A Biblical Approach

How is a church to prevent and respond to the various safety and security concerns of this age? The Arizona Church Security Network follows a two-pronged approach found within the Scriptures.

"And we prayed to our God and set a guard as a protection against them day and night." Nehemiah 4:9


Our Mission

The Arizona Church Security Network serves the churches of Arizona by providing training resources, threat information, security news, and opportunities to network, among church security teams.
