Church Lock Down- Moberly, MO

“No textbook, video or speech can compare to the hands-on, real-life situation training that they are passionate and devoted to giving.” - Barney Munhollon, Strategos Training Attendee

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.

This course will educate your church security, ushers, greeters and parking attendants on recognizing behavioral pre-cursors to suspicious behavior.

Knowing the body language is many times a PRIOR indicator of behavioral intentions or acts, an overview of suspicious behavior or pre-cursors to watch for is reviewed.

This course also discusses the behavioral indicators of armed individuals whether they are lawfully armed or unlawfully armed. Summarized this section will instill a mindset of “SEE Something . . . SAY Something” for those that attend.

A review of statistics and trends of crimes against churches since 2007 will be reviewed. Additionally, the justification of safety & security within the church complete with biblical authority is reviewed and discussed. A review of several in progress crimes against persons at churches and church events for lessons learned and historical trends are covered as well.

A discussion and practical training block on “the art of the handshake” and the “technique” of the handshake will be discussed and demonstrated. Discussion and demonstration on distance and closing strategies for those approaching and evaluating armed individuals in a welcoming and hospitable manner so that the church mission is not compromised and even enhanced will be discussed and demonstrated as well.

Additionally, this course provides strategies to DE-escalating conflict from a verbal point of view and covers what phrases and language to avoid to prevent conflict in a verbal nature from escalating.

Included with this course is an overview of lockdown procedures for both “THREAT INSIDE” and “THREAT OUTSIDE” lockdown of a church facility as well as protocols for what to do when “lockdown fails”. Practical exercises of all of the above can be included and customized based on timeline availability as well.
