Working Together Towards a Better and Safer Tomorrow

The Coalition began in September 2015 with a meeting of 10 security leaders from 6 churches. We were simply trying to deal with the challenges of safety and security in our Churches. We started with very different perspectives and a willingness to work together and share what we had.


At the beginning of 2020 we are nearly 100 member organizations and more than 1000 security and safety team members have attended one of our meetings, trainings or events.

The Security Leaders Coalition continues to grow and has become a place where we learn from experts, share lessons learned, and encourage each other to take the next step in making every organization a safer place to worship God.


"I love your coalition -- one of the best ran coalitions in the nation. Keep up the great work in the Detroit area"

Carl Chinn - President, Faith Based Security Network

"Keystone church is med-sized, with about 300 regular attenders. Like most churches, we simply cannot pay for costly, for-profit church security training. The SLC enables our church to get leading-edge education and training as well as invaluable best practices and benchmarking."

Ed Krause, Keystone Church
