Phillip Guin, Pastor of The Rocky Mount United Methodist Church has just done something relatively unheard of — he opened a shooting range “in the name of Jesus Christ.”
Guin explained that Rocky Mount United Methodist is reaching out to the community in a unique way — to both spread God’s word and promote firearms safety.
“This is an opportunity for us to reach out in the name of Jesus Christ in a setting that is completely unique. Even odd by some people’s standards. But who’s to say that church can’t happen right here,” Guin said.
Guin believes that the shooting range opens new doors and gives the church a fresh way to promote its ministry to individuals that may not otherwise attend church. At the same time, it also focuses on the importance of gun safety, education, and marksmanship.
Though currently the majority of those utilizing the facility are members active in the church, the Jemison Police Department regularly trains at the range.
