Church Security Consultant “Firm Foundation” Package

Church Security Consultant “Firm Foundation” Package

Church Courses | Consulting | “Firm Foundation” Consulting Package

Isaiah 28:16
So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.

We provide consulting services according to:

Matthew 10:16 Behold I send you out as sheep amongst wolves therefore be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

How this verse applies to church security goals and objectives is “wise as serpents” instructs us to “prepare in advance” and “harmless as doves” instructs us to “do so in a way that DOES NOT compromise the “CORE MISSION” of church ministries.” 

Generally speaking we state that the mission of most churches is to provide an atmosphere of “COMFORT”, “REFUGE”, “WORSHIP” and “LEARNING”.  What we believe is that church security goals, objectives and planning should be developed in a way that DOES NOT compromise the “core mission” and we in fact believe if developed and implemented correctly the effective church security ministry will in fact “AMPLIFY” the “core mission” by increasing awareness, preparedness and capabilities to respond quickly and effectively if an emergency were to occur.

This weekend “Church Security Consulting Package” is designed and intended for those churches that are either starting from the beginning or wish to formalize & professionalize their existing Church Security ministry. This weekend consulting package is by far our most popular and will allow your ministry to form a solid strategic vision & direction for your church security/safety ministry.The weekend onsite consult starts on a Friday afternoon and is completed on Sunday afternoon. Each church will receive the following as a part of this consulting package.

Friday Afternoon – (Approx. 3-4 hours on site)

“Goals & Objectives” Questionaire/Interview w/ Church Leadership Personnel
This will allow your ministry to determine goals & objectives for your security ministry. Outlining the goals & objectives in advance & having an opportunity to determine the fiscal & human resources to achieve these goals & objectives will provide a solid strategic vision & direction for your security/safety ministry.

“Risk Assessment” w/ Leadership Personnel
Your ministry cannot manage risk without accepting that all ministries have some level of risk. This onsite risk assessment allows the church to prioritize the order that each area of safety & security will be addressed as well as what level of priority of fiscal & human resources need to be assigned to each area.

“Physical Security Site Survey”
An onsite physical security site survey will be conducted of your facilities. The findings & recommendations of this survey will be included in written & visual form after the final “Findings & Recommendations” report that is submitted approximately 7-10 days after the weekend consult.

“Church Insurance Liaison”
Obtain Church Insurance Co. Point of Contact Info for Liaison Consult. There is no purpose in making recommendations to your church related to safety & security if your church insurance company will not support these recommendations. We consult directly with your church insurance company agent & underwriters if necessary to make sure they will support the recommendations that are made. Additionally we provide them with supporting “liability & risk management” documentation that they will need related to training that we may provide to your church security & safety team.
