Carl Chinn church security expert and founder of the faith-based security network presents on his experience being taken hostage at Focus on the family and the active shooter at New Life Church.
Chinn was introduced to the need for security while serving as building engineer for Focus on the Family, a Colorado ministry founded (and led at the time) by Dr. James Dobson. Like others in faith-based management, Chinn had dismissed the subject of emergency readiness and security through much of his career, considering it an inconvenient distraction of debatable importance. After all, isn’t that what 911 is for? Experiences changed his views on the subject. In 1996 Carl Chinn was a responder in a standoff with an angry gunman who took hostages at the Focus on the Family ministry. Following the attacker’s trial, Chinn began researching and writing about criminal incidents in North American ministries.
