We are grateful to the Southern Baptist Life magazine for its recent story about our ministry. Click here to read the story.

As a career law enforcement officer ... I believe the Sheepdog analogy is 100% correct... as a member of my church, I believe it’s my responsibility to protect my family as well as my church family from anyone who is intent on inflicting death, trauma, or terroristic acts at my church or my community.
Thankfully my church has a great group of sheepdogs.

"Thank you for coming to Bryant, AR to speak at our church. Our staff was "blown away" with what you presented, your passion for what you do, and your heart for Jesus Christ. We all plan to be at the Hot Springs meeting at Crossgate Church. Do not get discouraged. If Jesus called you here, HE will take care of the details. In the love of Jesus!!!!" (Dustin Holley)

"It was an awesome experience. I was either inspired or being convicted at any given moment, and I felt that I had my money’s worth by noon the first day (Mike) 

I’ve been a certified law enforcement officer for over 25 years now and short of the SWAT training I went through with Delta Force at Ft. Bragg, this has been by far some of the best training I’ve had the pleasure of attending.

"The Seminar was more then I expected. Lot's of great material and very intense. I have been talking to everyone about the experience and can't quit thinking about it.  I am already taking steps to apply the Sheepdog Ministry at my church". (David)

"Thank you! All the speakers were great.. All had very useful and important information. Carl Chinn cleared up many things about the New Life Church shooting...Col Grossman is the legend. His information on past and future events are critical for any individual or organization (John)

 


“Thank you for putting together this seminar as it was absolutely fantastic!  Honestly, "Thanks" just doesn't seem to truly tell you how much I appreciate your efforts. I learned a lot and will be implementing much of what I learned into my security team and personal life." (Steve)

"I am a...68-year old grandmother of six...The seminar, the CDs, and the printed material are like gold, and I thank you for them." (Patricia)

"I had a wonderful experience at your seminar; just incredible.  I’ll be back next year and hopefully so will the rest of our team." (Steven)

It was a wealth of information that will help us do the work that God has called us to do in keeping His people safe.
— Steve

"I know you're going to get a 1000 of these so I'll keep it short.  Your training was amazing, not just for strategic, but for the mind!  Very faith-based.  I've been on a natural high for 3 days!  There is a special place in heaven for you, Carl and Col Grossman.  I would be proud to endorse your seminars anytime."  (Tom - retired police officer)

"I want to thank you for the awesome safety seminar Friday and Saturday. I and everyone on our church's security team all feel like we just got a ton of knowledge from the seminar. The guys/dogs are excited and already talking how we can apply some of that knowledge to improve the job that we do to protect our church..." 
(Mark)

"My personal favorite part of the entire experience was the scripture and reinforcement of what we are doing and why.  To me that was even more helpful than the great information about how to be ready from a physical perspective.  A man needs to know he serves a great cause, Sheepdogs serve the Lord, their church body, and each other, but we also need to make sure we continue serving our wives, our children, and our neighbors.  You made that point very clear, and backed everything up with scripture.  That was outstanding."(David) 

"...thank you for the amazing seminar..." (Brice)

"I was at the seminar in Denver along with several of my brothers, and we all thought it was great, and had a good time!  Thanks for putting it on and look forward to going next year as well, and hopefully we'll bring a few more from our group along." (Scott)

"Wow, my head is still reeling from the Sheepdog Seminar in Weatherford, Texas! I was blown away by the amount of information given to us and I took notes like crazy because I didn't want to forget any of it! I really want to commend all of the speakers who each passionately gave their heart and soul to help better educate us. I was moved by the stories, shocked by the statistics/evidence, and inspired to prevent evil from walking in! I want to THANK YOU for sacrificing your time to spend it with us!!! I enjoyed every minute of it, my brain hurts, but in a good way!...everything was perfect! Loved it! Can't wait for more!" (Attendee)

"...it was an absolute pleasure to hear you and Lt. Col. Grossman and all the others speak.  I left the conference with my spirit renewed and have never felt a more clear definitive yes from God that I heard him correctly when he called me to a career in law enforcement." - Police Officer

"I thought the seminar was absolutely tremendous with both the presentation and information.  Would recommend it for anyone with any desire for security issues for schools, churches, homes and individuals.  Am looking forward to getting my audio of both days to go back over several details that I want to hear again.  Lt Col. Dave Grossman knows his stuff and his memory of scripture made it even more interesting since I am a Christian." (Jerry - retired teacher, coach, and Dallas Cowboys Football Player under Tom Landry)

"Thank you very much for all your time and effort in putting this seminar together!  The nominal admission fee was very well worth all that I learned and for all the contacts and connections made during the seminar.  Plus all the resources that were available such as the books I purchased and the brochures I picked up.  I was so pumped up after leaving on Saturday afternoon that when I got home that evening I raved to my family until about midnight!" (Kevin)

"Thank you! All the speakers were great.. All had very useful and important information. Carl Chinn cleared up many things about the New Life Church shooting...Col Grossman is the legend. His information on past and future events are critical for any individual or organization. Please tell the Col thank from his Christian Sheepdogs brothers...Jimmy Meeks thank you for your passion."  (John)

"It was a wealth of information that will help us do the work that God has called us to do in keeping His people safe." (Steve)

"I sincerely thank you for your heart and obedience to God's will in your life.  Thank you for putting together this seminar as it was absolutely fantastic!  Honestly, "Thanks" just doesn't seem to truly tell you how much I appreciate your efforts. I learned a lot and will be implementing much of what I learned into my security team and personal life." (Steve)

"The seminar provided a realistic insight to the dangers churches face today. Every church leader needs this information so they can make informed decisions regarding their own security plans. You hit the nail on the head when you spoke about churches that rely on their faith that God will protect their flock instead of implementing the services of a Shepard, or “Sheepdog.” I truly hope they will find enlightenment from the lessons learned by others, like the ones presented at your seminar. I plan to use the information I have gained to supplement my Security Assessment Plans from this point forward." - Police Officer

"I LOVED the training!  I was thanking my sheriff this morning for being able to attend the Sheepdog training.  It was high quality and contained the vital information I need in order to establish Safety Teams in our area churches.  Thank you so much for sharing your training and personal experiences.  Honestly, I can’t think of one negative comment about this seminar." (Doug - Virginia Police Officer)
