SEEKING HELP on Protecting Houses of Worship

For a possible research project on church/congregational security, I am hoping to tap into the collective wisdom of the World Wide Web. PLEASE HELP (see request below)!

Also, I appreciate any re-blogging, re-posting/sharing on Facebook, re-Tweeting, or otherwise publicizing this request so I can cast as wide a net as possible. Thank you!

If you know of any of the following, please let me know in the comments here, the comments on my Facebook page where this will cross post, by Facebook Messenger, Twitter (@gunculture2pt0), using the contact page here, or by email if you have my email.

Even if you are the provider of this information/training, don’t be shy to mention your work/organization! If you’re doing something I already know about, please remind me because I am old and forgetful!

Do you know of information and/or training events held by:

1. Government agencies, like the ones held by U.S. Attorney’s Offices in Massachusetts and North Carolina recently.

2. Private entities offering communal events like the ones convened by the U.S. Attorney’s Offices.

3. Companies that specialize in churches/congregation security.

4. Non-profit organizations/associations that specialize in same.

5. Training organizations that have as part of their work churches/congregation security.

Of course I am also interested in books, magazine or newspaper articles, blog posts, YouTube videos, or any other old or new media on the topic.

Thank you for your help WWW Hive Mind!

  2. I teach seminars at churches on “Responding to an Armed Threat” and on “Organizing a Church Safety Team.” I have both an extensive law enforcement background and more than 27 years as a pastor. I usually teach between 2 and 5 seminars per month. I would be happy to talk with you if that would help.

  5. A couple of old stories I had links to are so old, the original news articles are no longer available.

    But a search on “church security stops gunman” brought up a couple of stories that might provide a jumping off point. e.g. http://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2014/December/Security-Warning-Churches-a-Rising-Target-for-Attack

    Some large churches have been dealing with this for a while. They are huge targets. And they have organized security. They might be a good place to go to talk about what they do, how they learned it, etc.

    Best of luck. (There need to be fewer defenseless-victim-zones)

  8. I posted this to my Facebook page. Also I know from when I went there The Bridge (aboutthebridge.com) has security during services but I don’t know if they are armed. Perhaps a reach out to them might be in order as I can no longer attend being deep in the woods of south central Virginia now.

    Keep your powder dry and your faith in God.
