The Protector Culture Podcast with Jimmy Graham

Aug 2, 2020

In this episode Jimmy is joined by fellow Able Shepherd’s Skip Miller and Don Jones to provide an update with regards to the “Stand In The Gap” initiative.  Be on the lookout as the team is diligently at work preparing for a series of in person, large scale communication events culminating in 5 presentations, delivered at various locations in and around the South Metro Denver area, with a targeted goal of 200+ attendees for each session.


Fundamentally, “Stand In The Gap” consists of three Core components … what am I doing as an individual, what am I doing for my family, and what can me and my family do to support the team … as it relates to the following categories:

1.) Preparedness

2.) Capability

3.) Organization


Don Jones will be leading the charge with regards to Preparedness with a 14 part series dubbed the “Able Shepherd Preparedness Study Group”.  Zoom meetings will start on Sunday, August 2, 2020 from 9 to 10pm and will continue as a weekly recurring meeting until Sunday, November 1, 2020.  Plan is  to record the Zoom meetings and post them in an online shared folder in case folks are unable to attend.  List of topics to include:
