Yes, we are living in troubled times and we Christian sheepdogs need
to sound the alarm joining together to defend the flock. Scripture tells us,
"There will be terrible times in the last days..."
2 Timothy 3
From my perspective, the last days are here. It's time for sheepdogs
to solidify and define our calling to serve the LORD. It is time to
renew our promise and commitment to serve CHRIST and the church
with all our hearts, minds and strength. We are sheepdogs, a shield
of protection serving at the foot of the cross to protect the flock for
as long as the LORD tarries in HIS return. May God grant us the
strength and wisdom to fulfill this calling.
Stay Smart. Stay Safe.
Waiting HIS Return,

“I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust."
Psalm 91:2 NKJV
THE SHEEPDOG CREED
As a Sheepdog, I am a companion to shepherds and a protector of the flock. My fundamental calling is to support and protect the Church; to aid pastors in watching over their congregations (Acts 20:28), to safeguard lives and property, to maintain order; and to be an instrument for Peace and Security so all people may gather in Jesus' name to pray, worship and study in a sanctuary of safety and security (Psalm. 5:11).
I will keep my life temperate and above reproach, maintaining self-control in the face of danger and temptation; I will be respectable and hospitable (1 Timothy 3:2); honoring others above myself and being constantly mindful of their welfare (Romans 12:10). I will be well-trained; technically and tactically proficient; disciplined, physically and mentally tough, ready to meet the challenges of my calling: executing justice and mercy for God.
To my congregation and pastor, I promise sustained, just and honorable support. I promise to be professional, courteous and kind. I promise to always be ready to respond to emergency situations and to engage threats to the Church.
To my LORD and MASTER, I promise to find my Peace and Strength in YOU Alone, to Study Frequently, Pray Continuously, Worship Constantly and Love YOU Eternally, for I am a Servant and Guardian of the Kingdom of GOD. (Ps. 28:7, 127:1)
WE ARE ALL PROTECTORS
In the Webster's Dictionary, the word "Protector" is defined as;
a): one that protects: GUARDIAN
b): a device used to prevent injury: GUARD

As people think of the word “protector”, they automatically think of the professionals like; Fire Fighters, Law Enforcement and EMS. This is most common. However, if you are responsible for the care of another person then YOU are a protector too! If you are in the category of being a protector you have a responsibility to prepare in advance.
