Help arrived from all corners to transform Sutherland Springs church

Filling in for Pastor Frank Pomeroy is Pastor Mark Collins, who formerly served for 12 years as the pastor at the church that endured Sunday’s loss of 26 precious lives.

“It was the most emotional, the most meaningful, project I’ve ever done,” she said. “If I never paint another project in my life I’ll be fulfilled.”
“We’ve had a lot of people tell us it looks the way they imagine heaven looks like,” Pastor Collins said.

Please Help Support Our Church Security Team in Sutherland Springs, TX

Oath Keepers Security Volunteers on Duty Outside First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas
We still have Oath Keepers volunteers on the ground in Sutherland Springs, TX, helping provide security for the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs as they recover and rebuild after the horrendous mass shooting on November 5. A secondary mission for our team is to offer free security assessments to South Texas churches, and to offer free training for their security teams (helping them form a team if they have none, or helping them train the team they have).

Our men have been on the ground for the past week, at the invitation of the church pastors, and have done a superb job in helping to preserve the privacy and security of the church and its members as they go through the heart wrenching grieving, memorial, and healing process. And we will be part of the long term solution to help prevent this from happening again, which will also help to defend our gun rights by denying the enemies of the Second Amendment the victims they need to push their agenda.

We still need volunteers, per our CALL TO ACTION.

If you can’t volunteer, please help support those who can. You can DONATE to help us continue this vital mission.  

Not everyone can attend these events, but we could use your help with the ongoing expenses. Our unpaid volunteers need to be reimbursed for gas money spent on travel and food, and we have also spent money on airfare and a rental car to bring in one of our key team leaders, retired Washington D.C. Metro police officer and Army Ranger veteran, Brian Krogmann, who flew in from Arizona.

We appreciate all who have supported our recent disaster relief efforts in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico, and we will do our best to not stretch our donors too thin. But the anti-gunners are doing all they can to use this tragedy, as well as the recent Las Vegas mass shooting, to further erode and destroy your right to bear arms. When the pastors of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs reached out to us and asked us for help, we didn’t hesitate because it was the right thing to do. And by stepping up when called, we will also be part of the long term solution of increased security for churches, not just in Texas, but all across the nation.  

Because of this operation, we can now speak with direct knowledge of what happened there in Sutherland Springs since we have seen the aftermath with our own eyes, and we have spoken directly with the church members and their pastors. We have also had the honor to meet and speak at length with the man who put a stop to the killing, Stephen Willeford. And all of that will make a real difference as we counsel and advise churches across the nation on what they must do to prevent the same thing from happening to them – they must have robust armed security that is prepared for active shooter attacks like this.   

We all know that until churches go from being soft targets to being hard targets, terrorists and madmen will take advantage of that softness to work their evil. Oath Keepers is playing a direct, key part in making that necessary change, across this nation. Please donate to support this effort.

First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas

First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas
Oath Keepers was requested by leaders of First Baptist Church to help with the tragedy. A small group of volunteer Oath Keepers are assessing the situation, assisting with security and beginning to formulate training plans to help church congregations protect themselves from this kind of attack in the future.

Some of our followers and members have asked what we are doing here and what we are guarding against. As expected, the media is out in full force. We are here to help ensure the victims’ families, congregation and the town are left to grieve in peace. We are here to help prevent a copy-cat incident. We are here to provide peace of mind that they are protected from any more acts of evil. We have been a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on for this small tightly knit community.

The First Baptist Church was cleaned up and painted as a memorial to twenty six members of the congregation. Each chair represents a church member and where they were sitting on Sunday, November 5th. The memorial was opened to families at 5 PM on Sunday, November 12th. The memorial is scheduled to be open all week.

When Oath Keepers participate in a mission like this one, they do so as volunteers.
If you can donate to help with travel expenses, etc, that would be greatly appreciated. We currently have Oath Keepers in Sutherland Springs, Texas from several states, including Arizona, Montana, and Florida.

