Church Security Community That Helps Pastors, Volunteers, and Safety Teams Protect Their Church.

 

Church Security Alliance is a community of local church members working together to balance the need of protection against the need of an open faith community.  It is no secret criminals target churches through theft, child abuse, vandalism, arson and violent crimes.  We believe God has gifted men and women within the local church to provide basic protection services from the view of a servant's heart.

While security and safety should be on the mind of every church administrator, the reality is a small percentage of churches do not focus on it until a tragedy or crime is perpetrated against their local body.  We believe it is a good thing to pre-plan and prepare for the possibility of criminal action against your church.  However, every church is different, and the needs of one church might not be the needs of another.

Should your church purchase security cameras?  Should you conduct church background checks upon volunteers in sensitive positions?  Should you have armed security personnel on campus?  These are all questions many churches have wrestled with, and CSA hopes to provide some of the answers.

Our vision for CSA is to provide a central hub of information on church security related issues, and to give a voice to those who are helping their church increase their security and safety.

We provide information on three levels.  The first level is through free information in the form of free videos or on our blog.  Anyone with an interest in church security can start there.  For those who want to begin the process of church security planning, CSA has developed resources including a Church Security Starter Kit, various training DVDs, and a book entitled Basics of Church Security.

Lastly, we have developed a community of like minded people who provide service in their home church through a church security ministry.  We invite you to join Church Security Alliance if you desire to be part of a community and to interact with others who are providing church security services on a volunteer basis.  It is a growing community of people who recognize the necessity of securing the local church, and have taken the step to plan and implement a church security team.

If you have questions, we invite you to complete the contact form and we will contact you via email as soon as possible.

article linkMore Thoughts On McArthur Incident: Members Weigh In. (GlenEvans1)
posted Fri August 21st 2015 @ 10:27 AM

After posting the article/video yesterday I received a few emails with questions.  I believe every incident should be examined in light of helping others should they find themselves in this type of situation.  As always, there are many ways to approach it, but often there are good, better and best options:
From B:
Greetings Glen and thanks for the message and the video clip, which I would like to discuss with you here.
Question:  I wish I had seen it from the start of the interuption, to see where the subject came from and how he got on the stage. He was way to close before their Safety or Security Team members got to him.
Answer: It appears he came from the side using the stairs.  They appeared to have people stationed at the front of the auditorium.  One other criticism I received is they didn't have anyone standing right up front protecting the pastor.  This is the difference between a standard protection detail and the balancing act of providing security in church.  Most churches/pastors don't want to appear heavy handed, and I can't blame them.  Having a security person standing at the front of the stage during the sermon would be a bit distracting and give the pastor an aura of self importance in need of a bodyguard.  However, depending on manpower, people could be stationed at the side of the stage or near the orchestra to intervene more quickly.  I do not have information on whether people were placed in these locations.
Question:  I also wonder why they took him out up the center aisle so he could continue to disrupt the service with his shouting. It would seem to have been better to go out a side door close to the stage, which I would think would have been quicker.
Answer:  Not knowing the lay out of the church, I can't say if there were exits toward the front of the room.  However, given the fact that anyone can allege anything at anytime, I see no harm in allowing your activities to be seen by a host of people in the auditorium or to be videotaped while doing them.  I think the men did a great job of assessing the person.  They didn't see any weapons, and simply escorting him out was an appropriate response.  The congregation was already interrupted, so I don't see where 30 seconds more interruption really caused a problem.

article linkTwo Incidents: Pastor Punched & Robbery Suspect Tackled (GlenEvans1)
posted Wed August 5th 2015 @ 1:02 PM

Since the Charleston shooting last month, the Church Security Alliance has been contacted and visited by thousands of people interested in helping their church with safety and security. What I have also noticed is an unwillingness on the part of many people to allow violence to happen in their church. While we have been trying to sound the alarm for the past eight years, the Charleston incident has been a wake up call. The following two select incidents of the numerous that happen every week demonstrate the need for quick action to resolve potential violence and to alert the authorities. Read More »
