Church Security

“Every Free Will Baptist church should have a plan to deal with dangerous or emergency situations should they occur.” This statement summarizes a seminar presented at the 2015 Leadership Conference that addressed growing safety and security concerns among churches in America. A recording of the seminar, presented by security specialist Sam Hodges, is being made available to churches through the Executive Office.

Produced in conjunction with NowTech Productions, the video incorporates strategies for forming church security teams with recommended training and protocol for emergency situations.

The video, notes, PowerPoint, and logo from the seminar can be downloaded below.
