As reported by WAAY 31, a retired green beret in the Huntsville area is using his expertise to help Alabama churches come up with plans in the event of an active shooter situation.
Retired Army Special Forces officer and DEA agent Noell Bishop, in the aftermath of shooters killing 27 people in two church shootings in Nashville, Tennessee, and Sutherland Springs, Texas, this past year alone, is leading a team to train worshippers to defend their own churches.
“You have to have the plan together,” Bishop told WAAY. “You have to have the trained individuals to implement that plan. If you have both, then you are far above the power curve. And you can save lives that way.”
The highly trained, highly experienced Bishop considers this his ministry.
“I think that this is what God wants me to do: helping people and churches and businesses be safe,” he said.
