Church Emergency and Security Plan Development and Training Program
Is your church or place of worship safe?  Violence has no limitations, the religious buildings we often cling to as sanctuary do not offer the protection we once thought.  The first mass shooting of a US church was in 1980, has the world become safer since then?  I personally do not believe so, thus I hold fast to my spiritual sword and my physical sword.  Our business is Christian owned and we want to preserve our safety in our churches.  Below are two articles related to acts of violence against churches.
