The Protectors

Faith Based Anti-Bullying Program

The Protectors is the only faith-based organization of its kind helping Christian schools and other faith-based organizations such as youth groups, Boy Scouts and  AWANA reduce bullying through its unique and effective program. This comprehensive program provides profound character development through its “Courage Training” module that bolsters spiritual growth and strength. Increase faith, respect, character and courage throughout your organization today.

The Protectors offer several options which are tailored to your specific needs:

Live Presentations:

Faculty training, student assemblies, and Parent/Community Night. Together, they create a comprehensive solution to bullying, which according to the Department of Health and Human Services is the only kind that works.

School-Wide Curriculum:

This 7-lesson, Bible-based curriculum moves your student body toward one goal: creating justice, mercy and hope by diminishing bullying through changing the culture of your school, helping all four characters in the “Theater of Bullying” change their role–especially Bystanders who become courageous “Alongside Standers.”

Protectors Freedom Council:

Most anti-bullying programs fail because they do not stay alive and active. Not anymore. This special curriculum is designed
for student leaders, faculty and even select clergy connected to your organization who “get” The Protectors mission and want to keep it going at your school. Think of the PFC as your varsity squad, allies in your battle against bullying.

Protectors Freedom From Bullying Newsletter:

Each month your school receives ongoing tips, training and information about creating freedom from bullying and in the process, courage, character and leadership for life.

Studies show that private religious schools have about the same amount of bullying as public schools. During this school-changing live presentation, Paul Coughlin helps all the characters in the “Theater of Bullying” to understand and change their role: Bully, Bystander, Target, and Authority. With humor as well as soul-stirring power, conviction and inspiration, Paul Coughlin gives students, teachers, and parents what they need to know to combat bullying and spread God’s love, mercy and justice, helping to make your school safer, spur creativity and test scores, and grow courage, faith and love.

Help your teachers, administrators and students to become Protectors—heroes who defend human dignity, which is a gift from God. It’s time for people of faith to stand up through courage, strength and love (I Cor. 16:14), and help “justice to roll on like a river and righteousness like a never-failing stream” (Amos 5:24).


The Protectors is committed to changing the Theater of Bullying. That’s why we have people across the world who pray not just for Targets of serial bullying and their families, but also for children who bully and for Bystanders who want to be Alongside Standers.
