Church Security Workshop

Click here to watch the Church Security Workshop 

Many churches are grappling with the questions: How do I keep my congregation safe? How do I prepare for an active shooter? How can I make my church more secure? In this one hour and twenty minute workshop, Brent Loeffler, a member of Bainbridge First UMC who also serves with the Georgia Sheriffs' Association, helps answer these questions. He provides practical steps a church can take to reduce the risk of an incident occurring and discusses how to be prepared if an event should occur.

As always, we encourage you to work with your community leaders and your local emergency responders. Most police and sheriff departments welcome the opportunity to help church leaders determine security issues. Action plans can be developed in partnership with local law enforcement officials that help reduce confusion in a security response.
