I have been in Federal law enforcement for 23 years and have been blessed to serve on an enhanced SWAT team while also leading Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence teams. I attended the March 2015 LionHeart conference in Tennessee, bringing a CIA colleague with me who specializes in protection and security issues. By the end of the second day, we were in complete agreement that this was outstanding training that we could both validate against the tactics and strategies that we have been taught in our years of service. We walked away with a carefully and expertly crafted template for keeping our church safe, which resonated with our heart to keep ministry first (to our team and with our brothers and sisters in Christ). We were able to seamlessly overlay into our ministry tested tactical strategies (provided by LionHeart’s training team) that we know work, based on our real world and collective professional experiences."
