Concilium regional and program directors apply their expertise to manage Concilium services domestic and abroad.

These men and women hail from backgrounds that are as rich and diverse as the multiple countries and continents from where they come from or currently live.


Concilium security trainers draw their expertise from multiple professions including state and federal law enforcement, special operations, intelligence agencies, and decades of experience in security management from different Christian mission organizations and aid agencies.

For security reasons, Concilium intentionally obscures the identity of some directors and security trainers for their safety and that of their families.
