DTF 2021- Using Table Top Exercises With Your Team
Tabletop exercises increase critical thinking among team members under "near-real" conditions. They can help uncover team issues before they happen for real and can help establish clear preparedness objectives, and should hep strengthen crisis preparedness. Tabletop training can increase team confidence and serves to help inoculate team members from stressful situations.

Author of, “Wise as Serpents Gentle as Doves, Insight, Ideas, and Discussion About How to Start or Improve a Church Security Team (Amazon 2018). Served as State Security Officer (SSO) for Christian Emergency Network (CEN) 2017, Committee Chair of “Coalition Development” for the Faith Based Security Network (FBSN) 2018-2019 and has served AZCSN as the Metro Phoenix Director 2018 to present. Currently serving as the Volunteer Security/EMS Team Coordinator at Church For The Nations (CFTN) – Phoenix, Global 365, and David Herzog Ministries. I helped organize and coordinated security teams for Pastor David Herzog at the Awaken 2020 event at Sun Devil Stadium. I also co-ordinate security for Sean Feucht of Bethel, and his Let Us Pray events in Arizona and serve on the Phoenix Police Chief’s Faith Based Advisory Board.
My church security experience includes working with small, medium, and large churches. I am aware of the challenges each church faces recruiting, retaining, training, and operating a security team. AZCSN and its mission is important to me, and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Network because there was a time when I was looking for team coordination information and training for my team and couldn’t find much help.
