WASHINGTON, Jan. 15, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Security Executive Council is pleased to announce that they will be working with Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Valley, CA in presenting the National Church Security Summit held on January 28th, 2013
"Churches are not immune from some of the same risks faced by secular organizations -- violent attacks, theft, arson, burglaries, and fraud to name a few" says Mark Lex, Security Executive Council and lead emeritus faculty of the Council's faith-based security practice. "Recent tragic events within the church have once again raised awareness to all new levels in protecting our sanctuaries and people."
"This year's summit is a bit different in that attendees will learn the basics of security and then be given an on-going opportunity in building their own resilience plans by working with peers and experts in Faith-Based Organization Working Groups™" says Ty Richmond, Sr. Vice-President of Security at Sony Pictures and one of the event's key organizers. The keynote speaker for the event is Jeffrey Hawkins who is the Founder and former Principal of the Christian Security Network. Hawkins has consulted hundreds of churches on the topic of church security and risk resiliency and is often looked upon by print and broadcast media as an expert in this area. Hawkins has served as an Adjunct Professor and authored the book "Introduction to Security and Emergency Planning for Faith Based Organizations."
Event registration is $59 and will be held at Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Valley, CA from 8 to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, January 28th, 2013. Register at www.lasecuritysummit.com.
