How do you respond to each of these circumstances?

Being proactive is what will keep you safe, and you need to know how to be proactive. This course will teach you how to handle stuff like this to determine:

Hi, I'm Simon Osamoh, A Church Safety Expert

I'm the founder of Worship Security Academy, a Christian, British American with over a decade of experience supporting churches on how to stay safe.  

I'm former Head of Counterterrorism at Mall of America, Minnesota and spent 14 years as a Detective in England working serious and organized crime.

The Lord called me into security ministry around a decade ago. I was on my way back presenting at a sports conference to the heads of the NHL, NFL, NBA in Disney World, when a police department asked me to speak at a church on security.

I learned two things that day, first the Lord called me to help His churches and second there was a real need for biblically based security training.

Since that day I’ve helped hundreds of churches across America and written two books on the subject Securing Church Operations and Church Safety Responding to Suspicious Behavior.

I’ll personally teach you the church safety 101 class!
