Church Security Resources

MyChurchSecurity.com Church Security ResourcesChurch Security Resources

This is a broad list of Church Security Resources and Church Safety Resources some of which I developed, some links to outside parties.

They include videos, other websites, articles, policy and procedure templates and more will be added as developed and requested via out podcast.

Some of these links are affiliate links like our Amazon link.

Some of the links are to what some might think are “competitors”. I believe they are true partners that are experts in their “sub”-niche and many of them I have had personal interaction. I try to reach out   through information sharing opportunities or full operational interaction as much as I can.  Please let me know you heard about them from us.

Wanted to give a shout out to my personal and professional friend, William (Bill) Spruce, he handed me an autographed copy of his new Handbook for Church Emergency Evacuation and Church Emergency Response. I quickly glanced through several areas and it is a great reference and SIMPLE resource for these two important areas for only USD$14.95. As the Forward puts It, the handbook "is general guide….[and]….does not replace formal training". Great Job Bill!!
