What people are saying about Sentry One Consulting Group


  • I have known Paul Lake for some years and find him to be one of those in this business of church security who is in it more of a sense of personal commitment and obligation, not as an economic opportunity. His heart is in the right place and his credentials are in order for me to trust him enough to say so in writing.

  • As the former Lead Pastor at GracePoint Church in Coppell, Texas, I completely recommend the training and knowledge of Paul Lake. He is an expert in “all things related to the safety of the church.” His knowledge and expertise if vast and that gave me a great peace of mind every single week.

  • “Paul’s primary passion is not church security – it is Jesus. And because of that he is concerned for the safety of HIS flock.”

Let’s not let the pain of this event go to waste.
