The Tulsa Seminar has been canceled.
Left: Jimmy Meeks, Colonel Grossman will speak. Officer Greg Stevens (center) will also present. In May of 2015, Officer Greg Stevens took on two terrorists that had driven from Arizona to Texas - with intentions of committing mass murder at a convention center. Officer Stevens shot both of them, saving countless lives. For his heroics, he was awarded the Medal of Valor by President Obama for "preventing a deadly act of terrorism."
Tulsa Police Major Travis Yates (right) will also speak. He has been with Tulsa PD for over 26 years, and is a previous winner of the International Police Trainer of the Year Award by ILEETA. Major Yates’ presentation will help the attendee to learn what signs to look for from one who has intends to commit violence, including the indicators given off by those carrying weapons and the pre-attack indicators that accompany violent offenders.

Commonly Asked Questions

ANSWER: No! By no means. We do believe in the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution - but we believe in MUCH MORE than that. The thousands that have attended our meetings will tell you that.
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.
