Church Security and Intruder Response Training
Cheyenne, WY, June 30 - July 1, 2017
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 and Intruder Awareness training will equip your staff and key volunteers to create a personalized security plan that protects your congregation while maintaining a welcoming environment. You can choose from a 1- or 2-day option, but both days are recommended and the subjects interrelate.
Day 1 Overview: Church Security Planning
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.
We’ll address key topics including:
• Intruder response
• Offering collection, protection, and transport
• Nursery security
• Medical response
• Volunteer selection
• Armed vs. unarmed security
• Protecting the pastor
• The role of ushers and greeters
Who should attend?
Pastors, church staff, administrators and facility managers, children and student ministry directors, security team members, deacons. Recommended: Bring note-taking materials.
Day 2 Overview: Intruder Awareness/Response and Conflict Management
Equip and empower your frontline 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
• Recognizing suspicious behavior
• Approaching suspicious or armed individuals
• Verbal conflict management & de-escalation
• The role of ushers, greeters and other frontline team members
Who should attend?
Ushers, greeters, church leaders, security volunteers, deacons and other staff and volunteers in frequent contact with congregation and visitors. Recommended: Bring note-taking materials.
