Church Security


We can help train your Church Safety/Security Team

Churches in Texas may now operate an armed church security team for the safety of their congregation however, you should never operate an armed church security team if you are unwilling to provide the proper oversight, training, and documentation of the program.

Guardian Training Agency developed classes to help train church security teams. These classes are designed to develop skills and teamwork  in challenging environments.
