Church Security Conference - Active Violence Prevention and Response

November 4 & 5, 2022 Chicago, IL



With the recent surge in violence aimed at houses of worship, we can no longer afford to rely upon outdated and untested plans to protect our congregations. SecureChurch is offering its 20th Church Security Conference in the US, with a focus on Prevention & Response to Active Violence. No other organization offers the training, technology, and expertise of SecureChurch. Our nationally acclaimed experts have curated the training so you don't sit through endless PowerPoint briefs that "boil the ocean" of facts. We tell you what you need to know. And then we practice it together!


You will receive training from 2 former FBI Agents, a former Secret Service Agent, a CPD Officer who is on a violence task force, and a Senior Church Attorney (all having church security leadership experience at various sized churches). Other experienced SecureChurch personnel will be there to ensure an optimal training day for you and your team. The training content is focused on these critical areas:

  • Spotting Active Assailants (Behavioral Analysis Training)
  • Global Threats to Churches (Threat Briefing)
  • Dealing with Human Performance Challenges Brought on By High-Stress Events
  • Firearms Safety Training for Church Security Teams
  • Legal Considerations Stemming From Active Violence Responses and Personal Liability
  • Sanctuary Protection Tactics (proactive, tactical, and responsive in nature)
  • The focus will be on providing Live Scenario-Based Training for Sanctuary Protection Tactics
  • We will incorporate multiple MILO Range Virtual Reality tactical training simulators to hone your skills
  • Lunch & Learn incorporating the Church Safety Tool Kit and MILO Range



This conference will kick off Friday evening at 6:30 pm and end at 9 pm, with over 2 hours of personalized training and skill building, employing multiple MILO Range Virtual Reality simulators that will place you inside a "real" attack scenario and train you to optimize your response. (Doors open at 6 pm)

Saturday will kick off at 8:00 am and end at 5 pm, with a threat briefing and a refresher course on Sanctuary Protection Tactics. That training will be solidified with over 2 hours of scenario-based training using role players to ensure the learning sticks. Then we will provide 2 more hours of personalized training on the MILO Range systems so you can refine those skills. This training is designed to teach you the vital team skills and tactics required to mitigate active violence threats. (Doors open at 7:30 am)
