How to Start Your Church Safety and Security Team

The quickest, easiest, most cost-effective and safest way to create security for your church and get stakeholders onboard.



Every so often when I travel, I drive by a very large, or “mega” church. And let me tell you . . . It’s big. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not necessarily TV “megastar” evangelist big. But it’s plenty big.

My drive past the church involves the same scene every time the church has an event. An armed, uniformed Law Enforcement Officer waving me by with his hand. On the side of the road – his fellow officers. Usually, two or three are standing on the side of the road, chatting away. Actually, there’s more than three. As I look over to my right, in the direction of the parking lot, I see more officers. Armed. Of course.

I’ve never been to the front door of this church. (I don’t attend a mega church.) But I am sure they have a n officer near the door. Like I said: I never attended this church. But, I’m willing to wager they have an armed guard near the entrance.

And it got me to thinking…

Are the parishioners of a megachurch more valuable than members of a medium or small size church?

Are their lives so valuable that they alone deserve armed security every Sunday?

Are their lives more valuable than the people I worship with every Sunday?

Of course not. But we act that way. Don’t we?

Building your Business as a Trainer: The Benefits of Team Teaching

We are NRA Certified Instructors and Training Counselors, USCCA Certified instructors and Intuitive Defensive Shooting Instructors. We strive to make more confident capable shooters and thinkers out of our students and instructor Candidates. We believe that sometimes the knowledge isn’t as easy to access from a general perspective on how to thrive in this industry.

Sure, you can find great curriculum; and we think we are pretty good at bringing instructors and students to their personal best in a formal regard. But sometimes the intangibles of the industry aren’t as easy to teach.

On that note: I’d like to talk about team teaching and why you might want to teach with other instructors. Specifically, how it can manifest itself as an immediate value to you and how you can see the long-term benefits of such a choice, too.
