I've spent the last year traveling the country and listening to church security team leaders. The request I continually receive is "Help me with training!" I have found many churches simply ignore training because it is sometimes just too difficult to do, but not when you have everything done for you!
Introducing The Church Security Basics Program:
What I have found in my travels are many churches relying on CCW permit holders, which is great. These are some of the most responsible members of our society. However, what I noticed when conducting training exercises is they quickly become overwhelmed in crisis events because they lack basic tactical skills or familiarity with their weapon. Further, when we tested their responses to verbal aggression or simple resistance, they were not sure how to respond correctly. This leaves them at risk to over-reaction or freezing in place, which could lead to disastrous results.
I've taken my 27 years as a police officer, firefighter, and medic, along with 14 years on SWAT and boiled them down into the essential skills I think every church security team member should have. I've tested the training skills on real live students and watched them perform. I was always amazed at how rapidly they developed critical skills, and how professional they became in a short few hours.
Give Me An Hour A Month
In an hour or less each month, I give your team members understanding and skills, so they can perform their duties flawlessly. When an event occurs, if your team members have never given thought to a specific situation, their response time is delayed. Worse, if your church leadership and staff haven't practiced a few simple techniques, they can get in your way while you try to take care of a problem. This is not one and done. In the process of teaching your team skills, I also help them understand how to train.
It's about repititions. Once they understand how the human body works under stress and pressure, they can practice those critical skills that will make a difference when disaster strikes.
Here are the first eight videos you will receive each month in the digital package.
Month 1 - LESSON 1: Church Security Basics Introduction
Video 1: (9 Minutes)Church Security Basics Introduction explores the foundation for all training offered by ChurchSecurityTrainer.com The OODA Loop is a process all human beings go through to achieve any task. During a stressful event, it is important to speed up your response to threats and OBSERVE, ORIENT, DECIDE, ACT quickly to stop an aggressive attack.
Video 2: (10 Minutes) The Antioch, TN church shooting incident was stopped by an untrained person willing to act. What could happen if a team was in place to observe the first moment the suspect's vehicle entered the lot, or if someone had heard the shots pre-incident. Lives could have been saved.
Video 3: (18 Minutes) Hear in their own words what the 3 primary people responsible for saving lives that day say about their role in the incident. Also, hear from Pastor Joey Spann in what he experienced on that day when he was shot by the suspect. This video will help your team get focused upon the task at hand.
Month 2 - LESSON 2: Verbal Deescalation Skills
Verbal Deescalation skills are one of the most important skills your team members can have in their tool belt. Using principles to stay calm, deflect aggression, and knowing how to speak to an angry person is key to convincing him/her to listen to your words and comply with your requests. In this video, you will discover five principles of deescalation and five steps to gain cooperative compliance, as well as what motivates people to listen and cooperate.
Month 3 - LESSON THREE: Liability Reduction
Understanding the church security member's authority (or lack thereof) is the key to performing this vitally important role. The church security volunteer operates under self defense law and state citizens arrest laws. This makes their job extremely tough, and understanding what can be done and how to do it in a safe and legal way is vital to avoiding a lawsuit or being arrested for doing the wrong thing.
Month 4 - LESSON FOUR: ABC Lockdown Training
This is a lesson that can be shared with everyone in your church. Pastors, staff, leadership, SS teachers need to know they have permission to act to stop an active shooter threat. In this video Church Security Trainer, Glen Evans, takes you through his ABC Lockdown protocol which will enable everyone in your church to quickly act to deny an active attacker the opportunity to hurt or kill anyone. This will also allow you as a church security volunteer time to move, approach and aggressively stop the attacker.
Month 5 - LESSON FIVE: Church Security Unarmed Defensive Skills
Having basic skills to defend your personal safety that are within policy and law are very important. While we cannot control who comes into our church or walks onto church campus, we can control our response to their actions, but only if we have an action plan in place beforehand. In the Reducing Liability lesson, you learned the laws you operate under as a team member, and the responsibility you carry for doing things correctly. In this lesson you will discover reasonable and prudent defensive measures to protect yourself against a person who is intoxicated, high, or emotionally out of control and trying to physically harm you.
Month 6 LESSON 6: Church Security Armed Response Skills
Many teams are made up of men and women who have CCW permits and very little tactical training, and our training experience has revealed under the stress and pressure of scenario based training, do not perform well due to lack of tactics, repetition, and familiarity with their weapon. This means whatever system your team members learn, it must be simple, easy to learn, and easy to remember. Armed Response Skills focuses upon the issue of an active shooter and reveals how each member should respons. Most likely your team member will be alone when responding to an active shooter, so combining movement, accuracy, and aggression to quickly stop the aggression is vitally important. Most incidents are chaotic and do not go as planned. Having a basic system to follow and getting repetitions using air soft is a great way to help team members know how each person will respond safely and tactically.
Month 7 - LESSON 7: Church Security Armed Response Drills
Once your team grasps the material from Armed Respons Skills, they can begin honing those skills through Armed Response Drills. In this material, you will discover the value of repetition and how to set up drills for your team so they execute the single person armed response skills smoothly and without having to think it through. The more your team trains together, the better your response will be if a crisis event happens on your church campus.
Month 8: LESSON 8: Church Security First-Aid Intervention
Most crisis incidents are over long before the police arrive. In the wake of an active attack, people will be injured and having the right supplies on hand can mean the difference between life and death for your congregation. In this video you will discover first-aid supplies you should carry in a pocket and how to apply those items to give the injured and wounded immediate aid.
