I Equip Your Volunteer Church Security Team With Basic Skills They Need To Know.
Reduce Liability, Prevent Over-Reaction And Train Your Team To Skillfully Prevent Violence.
Dear Concerned Leader,
Sadly, more than ever before, U.S. churches have experienced crimes, disruptions, domestic violence, robberies, and murders in unprecedented numbers. Twleve years ago, Church Security Alliance began assisting churches interested in developing volunteer church security ministries by providing a framework for investigating, planning, and training.
Over the years, we have been blessed with the opportunity to help thousands of churches get their ministry off the ground and serving their congregations each Sunday. While we’ve tried to provide guidance and help with implementation, many churches have requested specific training to help their team develop reaction plans to effectively deal with potential problems that may arise during church activities.
However, many have requested training opportunities for their teams, as this seems to be a critical need for most church teams at this time. Church leaders are most often concerned with the potential for violence, and having a staff of empathetic, servant hearted people is the key for an effective safety or security team. I have created a training event that covers several necessary skills to build a solid platform for your team to go forward.
Many church security training events are designed to convince you that security is needed, and there is still a need for this type of training, but for churches who have accepted the reality for potential violence, not much exists to help your team stay safe while staying within the law.
My Church Security Basics Training Seminar focuses on those skills which equip your team members to quickly identify, de-escalate, or defend against human aggression in church. Not only that, but we help your team members develop skills they can use to teach other volunteers to recognize violence and create safety plans for their respective ministries
Training Modules To Fit Your Needs
Security plans vary from church to church. Some churches prefer a low-key, unarmed usher led program, while others choose to have their security volunteers armed. However, all church security teams need basic skills to provide great service and detect, approach, and tactically communicate and prevent injury with people who are disruptive, upset, or violent.
After all, saying or doing the wrong thing can lead to an unintended escalation of violence and possibly open the church to legal liability.
Church Security Alliance offers specific modules that allow you to choose a customized training experience to meet your church security teams specific needs.
All of our training begins with understanding your volunteer’s specific role of servant based safety and security. This ministry is about keeping your head, while others may be losing theirs, and requires a measure of patience and understanding for people who may not be at their best or having their best day.
Your team leadership may choose a half or full day of training and choose the specific modules you feel would help your team the best. The training may be broken down into 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours of training. If you are paying to bring us to your location, we recommend a full 8 hour day of training.

How To Bring Training To Your Church
Here Are The Options
The training is designed to be segmented. The church violence debrief, threat assessment, verbal de-escalation, liability reduction, and unarmed active shooter segments can have an unlimited audience.
The empty hand tactics, tactical movement, and armed response to active shooter training is limited to 30 people (you can open it up to other churches to share the cost).
The way most churches do this is to host a four hour block on a Saturday in the morning for churches in their region. The second block is reserved for their team or open to other churches.
If hosting a seminar, the instructor fees and travel costs are covered by the hosting church. We do not handle registrations or costs for your event. You may charge participants to cover your costs for the training or decide to cover the costs as an outreach for your church.
