"Great guys that know quite a bit when it comes to training with church Security. Their training really gets you thinking about the little bits that are known but often forgotten in a situation that can create a completely different outcome if not applied. Daniel and Neland are very involved and spend a lot of time with you during the training sessions to make sure you get a firm grasp of the material and training at hand to be able to defend yourself or diffuse a situation in and outside of a church setting. Can't wait to get some more training from them!" - Dylan
"They came to our church and gave the Security Team a timely education on the risks that we face and the remedies for difficult situations. It was well worth the time and effort to attend the seminar." - Pastor Johannas
"The CV Ministries team is top notch. They are professional, great to work with, and extremely knowledgeable. I can’t say enough about them and I highly recommend their services!" - Joe
"Very helpful seminar in the instruction and demonstration of church securities and de-escalation techniques." - Randy
"Thank you very much for coming to our church and area. I would recommend this seminar to females as well as males. You are allowed to pass on the physical participation of the extraction techniques and just listen and learn if needed due to physical limitations. The teaching on verbal de-escalation and Dr. David Stephens' teaching on mental health issues and treatments in the church was excellent in my opinion." - Lisa
My wife and i were very impressed with the knowledge and experience shared with our group. The information, as presented by Daniel and Neland, was easy to understand and apply to our ministry. - Paul C
Really enjoyed the seminar, it was very educational. The guys both have a great sense of humor which made it fun as well. - Christina
"(CV Ministries) does a great job with their instruction. The tactical training and class training are done very well" - Carl J

"Thank you Dan and Neland for coming to our church and teaching us very valuable information that will definitely help us increase our security. The training you gave along with the defensive tactics are things that every church could benefit from."
"Thank you again for the wonderful training session!! Techniques and suggestions were swirling through my brain all night long! I thought what you taught was what we can use at this point in time. I am looking forward to practicing so we can actually become proficient!"
"The training was very informative! They were so willing to answer questions and make their presentations very interesting! This should be a must do for anyone that deals with people, no matter in what position. I hope that in the future we can do another class with them. The time passed by so quickly. Never a dull moment, they kept things moving. Thank you and God bless you for all that you are doing!"
"I just wanted to thank you again for making the long trip to our little church in Illinois. I appreciated that you were able to customize the training to fit our budget and our immediate safety concerns. So many good changes in our safety plan will come out of this. Already I met with pastor to prioritize them. The 15+ people on our team are newly energized to pitch in and bring our safety program to a higher level. As I shared with them earlier, this training is portable and can be taken with them wherever they go in life. I am looking forward in the future to attend an event nearby with even more comprehensive training."
