Security Conference 2019

Welcome to our Church Security Conference 2019. This years conference will be held on February 9th. In the event of snow or other bad weather on the 9th, we will hold the conference on the 23rd of February. 

Below is the schedule for this years conference. One change we have made to this years schedule is to offer sessions in both the sanctuary and a smaller class room setting for the morning sessions. This allows us to offer more topics for discussion and allows you to choose which session you are interested in to meet your security needs. 

Costs for this years conference is $25.00 per person. Groups of 5 or more will be $15.00 per person. 
Lunch will be available at an additional cost of $10.00. 

You may register and pay online using the links below. To help your registration process go smoothly, there are a couple of things you need to have ready before you register. First, you will need a credit/debit card to register and pay online. Second, to help us plan and be ready for each session, there will be a place on the registration form for you to let us know which of the morning sessions that you are interested in and plan to attend.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR GROUP REGISTRATIONS: If you are registering for a group of 2 or more, you will need to have the session choices information ready for each member of your group.  We do not need to know names, just the number of people in your group for each session. There are two choices, Sanctuary and Classroom.  See schedule below for session times and subjects.
