"...after the Fort Worth (Sheepdog) seminar, I made a list of everything...that would help beef up the safety of our campus. I submitted it to the church board members (knowing we didn't have a budget for it). Lo and behold, someone made an anonymous donation of 5k to cover everything on the list and more. God is good! Thanks to the Sheepdog Seminar, our campus is much safer today! Thank you for everything you do." - Associate Pastor
"This was the best I have ever attended, and I have been to many, having served (as a police officer) for 28 years... The three of you guys were just incredible. On a personal level, each presenter made me more proud of my profession than I have ever been and I am certain that the active duty police officers in attendance felt the much the same. Meanwhile, the method in which the information was delivered was a form of artwork and truly amazing." - Cincinnati Sheepdog Seminar Attendee
"Never in such a short time have I been moved to tears, laughed so hard, and prayed so fervently as I did today." (Cincinnati Seminar Attendee)

We commend Pastor Brady Boyd of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO for his recent comments about security in churches: “I love the people that I pastor, I want to protect them." (read article)
"Our places of worship and their congregations are especially vulnerable to be targeted by these horrific acts."
- Katrina Berger (February 8, 2016)
The quote to the right is from a Homeland Security Special Agent, documented by television station NBC5, Dallas.
THIS THREAT IS R-E-A-L. We have now documented over 622 violent deaths on church and faith based property since 1999 (a man was shot to death at a church in Texas this past Sunday). In addition, thousands of sex crimes have occurred on church and faith-based property. We beg you, we plead with you - in tears - for the sake of your precious flock, do something before the enemy strikes your people. Do not fall prey to the mentality of the people in Amos's day, who said: "Nothing bad will happen to us." (Amos 9:10)

FLORIDA PASTOR WHO ATTENDED SHEEPDOG SEMINAR SAYS: "...you opened up my eyes...we are not equipped to handle situations that we could find ourselves in. Thank you for your training and your information and showing us and reminding me as a pastor I am the Shepherd of the flock and I am the one who is to keep it safe the best that I can, thank you..."
"Some of us...had been trying for three years to convince our Pastor to let us start a safety team at our church... Thanks to you and Carl, his eyes are wide open now. We've already started putting together our team." (Seminar Attendee)
