Church Security Training

There have been over 950 deadly force encounters in churches within the last fifteen years. In the last decade, there have been twice as many deaths on religious property than there have been in school shootings. Heartbreaking, but recent examples of the importance for church security is the Texas Church massacre in November of 2017 and the Charleston, SC church shooting in June of 2015. Major pastoral blogs, and even state law and tax agencies highly recommend even a basic level of security for churches. While it is saddening and unsettling that church security is growing in relevance and need, Apex is equipped to handle all your security needs. We have a staff of highly trained and experiences professionals who are trained in security procedures, weapons training, self-defense, and security consulting. The wonderful thing about our church security training, is that churches can choose all services listed to fit their budget, needs, and concerns.

We are a faith-based company who feels there is no greater calling than this. To inquire more or to meet with one of our consultants for free, please email us at or call us at 336-529-4019 (please leave a voicemail if no one is available).
