Sheepdogs in training.
That’s what churches needs right now, according to a specialty ministry organization.
And as cute as are the four-footed kind, and as helpful, these “sheepdogs” are none other than security-minded church workers, officials and volunteers who want to stop evil at the door when it comes to church.
The Sheepdog Seminars for Churches organization says 440 people have died a violent death while on church or faith-based property in the United States since 1999.
“In addition, thousands of children have been sexually molested while on church or faith-based property (or at church-related events),” the organization reports.
