CCI will hold a Field Security Seminar (FSS) on November 8-11, 2024. The training location will be in Union Mills, NC at the Center for Intercultural Training (CIT).


he FSS is a field-oriented training for faith-based, international workers operating in higher risk environments. Participants will learn about managing surveillance, maintaining situational and environmental awareness, surviving violent encounters and coordinated attacks, and landmines and IEDs. In addition, participants will learn to manage interrogations, survive hostage events, leadership in emergencies, how to manage carjacking events, and learn the essentials of vehicle security (convoys; checkpoints; ambushes). A discussion of terrorism as it relates to faith-based workers is included.

The FSS is presented by experienced global security professionals who are mature believers. The seminar begins with and is infused with a theology of risk.

The tuition for the FSS is $850 per student. This fee includes refreshments and course materials but excludes lodging and meals. Participants from the same organization may take a $45 discount (all may take discount).
