Covenant Church  |  Carrollton, Texas

We are excited about our upcoming national conference. I believe this will be among the best conferences we have had in our nine years of bringing you church security training that has value long after you leave.


A lot of Church Security Conferences are focused on reliving terrible incidents and healing in the aftermath. We believe that this is essential to those affected by these terrible tragedies.


This year's conference is laser focused on offering practical solutions and actions a church can take to both prevent and react to acts of violence.


Carl Chinn will tell of the New Life Church incident as a model of an Active Shooter in a church. You will also take back real solutions for such an event.


Armed Security Teams - Chuck Chadwick will discuss how your church can develop legal armed security teams to combat the active shooter scenario.


Anti-Active Shooter Tactics - We will also share actual armed anti-active shooter tactics for your team to practice. Search and Clear, etc.


De-escalation techniques - Randy Dickson will teach on the key to "Communicating When it Counts" to aid in prevention of a violent incident.


Tools of the trade - Church Chadwick will lead a lively discussion of the various "Tools of the trade" he has found useful in his thirty plus years of private security. Yes, Guns are included.


Gunshot Wound Trauma Medical - David Wood will give us the basics in treating victims of gunshots. A few emergency procedures could save a life when minutes count.


Child Safety - Probably among the top issue of church concern. You will hear about a great prevention solution from Greg Love of MinistrySafe.


International Mission Threats - We live in a dangerous world, especially outside the U.S. We are bringing in the nation's authority in missions security from California, Bob Klamser.


The Calling - Jimmy Meeks will speak on the scriptural validity of the need for Church Security and the calling he has felt to the church security ministry.  


Policies and Procedures - Each Church will be provided a sample Church Security Policies and Procedures to use and customize for their own needs AND a one year membership (a $120 Value) to NOCSSM.


We can't wait to see you in October. Please make your reservations quickly as room is limited.

RANDY DICKSON: Critical Interaction Associates - Communicating when it counts....

In one of his signature presentations, Randy takes a humorous yet critical look at the emotional, psychological and physiological aspects of interpersonal crisis communications. Communicating When it Counts is laced with dozens of "keepers" participants may use to navigate the course of a conversation that is going south in a hurry; to mitigate the negative impact of conflict; to recognize the subtle indicators that the atmosphere of the interaction is changing; and to turn no-win situations into mutually beneficial opportunities. Randy neatly folds all of this insight into a self-deprecating story of mistaken identity that occurred years ago. 


A former law enforcement officer and EMT, Randy Dickson has served as a responder and trainer in the areas of critical incident response and management and crisis communications for over twenty years. As a trainer and consultant, Randy has provided services to local, state, and national agencies, organizations and associations, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the National Sheriff's Association, the International Association of Chiefs of Police and others.


As a responder, Randy served for over eight years as a member of the Austin (TX) Police Department's Crisis Response Team. He has also worked with national organizations in the response to disasters and catastrophic incidents, including the bombing or the Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City and the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11.


Randy is the co-author of the book, Officer-Involved Shootings and Use of Force: Practical Investigative Techniques, Second Edition, and has assisted in the development of training curricula and operational guidelines for local, state and national agencies associations. He is a graduate of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress. Randy is a licensed instructor with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TCLEOSE) and an approved or certified instructor with a number of national organizations.


Randy, his wife, and 20-year-old son reside in Travis County, Texas.

Our Founding
1 Chronicles 9:21-24
21 And later Zechariah son of Meshelemiah had been responsible for guarding the entrance of the tabernacle.   


22 In all, there were 212 gatekeepers in those days, and they were listed by genealogies in their villages. David and Samuel the seer had appointed their ancestors because they were reliable men.  
23 These gatekeepers and their descendants, by their divisions, were responsible for guarding the entrance to the house of the LORD, the house that was formerly a tent.  
24 The gatekeepers were stationed on all four sides-east, west, north, and south.
