Church Safety and Security Volunteer Academy

Church Safety and Security Volunteer Academy

Our Church Safety/Security Volunteer Academy includes essential information and training tools to help you develop a robust Church Safety Team and then train them to ensure your congregation enjoys protection at all times.

[Online Course] Safety has become one of the most paramount concerns for churches across the United States. In truth, churches have been targets for violence and threats as long as they have existed, but the trend is increasing. Couple that with the potential for damage or loss of life due to natural disasters, through fire, or even at the hands of church members themselves, and you begin to see the need to have a Church Safety Team. A Church Safety Team protects children, at-risk adults, and all other church members from threats, while playing additional roles in church security and safety. 

Our Church Safety/Security Volunteer Academy course includes essential information and training tools to help you develop a robust Church Safety Team and then train them to ensure your congregation enjoys protection at all times. 

The Church Safety Security Volunteer Academy course covers an incredibly wide range of information pertinent to creating, vetting, training and monitoring a Church Safety Team. Topics covered include Safety Ministry basics, patrol procedures, radio procedures, information to help you customize safety procedures for your church, how to respond to challenges, reviews and more.
