Interview with Jason Hensley, Director of Safety for Shadow Mountain Community Church
Recently we sat down with our friend Jason Hensley. Jason is a wealth of knowledge regarding child protection and safety. He served 11 years as a senior/associate pastor, before becoming a law enforcement officer and SWAT Team operator. He now works as the Director of Safety for Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego California.
In the webcast Jason talks about the top three risks and liabilities to children’s ministry, how to best collaborate with the security team and what to do if you don’t have one, he also highlights some cost-effective safety resources, and shares his thoughts on his favorite non-profit organization “I Love You Guys.”
Jason is a great friend to KidCheck and a valued resource for reliable, actionable advice, and direction on ways to improve child safety.
