Active Shooter Response Training For Places Of Worship
The first recorded active shooting at a church was on June 2nd, 1980, at the First Baptist Church in Dangerfield, Texas. The shooter killed five people and wounded another ten during that Sunday morning service. He did this because he was upset that the members of the church would not appear as character witnesses for him during his rape trial. While houses of worship are usually free of violence, there have been many other acts of violence on faith-based properties since this summer day.
An active shooter response plan for churches or other houses of worship is just as important as having a plan for a tornado or fire. Our online active shooter response course was developed for pastors, priests, staff, volunteers, and safety team members. We designed it so that all of the above have access to the same material, bringing everyone together cohesively. Safety teams or those in an administrative position also get access to additional locked lessons that will help with prevention or a more prepared response.
These Active Shooter Response Lessons are Designed for All Staff and volunteers:
- Introduction to the Online ASR Course
- The History of Active Shooter Events
- How Long do Active Shooter Incidents Last?
- The Importance of a Proactive Plan.
- The Active Shooter Event Response Plan

Defender School showed me how I can de-escalate a situation and also how to respond in an active killer situation. The information was very informative on how to help myself and others work in these situations to keep ourselves as safe as possible.
Completing the Responding to an Active Killer Event course has made me feel more prepared for an event that I pray I never encounter. It offered tactics that are much more that just common sense.
The Fundamentals of De-Escalation course provided excellent communication skills that will be beneficial in many situations, not just life threatening events.
Thank you for making this course available.
This class has really opened my eyes to how much I did not know about an active shooter event. Barret taught me how to protect myself, help others and potentially eliminate the threat. His teaching is informative, clear and factual. I especially appreciate that he gives many real life examples to support the facts. In my opinion, this is a class that everyone should consider taking because we all need this information.
Barrett Kendrick’s Defender School is a “must view” for people living in modern America. He emphasizes the necessity of being prepared for the worst to happen and gives very practical and reasoned advice on how to respond.
As someone who is concerned for the safety of a large number of people, I think it is a necessity, especially for those in church and school classrooms. It’s necessary to be as prepared as possible. This course will help.
Carrie Casatta was the best presenter!!! She made the program!
