conference testimonials


ImageChuck and Marian,

The annual NOCCSM Conference in Colorado Springs was terriffic. The host church (New Life Church) personnel were accommodating and gracious. The facilites were very comfortable and the view of Pikes Peak was awesome! What a myriad of speakers! They were all informative and on point regarding church safety and security. This was exciting stuff! I brought back a number of highlights and pointers to share with my church security team and church staff. See you next year....for sure!

Thanks and God Bless!

I enjoyed the conference, and took away many ideas and other information to consider for my church. I wanted to share some thoughts for your consideration for future conferences.

Thank you for your time.

Carl and Chuck,

First and foremost, I want to Thank you and Chuck from the bottom of my heart for the great training at New Life this past week end. We learned a lot about where we are and where we are going. And actually had God reveal that we are doing pretty well as a Church Security Team.

There are other aspects that came out of this program that we are incorporating into out teams as early as the first of September.

Serving Him,

Just left the NOCSSM conference at New Life and wanted to thank you, Jeff and New Life for putting this event together. I learned many new areas of concern for our church and solutions.

Thank you,

I feel that the time and money spent to hear the experts speak was a wonderful investment. I agree that each speaker brought new information from his area of expertise. In particular I got very important insight into Greg Love’s analysis of the methods and profiles of the molesters. It frankly really creeped me out, but it’s the type of information you need to be more aware of the risks. It’s an area that I had never really thought very much about until that morning. Thank you as well for being so open and user friendly on the stage and mixing with the participants who come in at all levels of understanding.

Thank you for this invaluable time. At the risk of being repetitive I felt this was the most impactful conference I have ever had the privilege of attending.

In addition to learning some wise & prudent security information, I also received a lesson in practical, impactful, incomparable Christian forgiveness. I will never forget this time. Thank you so much.

If I can serve you at your next conference as an extra set of hands, detail capture or hiccup elimination, or any other way, no cost or obligation it would be my privilege.
