I WILL DO WHAT I HAVE TO AND DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF MY ACTIONS LATER
They say time flies when you're having fun, it should also say times flies faster when you're old.
I think it's really sad that I have to worry about house break-ins, idjits at shopping centers, nuts at theaters, etc etc. I think it's really sad that, now in my 60s, all this junk has found its way to my quiet little corner of life, and I now have to learn how to use a gun for more than the fun of it.That's really sad you have to resort to that with your congregation.

Thank you, Wag!! I'll do that.
(I'm driving into Albuquerque on Monday. I'm slated to be there until Sep 30. Maybe we can find a cup of coffee in there somewhere.)
So take "church" out of the picture and substitute any event or gathering. Company picnic in the park .... political rally .... public auction .... car show ....
Anywhere there would be a small crowd (40-100 people) and your armed responders are at various separated locarions, and suddenly up pops a black hat situation that needs heavy-duty resolution.
With a group that is familiar with each other - such as a church congregation - you can instill some training in both the general population and the armed responders. That is the training I am asking about, so a situation suddenly gone sour doesn't get hugely worse for a lack of training.
I worked a Safety Team for a mega Church in Central Florida. This is what I suggest:
1. Recruit LEO's whenever possible.
2. Issue all members shirts with with Safety team printed on them
3. Ensure all members except LEO's are licensed for concealed carry.
4. Have a working relationship with local LEO's
5. Make sure the team is large enough to cover all the doors
6. Children should be the piority. Our team was established first for the children then expanded.
7. Non family individuals with backpacks should always invite inspection.
perverts and drunks will be your biggest concern.
