“The specter of someone entering our churches determined to commit mass murder, once unthinkable, must now be considered,” said CBA Church Network Executive Director Vince Smith. Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner will brief church leaders on how to react to an active shooter situation, and other scenarios churches may now face. He will also address questions related to best practices, legalities of safety teams and similar issues.
All church staff, leaders, and lay-leaders are invited to the seminar, which will be held at First Baptist Church of McKinney in the Chapel on Thursday, November 30. A light lunch begins at 11:30 am. The 90-minute presentation will begin at noon. Please go to http://bit.ly/ChurchSafety to RSVP for this free event.
“We are all understandably anxious,” said Smith. “We want our church leaders to be able to respond to questions and concerns about safety from their congregations by saying church leaders have met with the Sheriff, and local law enforcement representatives, and are implementing their recommendations.
