Church Builds Gun Range, Launches Range Ministry ‘In the Name of Jesus’

A Methodist Church in Alabama had open land behind the church they weren’t sure what to do with. Then they decided, why not a gun range?

Pastor Phillip Guin said the church first thought of the range as a place to teach “gun safety.” Then, as involvement and interest grew, they decided to launch a full-blown gun range ministry. And because they have a number of hunters in the church, they named the range the “Rocky Mount Hunt and Gun Club.”

According to WIAT, Guin indicated another reason for the switch from simple gun safety to gun training was the increasing number of women who had bought guns for self-defense and needed practice in using them. He said, “We had quite a number of church members, some elderly ladies, for example, and some not so elderly women that had purchased guns, but didn’t know how to use them.” They can now learn on church grounds.

He calls it an opportunity to reach out in Jesus’s name in a unique setting, and acknowledges that it’s odd, but “who’s to say that church can’t happen right here?” Amen to that!
