A Random Act of Violence

A man walked into the Crystal Cathedral, knelt down at the foot of a cross and fatally shot himself in the head. "The next minute, there was a pop. I thought he was praying. I didn't realize he had shot himself."

Pittsburg Shooting

In October, 2017, we lowered the flag to half-mast as we prayed for the victims and families in Pittsburgh. Another shooting in a house of God. We need to be aware of our environment and prepared to react. We teach in our Church Security Insights Seminars to control your access and post a Guard. Simple techniques that can help prevent violence. Being proactive, not reactive. The shooter in Kentucky at the Kroger’s Food store first went to a nearby Baptist Church and tried to get in two side doors - they were locked! He went away. Harden your site, control your access and post a guard.

Man commits suicide at Crystal Cathedral

Churches Boost Security as Violent Incidents Grow

The number of deadly episodes at sanctuaries has soared over the last decade, and mass shootings at schools, malls and movie theaters have left Americans feeling like it could happen anywhere.

Worshipers Feared for Their Lives

Worshipers attending Easter Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral got the scare of their lives when a band of unruly protesters disrupted the event.

Sanctuary Sentinels

Churches establish armed security teams as shootings rise. Pastor says worshipers may be especially vulnerable because their unarmed presence on Sundays is predictable. That's why domestic confrontations often unfold inside what should literally be a sanctuary.

The Problem...

Over the past several years this country has experienced horrific mass shootings. Understandably there is a huge outcry for finding solution(s) to stop this violence. But do you really think we will solve the gun issue in this country? How about the mental health problems facing this country?  Not a chance. It is time NOW to take on this issue with some plain old proactive security measures. Waiting for the political/media circus to find a solution is absurd.

In recognition of this desperately growing need for safety in our nation, I have developed a security awareness conference designed specifically to help safeguard your church. As a retired U.S. Secret Service Agent with more than 29 years of law enforcement, I combined the expertise of the U.S. Secret Service and over 17 years of ministry experience. I have also brought together a team of expert security, planning, and consulting agents, with decades of Federal law enforcement experience to help churches, schools, and businesses elevate themselves to the cutting edge of awareness and safety.

Church Security Insights has unique insights into the needs of churches and faith-based institutions, and it provides pastors, leaders, and lay-workers with violence awareness training and key prevention strategies that go far beyond the routine!
