Go Strapped Firearms Training has been training church members and church safety/security teams specifically for over 5 years. All of our instructors are State of Texas Certified License to Carry a Handgun Instructors.
The Lead Instructor and owner, Bryan Proctor, is also a certified TCOLE Instructor (Law Enforcement), State of Texas Certified School Safety Certification Instructor (Armed Teacher), among other certifications.
Church/ Workplace Security
Due to the large increase in requests for this type of training, we have created a system of certification training specifically for churches. Our 4 phased system will take a church from the beginning phases of creating a safety team, to having an official security survey, to different skill level of certifications for team members.
A CHURCH SAFETY TEAM IS NOT JUST A BUNCH OF ARMED MEMBERS
A SUCCESSFUL Church Safety Team manages all aspects of safety. Team members accomplish all kinds of tasks from checking fire-doors, cleaning dangerous spills, walking people to cars, directing traffic, ushering duties, escorting tithings, watches for suspicious behaviors, and handles minor to major disturbances. A Church may allow members on the team to be armed for defensive purposes. Having a Safety Team without some armed members is the equivalent of having fire sprinklers with no water.
We highly encourage a higher level of certification and training for armed members. Below is a flyer describing the certification and training we offer.

According to the FBI report released in 2014, workplaces (45.6%) and churches (3.8%) made up for 48% of all active shootings in the United States between 2000 and 2013. An "Active Shooting" is defined only if 3 or more people die in the incident by gunfire.
Of these 160 incidents, over 40% (largest category) ended after CITIZENS ended the shootings. In these cases, the casualties were much less than others. Law enforcement only ended 28% of the 160 incidents.
