CSRC167: Presentation

8/11/2019
More
If anyone wants something done about safety or security in your church, it is because they have at least one safety concern. A few of the more common concerns are fire safety, child safety, medical emergencies, vandalism and burglary, disruptive behaviors, and armed attacks. The ad hoc approach (which generates more support) is to address a top safety or security concern before proposing an organized ministry.

CSRC166: Blueprint

8/4/2019
More
A church safety ministry does not just happen. Someone has to have some kind of idea what it will be and how it will work. It requires coordination and agreement on how things are done, even if it is just two persons. Even just one person should know what to do in a situation. This means planning.

CSRC165: Sanctuary

7/30/2019
More
Most of us tend to think of a church as a sanctuary, not only as a religious center but as a safe place. In recent years, however, the “safe place” does not seem so safe anymore. Churches may now be, on the average, more fireproof and better able to withstand storms, but criminal activity has become more of a threat during the past few decades.

CSRC164: Ready to Use the Gear

7/23/2019
More
He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze (2 Samuel 22:35 and Psalm 18:34). As David was trained for war, we should be trained for defense.

CSRC163: Defensive Gear

7/16/2019
More
The first step in self-defense is awareness. Likewise, the first line of defensive gear is items which aid our awareness: detection equipment. These range from very simple to extremely sophisticated. There are literally hundreds of detection devices of many types, but not all are feasible for most churches.

CSRC162: Get the Message, Get Out

7/9/2019
More
Communication is the key to several functions of a Church Safety Team. Team members need to be in touch at all times, whether it is routine business or a dire emergency. Other than face-to-face conversation, we need tools to communicate.

CSRC161: Starting a Safety Ministry

7/2/2019
More
Kris Moloney shares some tips on how to get your church on board with starting a safety ministry.

Duration:00:19:01

CSRC160: Read Up, Put On

6/24/2019
More
All jobs have work requirements. We need to know how to do the job. We also need to be properly dressed for the work that is done. Being a part of a Church Safety Ministry is no exception.

CSRC159: Hold Off, Hold On

6/19/2019
More
In some situations we can see it coming. You are naturally on guard, on the defensive. Other times the signs are not so obvious. Unless you are especially observant, you may be caught unaware. But we can be alert and watchful when dealing with people, positioning ourselves so we can react defensively if the other person does attack.

CSRC158: Special Hostile Environment Response

6/10/2019
More
A special podcast by Sheepdog founder, Kris Moloney, about how to prepare your team for an active shooter occurrence.

Duration:00:13:50

CSRC157: At Level Yellow

6/5/2019
More
The first step in defense is awareness of threats. Basically, it is knowing what is going on. Knowing about threats to the community and the church, we prepare accordingly. For self-defense, situational awareness is closer to us in time and place. This means being aware of your surroundings, who is there, what is happening, and any changes in the situations.

CSRC156: Many Badly Hurt

5/28/2019
More
Most churches are prepared to handle minor-to-moderate injuries to one or a few persons. But what if there are substantially more injuries? Or what if the injury or injuries are severe? It’s too easy to think, “It can’t happen here.” It may not have happened to a church in your location, but in each case there was a first time. It is better to be prepared – just in case.

CSRC155: On Hand for Code Blue

5/20/2019
More
We may be all right doing some First Aid procedures just going by what we’ve seen and what we figure out. But what if this is a more serious injury, such as a third-degree burn or a cut artery? What if the person might have a spinal injury? What if the person has a heart attack? Proper training could make the difference between survival or death, recovery or permanent damage.

CSRC153: It Happens

5/6/2019
More
When there is an injury or a medical emergency, someone asks, "Is there a doctor in the house?" The situation at hand requires a person trained in responding to Code Blue (injury or medical emergency). Illness and injury does happen, even in places of worship. We need to acknowledge this, be ready for them, and work to make them less likely

CSRC152: Following Through

4/29/2019
More
We’ve stepped in and defused a potentially explosive situation using verbal de-escalation. As a Church Safety Ministry, we are interested in preventing another incident or making it less likely. We also want to be prepared in case it happens again.

CSRC151: In Control

4/22/2019
More
Sometimes, when there is a tense situation threatening to become a major disruption, we hear an official say, “We’re trying to keep things under control.” When we are trying to defuse developing disruption through verbal de-escalation, we intend first to keep it under control, then to stay in control until it comes to a peaceful end.

Duration:00:13:56

CSRC150: With a Word

4/11/2019
More
When stepping into a situation, we are aiming to defuse escalating tensions before they become disruptive. The proven means for doing this is verbal de-escalation. Real-life experiences show that words can be used to cool down heated exchanges. A paraphrase of what Solomon said is, “A calm answer cools anger.”

CSRC149: Seeing Dark Clouds

4/8/2019
More
In a congregation, threat assessment can forecast the potential for disruptive behavior, even violence, by persons in the congregation, persons associated with church members, and known persons in the community. This can be an opportunity for ministry. For some, intervention in the form of personal counseling may be possible and successful. We can’t change the weather, but there is hope for a person at risk.

CSRC148: Roots of Disruption

4/1/2019
More
What leads people to become disruptive? What factors put them at risk? For many years, now, people have been asking those questions after violent incidents. To protect the flock, a Church Safety Ministry needs to know what the threats are and how to recognize them, then how to deal with them.
