The Sheepdog Seminar is coming to Omaha

Violence is a problem in our country – and in our world. The truth is, very few places are exempt from the possibility of being a target of a violent crime.
The Sheepdog Seminar is coming to Omaha.  I had opportunity to listen to Lt Col Dave Grossman speak at a National Leadership Conference. To simply describe it as inspiring, educational and full of critical information is an understatement.

The seminar is November 17th and 18th.  Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. and then Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Early registration ends October 15th, but will only go up a bit. I am inviting to attend or at least consider sharing the following with your friends on facebook or via email to help me promote this event and share the learning throughout our community.  Additionally, a donation will be made to a non-profit organization I oversee that equips, educates and empowers women.

Friends, there is a seminar November 17 and 18th at Brookside Church that you might want to attend.  With violence seemingly able to occur any place and any time, this seminar addresses how to be better prepared and able to respond to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Please help us spread the word!  Also attached to this email is a flyer. You can print it off and put it on your bulletins – at work, at school, at church, etc…
Here’s some additional information about the seminar if you have questions or receive any: 

At the Sheepdog Seminar we seek to awaken the protective instincts that reside in the hearts of all menand women. It is our firm conviction that violence will have its way unless those willing to be prepared and take action, intervene. We call them  “Sheepdogs” and those who refuse to acknowledge the reality of our world, “Sheep.”  Being a sheep isn’t a put-down, it’s an acknowledgement of their preference to simply be at peace and not worry about what they feel they can’t combat against.

Sheepdogs on the other hand, place great value on human life, and because they do, they take the necessary steps to prevent others from being victimized by violence. They are the protectors of their flock. They will do whatever is necessary when the Wolf comes after the flock. The “flock” may be their family members, friends, fellow church members or community.

Why they do what they do is not hard to explain: they are driven by the most powerful force in the all of the universe: LOVE.

AT THE SHEEPDOG SEMINAR, you will learn the steps that must be taken to decrease one’s chances of being victimized by violence.

  • YOU WILL LEARN about the escalation of violence and you will hear what you must start doing to protect your flock. In the media you have been told that there have been 12 to 13 “mass shootings” at houses of worship in the last few years. However, the truth is, over 600 people have died a violent death on church and faith-based property since 1999. And the means of death has not always been by gunfire: deaths have resulted from assaults, stabbings, and even vehicular homicide.
LT. COL. DAVE GROSSMAN (ret.) will present his well-known message The Bullet Proof Mind. This series has been given to military and law-enforcement personnel from coast to coast, and now – thanks to the Sheepdog Seminars – can be heard by the civilian community.
Colonel Grossman’s message will awaken you to the reality of what we face as a country, and what we – as concerned individuals – must start doing if we would thwart the growing tide of violence – and protect those we love. Every single time Colonel Grossman has delivered his message, he has been given a standing ovation. His message will deal with violence that occurs everywhere: malls, theaters, schools, and all public places (and one’s own home). 
The Sheepdog Seminar is for…
Parents whose children are in high school, or soon headed off to college. Bring these older children- their own senses will be heightened in matters of safety, thus helping them to become more aware of their surroundings.

Business Owners are constantly victimized by violent crime. The Sheepdog Seminar will assist them in discovering the tools needed to protect their employees.

Police Officers have attended the Sheepdog Seminar. It is not uncommon to see 80 officers or more in attendance. 2016 is starting off as a violent year for law-enforcement: 14 officers have been murdered in 2016 thus far as of March 31). Police officers are also given Certificates of Attendance, and in most states, granted continuing education credit for attending the Sheepdog Seminar. 

Educators Thousands of school personnel have heard Colonel Grossman’s message. He has presented to over 100 different colleges and universities worldwide, and has trained educators and law enforcement professionals, in the field of school safety, at the state and regional level, in all 50 states and over a dozen foreign nations. 

The list of people who would be benefited by attending the seminar is endless. If you are concerned about violence, and have a heart that is protective of others – this seminar is for you.
