Day 1: Church Security Planning Day 2: Intruder Awareness/Response & Conflict Management

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
  • Lock down
  • Offering collection, protection, and transport
  • Nursery security
  • Medical response
  • Volunteer selection
  • Armed vs. unarmed security
  • Protecting the pastor
  • The role of ushers and greeters

Equip and empower your front line team (security volunteers, ushers, greeters) to spot and stop trouble before it starts. This training helps team members identify suspicious behavior and act peacefully and proactively with the goal of de-escalating potential conflicts.

Key topics will include:

  • Creating a culture of awareness
  • Lock down
  • Recognizing suspicious behavior
  • Approaching suspicious or armed individuals
  • Verbal conflict management and de-escalation
  • The role of ushers, greeters, and other front line team members
