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.
