu.be/pe-TEVb5x1I.


A gunman entered the property of the Burnette Chapel church of Christ and shot 8 people, killing one.  The man charged with the shooting had been a visitor to the congregation over a year ago.  BJ Clarke and Kevin Sutton sat down with Mike Hixson and discussed what congregations can do to prevent tragedies such as this.  Additionally, Joey Spann, the preacher for the Burnette Chapel congregation joined them via telephone to give insight into the events.
