Church Security Counter Terrorism

Course Category: 
Skill Level: 

This course is intended for those in church leadership or congregation to be provided with the tools needed to formalize and professionalize ministry security that is already in place, help develop a ministry security team and prepare those not on a security team but still in attendance of the house of worship.

The course will also cover the importance of constructing plan for your security team or for you and your family. Having a plan for you and/or your ministry is important because actions during a crisis will be judged under the assumption that you or your team reacted subjectively. Having a plan allows you or your ministry to counter these assumptions by stating that you or your team DID NOT react subjectively but instead reacted objectively based on a plan, as well as policies and procedures that have been trained to all staff and volunteers involved.
