The Parking Lot Team will support our members and guests through friendly, interactive contact, paying particular attention to visitors and guests as they make their way on campus.
The Medical Team will be prepared to be available to help in cases of medical emergencies on campus
Law Enforcement Team

The Sentinel Team’s responsibility is “to stand and keep watch.” The Sentinel Team is to be on the alert for anything suspicious that may be taking place and contact our Law Enforcement Team, be on the alert for emergency medical situations, and in the event of natural or man-made disaster, the Sentinel Team, will guide our members and guests to predetermined safe locations.
Everyone Matters so we make sure people are greeted warmly, taken where they need to go, and introduced to members of FBCH. Our Welcome Team is outgoing, friendly, & always smiling. Most importantly, they love people & they love Jesus. The Welcome Team is comprised of five teams.
