    12/05/2020 Duración: 17min

    If someone at your church has a heart attack, a stroke, or a seizure, or is choking, would you know what to do and how to do it? Find out what to do and get the needed training and certification.

  • CSRC205: Proactive Response

    CSRC205: Proactive Response

    05/05/2020 Duración: 12min

    “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We should do what we can to prevent injuries and illnesses in our churches.

  • CSRC204: Peaceable Assembly

    CSRC204: Peaceable Assembly

    28/04/2020 Duración: 18min

    We live in a conflicted world. There will be disagreements and complaints. If protesters show up at your church, this will be an opportunity to respond peacefully. Our respectful response will be a positive witness to the community.

  • CSRC203: Calming Troubled Waters

    CSRC203: Calming Troubled Waters

    21/04/2020 Duración: 19min

    When tensions are escalating, we want to keep them from exploding into violence. We can use verbal de-escalation to bring the situation back from the brink without using physical force.

  • CSRC202: Assessing Threats

    CSRC202: Assessing Threats

    14/04/2020 Duración: 17min

    Assessing possible threats of violence against the church is a safety & security tool churches should use. Knowing what threats we face not only enables us to prevent violence or prepare for it; it also provides us the opportunity for intervention.

  • CSRC201: Indications

    CSRC201: Indications

    07/04/2020 Duración: 15min

    Calming a situation at the start, before it becomes disruptive, is much easier and safer than trying to fight a heated battle. Like smelling smoke or seeing a small flicker, we need to see indications that a situation is brewing and turn down the heat before it boils over.

  • CSRC200: Tectonic Terror

    CSRC200: Tectonic Terror

    31/03/2020 Duración: 17min

    Tectonic disasters can be extremely terrifying events. It is as though the earth itself has turned against you, moving the ground out from under you and throwing hot rocks, ash, and molten lava at you. Churches are not exempt from their threats.

  • CSRC199: Human Error

    CSRC199: Human Error

    25/03/2020 Duración: 21min

    Disasters can be both natural and the result of human activity. Those in the latter category are largely preventable, and therefore regrettable. Some are more likely to impact our church because of its location. We need to be ready for those.

  • CSRC198: Special Coronavirus Episode

    CSRC198: Special Coronavirus Episode

    16/03/2020 Duración: 17min

    10/03/2020 Duración: 13min

    When dark clouds roll in and the sky rumbles, beware. There is danger ahead. Know what’s coming and be prepared.

  • CSRC196: It Aint Over til its Over

    CSRC196: It Ain't Over til it's Over

    03/03/2020 Duración: 14min

    While Winter lasts, we remain ready for the cold, snow, ice, and strong winds. Some parts of the country face rain, flooding, and tornadoes, with their own threats to the safety of the flock. It may be March, but it is still Winter. As Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”

  • CSRC195: On Hold

    CSRC195: On Hold

    25/02/2020 Duración: 15min

    This is not an everyday situation (at least not in most neighborhoods), but there may be times when someone must stop a person committing a crime, especially when lives are at stake. However, we must make a citizen’s arrest only when necessary, then do it the right way.

  • CSRC194: Managing Force

    CSRC194: Managing Force

    08/02/2020 Duración: 28min

    Management of the use of force in a Church Safety Ministry begins with training. This leads to practice with situation drills and individual practice of use-of-force skills and discernment exercises. Finally, Church Safety Ministry leadership exercises control over the use of force.

  • CSRC193: Legal Force

    CSRC193: Legal Force

    04/02/2020 Duración: 22min

    Not only do we have a moral obligation as Christians to act within the limits of the law, but there are criminal and civil liabilities for not doing so. Therefore, we need to know how the law applies to the use of any level of force before we need to decide how to use it.

  • CSRC192: How Forceful?

    CSRC192: How Forceful?

    03/02/2020 Duración: 23min

    In church safety and security, there are times we have to prevent a person from harming himself or herself and/or others, to cause someone to stop an unsafe action, or to keep a situation from getting out of hand. We are using some kind of force when we do this. This brings up the question of what kind of force do we use and at what level.

  • CSRC191: A Forceful Answer

    CSRC191: A Forceful Answer

    29/01/2020 Duración: 22min

    Attacks on churches in this nation have become more violent over the past two decades as mass killings in general have increased. Obviously, places of worship are not exempt from the dangers faced by society as a whole. The question for us is, “Will we be ready if deadly force visits our church?”
