Church Security Training

1-Day Church Security Planning for Leadership Personnel

Many churches have taken comfort in the thought that “it could never happen here.” But headlines and a steadily-growing body of statistical evidence demonstrate that violence in faith-based organizations is not an if, but a when.

The Church Security Planning for Leadership Personnel training will equip your pastoral, operations and lay leadership personnel to create a personalized security plan that protects your congregation while maintaining a welcoming environment.

Who should attend? Pastors, church staff, administrators and facility managers, children and student ministry directors, security team members, deacons.

At the end of the day, you’ll be thoroughly equipped to begin (or re-launch or improve) your church security ministry. Each participant will leave with a comprehensive, practical 75-page workbook so that you can bring the day’s learning home with you and put it into action.

We’ll address topics including:

  • Intruder response
  • Lockdown
  • Offering collection, protection, and transport
  • Overcoming objections to protecting the flock
  • Nursery security
  • Medical response
  • Volunteer & personnel selection
  • Armed vs. unarmed security
  • Insurance & liability considerations
  • Physical security assessments
  • Risk assessments
  • Protecting the pastor
  • The role of ushers and greeters

Cost – $157 per person
