Sheepdog-Iconography-LargeWhat is Sheepdog Development?

To put it simply, it is our mission to train and equip churches, families, and individuals to be safe, providing access to the tools and mindset and training necessary.

We do this by offering seminars, training sessions, and consulting services as necessary. We live in a complex and dangerous world, and it is our hope that we can help churches and families sort through the issues and decide on a course that is right for them, so that they can be safe.

What Resources Are Available?

On this website, it is our hope that you find resources and information that will help you in your endeavors. We also provide links to our seminars and training sessions, and access to a forum where ideas and information can be shared and discussed. In the Sheepdog News section, we will be posting news stories about sheepdogs and wolves, as well as posting opinions from Bryan’s blog.

Sheepdog Development was founded from the passion of Bryan Donihue. With a heart for the safety of families and individuals, and a calling to help keep his local church safe, Bryan prayerfully struck out and established Sheepdog Development as a resource for churches and families.
