Church Security Training

The greatest security achievement is the crime that wasn’t committed

The threat of violence in the church, school, and workplace is a very real and present danger. The number of deadly force incidents continues to rise year after year, yet many organizations remain ill-prepared with inadequate security measures in place.

AGAPE Tactical provides a variety of planning and training services to meet the safety needs of churches and any other organization. From assessments that identify and mitigate your vulnerabilities, to training the entire force continuum, we can prepare your people to protect against, or respond to, a critical incident.

Contact AGAPE Tactical for a customized assessment, training program, pricing, and scheduling at info@agapetactical.com.

FA Icon Security Vulnerability Assessment

AGAPE Tactical specializes in performing comprehensive, on-site security vulnerability assessments of property, procedures, and systems for faith-based organizations, schools, and businesses. The findings are presented orally with an accompanying executive PowerPoint presentation and will include customized security recommendations for areas such as access control, safety team response, children’s ministry, offering, fire and life safety, staff and volunteers, week day programs, and grounds and facilities. The presentation of findings and recommendations may be audio and/or video recorded for documentation and continued reference. You prioritize those recommendations for implementation and we then train your staff, security team, and other volunteers according to your priorities and budget requirements.

FA Icon Next Steps

This 4-hour training assists clients in organizing and recruiting a security team while using the Deter, Detect and Deny strategy to develop a security plan. Skills taught include: developing a multi-level security plan, threat identification and situational awareness, conflict resolution, and developing the Warrior Mindset as it applies to faith-based organizations. Security team members will begin to learn how to communicate and function as a team. They will learn verbal de-escalation skills and how to engage and address individuals in a variety of circumstances, such as domestic or child custody issues, disorderly subjects, acts of terrorism, etc. This class is a great recruiting tool and should be attended by executive staff, safety team and prospective team members, children's workers, greeters, ushers, parking lot volunteers, and all personnel participating in the safety of your organization. 

FA Icon Active Shooter Training

Active Shooter Response Training - This 2-hour training program is taught at your office, school, church, or other facility. Participants will be able to recognize the sound of gunfire (blank rounds) inside their facility and will learn skills to deal with an active shooter threat.  The skills include: how and where to run, how and with what to fight, and how and where to hide.

This is an interactive program where the participants will actually fight the active shooter.  The aggressor will be wearing a Red Man protective suit which will allow for the most realistic training available.  The program includes a one hour presentation with question and answer period and an hour spent practicing the skills which have been discussed.

FA Icon Non-Aggressive Subject Control Training


This empowering 4-hour class will enable students to learn how to turn their non-aggressive posture, and natural response to fear or surprise, into a weapon. “The flinch” (hands coming up to protect your head) is the body’s natural response to a threat, fear, or surprise. Students will learn how to use the flinch as a defensive tool, then convert it into an offensive weapon. This is not a fighting style, nor is it a martial art. The SPEAR SYSTEM™ is based on a genetic survival reflex and has been turned into a combative science.

The students will also learn a series of combative techniques that are perfectly paired for this system. The last hour of the class, instructors will suit up in a Red Man Suit (padded suit) and allow each student to put their new-found skills to the test under stress-inoculated conditions. This training benefits students who are empowered with the knowledge they can defend themselves. It benefits churches because it is non-aggressive in appearance and helps comply with public perception on use-of-force. This training is great for people of all ages, strengths, and abilities.

FA Icon Scenario-Based, Force-on-Force Training

This 8-hour, advanced training is designed for all members of your safety team and integrates the various skills learned in the other AGAPE trainings and applies them to real-life situations that can and have occurred. In addition to practicing tactical skills, scenario training gives participants the opportunity to employ critical thinking and decide which response on the force continuum is best suited for the situation. The student experience is enhanced by the use of safety gear and simunitions weapons (LEO training weapons) to maximize stress. This provides some of the most realistic training available. This training is conducted at your facility allowing your team to train in a familiar environment.

FA Icon Warrior Medicine Training

This is a practical first aid class teaching students how to provide first aid while waiting for EMS. An Introduction to treating gunshot wounds and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) is also presented. Students should expect to perform many skills during the course including assessment, treating penetrating chest injury, splinting a fracture, and using a tourniquet. Students who successfully complete the course and examination will receive an American Safety and Health Institute certification in Basic First Aid and CPR certification. Each student will also receive a personal trauma kit. 


FA Icon Advanced Firearms Training

Employing a firearm on your property requires advanced training and skill. This training equips your team with the same marksmanship and tactical skills taught to law enforcement and military operators.
