People trained across Europe

We take a lot of things for granted: the safety of our buildings, entrances […] Many of our pastors and elders in the churches are not aware that there could be [these kinds of] threats […] I was really impressed by the insights into these areas.

Jeroen Tuinstra, Seventh Day Adventist Church, Belgium
It was a very good training. I picked up a lot of good points […] Security is the responsibility of the people behind the place of worship, and we should take this as a top priority
Michèle Buitenrust Hettema, ISKCON Netherlands
