7:15 – 8:30 pm – Breakout Sessions on Planning for Critical Church Security Concerns:

  • Diagnosing Security Issues Around Your Church Campus
    Leader – Matt Bost, Facilities Manager, Providence Baptist Church, Raleigh
    Description: We will discuss the mission of Church Security and how it is accomplished along with supporting statistical data.  Also, we will go over Safety and Security Risk Assessments, Physical Security Checklists and suggestions for an overview of Personnel Security Preparedness which will include behavior pattern recognition.
  • Advantages of Informing and Educating the Congregation About Security
    Leaders – Glenn Weaver and David Bailey, Triangle Security Consultants
    We have decided our church needs a Safety and Security Team.  What is our next step?  We have never done this and we need guidance so what resources are available? Being a small church with a limited budget, what can we do?  We’ll guide you with easy to understand, step-by-step instructions. This approach is geared for small to mid-size churches though the principles are the same regardless of size.
  • Why Every Church Needs a Personalized Safety and Security Plan
    Leader – Phillip Sutton, Investigator, Wake County Sheriff’s Department
    Description: How churches can provide reasonable measures of safety to confront various threats and emergencies which may occur during the hours of worship. We’ll explore how to have open lines of communication and community outreach while attempting to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all individuals eager to worship.
