about disciple dogs
"My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand." - Jesus
Jesus often spoke of a shepherd and sheep as a metaphor for the relationship between God and us.
In our culture we can't fully appreciate the bond between the shepherd and his sheep as it was in the culture and time of Jesus. But most of us can recognize and understand the relationship and love between a person and their dog.
Through the demonstration of dogs with varying stages of training and obedience, Disciple Dogs seeks to present a clear illustration of us and our relationship with the Master, Jesus.
These varied stages of obedience mirror the different places we as people find ourselves.
There are those of us who are on the run from God, wanting nothing to do with His love or His boundaries. Some of us acknowledge that He is there but still want to pursue our own inclinations and desires.
But there is a freedom found in obedience that answers the desires of our hearts.
The obedient dog knows that freedom and fulfillment are found at the feet of his Master.
Who would benefit from disciple dogs?
Designed to connect with audiences from the young to the old, our passion is to bring a message of hope and freedom to all people in whatever circumstances they find themselves in today. There is something everyone can learn from Disciple Dogs. We have brought our dogs and their message to school gyms, prison yards, church buildings, and corporate boardrooms. Though our hearts are aligned with our Master, Jesus, the messages of Disciple Dogs can be tailored to fit secular audiences as well. The freedom-giving lessons presented through Disciple Dogs are true regardless of your religion, race, or creed...
There is freedom to be found in obedience.
A special note regarding school events and other events for children
The principles of obedience and why boundaries and rules are necessary to have freedom is an especially applicable message for today's kids.
Disciple Dogs is a wonderfully unique way to communicate these truths to kids as the dogs capture their attention and help them see why we have to live inside of boundaries before we can have freedom. Boundaries, rules, and limitations are the foundation for our safety and well-being. There is no better illustration for kids than that of a well-trained dog!
We are passionate to bring this message to kids before they have to learn the lessons in the hardest ways. Disciple Dogs is committed to providing tailored presentations so as not to cause conflict in non-religious settings.
