With the increasing prevalence of church and school shootings, Covenant Defense is passionate about helping people know how to prepare and respond to these events. Covenant Defense exists to inspire believers to take their role in society as ambassadors for Christ impacting our culture with God’s healing presence while defending against disruptive threats.

On June 16th Covenant Defense is hosting an event which is being called the Protectors of the Covenant conference. This event will be moderated by Good News Media general manager Brian Harcey and will feature Dr. Steven Bucci as the keynote speaker. Dr. Bucci is the former top-military aid to the US secretary of defense, and the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Homeland Defense. Dr Bucci is also a committed follower of Christ who wants to equip people wit knowledge and skills to take our stand for God’s Kingdom on earth.

Dr Bucci will be leading a discussion about why this is such a crucial time for believers to be engaged along with giving practical recommendations on what we should be doing in our churches and schools. There will be a significant amount of time allotted for group discussion and a question and answer session with the Covenant Defense team.

Self Defense Training - Weekly Classes & Seminars

Instead of offering a regular weekly class option we are inviting you to get some of your friends together that want training and let us know how we can customize a class focused on your particular needs. Our training offers a combination of awareness and surveillance, Krav Maga, security concepts, CQB, and defensive firearm skills.

Public Speaking

We welcome opportunities to share our passion about what we do and why do it.   We understand that we are somewhat unique in our mission and often the best way to get engaged with us is an interactive discussion.  We have enjoyed invitations to present to churches, schools, and organizations and are happy to fit our presentation to your specific needs and interests.  Subjects we often speak on include threats facing the United States, the role of the Church in our current times, basic awareness and self defense, faith based preparedness, and God's design for Covenant relationship with us.

Security Consulting for Your Church or Business

We offer security consulting customized for your organization.  This is provided by Dr. Steven Bucci and Colby Taylor working together to provide an assessment, a plan and implementation of suggested training.

Law Enforcement Training

We are excited to partner with our law enforcement community in providing training dealing with topics such as restrain and control techniques, edged weapons, Krav Maga, defensive tactics, CQB, and advanced firearms training.

Firearms Safety

We have developed our firearms training curriculum to provide skills in the areas that are most needed in self defense situations.  We utilize professional grade airsoft guns in much of our training to create the most realistic and safe environment.  We feel many of the most important skills needed when using a firearm as a defensive tool involve understanding when it is the appropriate tool, weapon retention, proper gear selection, being proficient with movement and blending of martial skills with firearm useage.

Covenant Defense Community ( CDCN )

This is where you get ongoing support for the skills, the mindset and the community that assists you in staying engaged in the culture we are creating with Covenant Defense.

The curriculum for these sessions has been developed based on my training experiences which include the following:

  • Israeli Krav Maga training
  • Israeli Counter-terrorism training
  • Israeli and US executive protection training
  • Security training dealing with threatening individuals
