Ben O'Neal

Making and Keeping Our Churches Safe
We will be discussing how to start a security program in your church. If you have one already, we'll look at how to improve your existing team. We will discuss behaviors and indicators and what types of responsibilities will be needed to effectively protect a church and their congregations. We will also discuss what Georgia law says about carrying weapons in church.
