A PASTOR IN ONE OF THE DAKOTA STATES RECENTLY TOLD US: "I have been in ministry for many years, and have been assaulted, threatened and have had to get law enforcement backup at times because of it...I also know other pastors who have faced incidents such as you have described, and one of them is no longer in ministry because of it." He went on to tell us that, "in a town our size, the thinking is, it won’t happen here."

If you have concerns or questions about the seminar, do not hesitate to call Jimmy Meeks at 817-437-9693.
QUESTION: IS THIS SEMINAR FOR CHURCH PEOPLE ONLY?
ANSWER: No! The principles and topics we address are applicable to anyone and everyone concerned with violence. Colonel Grossman's presentation is certainly beyond the scope of church-related violence only. The whole idea behind the Sheepdog philosophy is geared toward the individuals who are concerned about violence anywhere and everywhere, and the means and mentality necessary to serve as a protector of one's family, church, community, and nation. We do address the ever-growing problem of church-related violence, but recognize the fact that the Sheepdog is a Sheepdog everywhere he or she goes.
