Keep Your Congregation Safe With Online Church Security Training from Strategos International
You can host the seminar for your community or watch as individuals or small groups.
Many churches have taken comfort in the thought that “it could never happen here.” But headlines and a steadily-growing body of statistical evidence demonstrate that violence in faith-based organizations is not an if, but a when.
• Violent events at churches have increased 600% in the last decade.
• Incidents of church violence have risen by 40% in the last year alone.
• Threats come from without and within the congregation.
Strategos International has trained more than 1,000 churches and thousands of church members in creating a secure yet welcoming environment. We travel weekly across the nation, educating, equipping and consulting with churches of all sizes.
For those who are unable to attend in person or who seek a refresher course, our comprehensive and practical seminar is now available online.