Mourning in Sutherland Springs, Texas

First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs sadly has a lot of funerals occurring this week. Oath Keepers have been working with local law enforcement to keep a 24 hour presence of security at the church. There is no immediate threat we are guarding against, but we are here to help give peace of mind to the community that they are protected. During the night we keep guard at the church property, and assist in different tasks during the day.

Yesterday was the funeral of the pastor’s 14 year old daughter, Annabelle. Oath Keepers stood with law enforcement and the Baptist emergency response team for her procession.

First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs is now a memorial to 26 friends, neighbors, and family family members in the small town of Sutherland Springs.

When Oath Keepers participate in a mission like this one, they do so as volunteers. If you can donate to help with travel expenses, etc, that would be greatly appreciated. We currently have Oath Keepers in Sutherland Springs, Texas from several states, including Arizona, Montana, and Florida.

Call to Action: Church Security in Sutherland Springs, Texas

Pastor Frank Pomeroy and his wife, Sherri, took the podium Monday morning to respond to the mass shooting at their church in southeast Texas during the service on Sunday, Nov. 6. They lost their 14-year-old daughter that day.

On Wednesday, Nov. 8, Associate Pastor Kevin Cornelius from First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, TX and Pastor Mark Collins (who used to be pastor at the church) reached out to Oath Keepers and asked us to provide security for the church grounds, for the church service on Sunday, 11/12/2017, and to also provide security for some of the funerals for those killed in Sunday’s mass shooting.  In response, Oath Keepers has been on the ground at the church since Thursday, November 9 and we are already bringing in some of our most experienced police and military veterans.

Help us provide security for the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, TX and their community while they heal and recover from the horrendous mass shooting that took the lives of 26 people on Sunday, Nov. 5, and help us train church security teams in the area so they are better prepared to prevent and/or stop such acts of evil in the future.

Skilled Volunteers Needed
We need skilled, trained, and experienced police and military veteran volunteers to assist us in providing security for the church and for the community as they grieve and recover.
You can volunteer by emailing us at:  tx@oathkeepers.org.

You can also call:
Scott Dunn at 850-209-6348
Ivan Chiplinsky at 702-810-4066

If you cannot make it yourself, please donate to support those who can.   We need to pay for the travel expenses of bringing in our best men.   Please help support this mission:


Team leaders on the ground are:
1. Brian Krogmann (Army Ranger veteran and retired Washington D.C. Metro police officer who helped take down the Washington Navy Yard shooter in 2013).
2. Scott Dunn (Ranger School grad, police veteran, and retired trauma nurse).
3. Army Ranger veteran Ivan Chiplinsky (who was deployed to Haiti for six months while in service).

They need help.  We want only “quiet professionals” who are well trained and experienced current serving or prior police and military with appropriate backgrounds to help preserve the dignity and privacy of the church, the survivors, and the families of those killed as they grieve, recover, heal, and rebuild.   We are now responsible for the security of the church grounds (both inside and outside the fence), and we will be assisting with the security of future church services and as security escorts for survivors and the family of the deceased as they attend services.  We will also be available to provide security for funerals upon request of the families.

We have pledged to help the church with future security planning as they rebuild, and while on this mission, we will also be doing free security assessments for other churches in the area and throughout South Texas, and we will begin the process of training up church security teams.  We are doing all of this for free, as volunteers, under our oath obligations and as part of our Community Preparedness Team (CPT) program.

Volunteers should expect to be heavily vetted and be prepared to undergo a background check. We prefer Oath Keepers members, but highly qualified non-members may also volunteer.   This will be an armed detail, but it will be low profile and concealed carry.  We do have long guns (since the best response to a terrorist rifle threat is a rifle in the hands of the good guys, as Steven Willeford showed last Sunday), but they too will remain concealed.   Clothing will be solid colors only.  Oath Keepers shirts and hats are encouraged to help assist with identification of our volunteers.

Please note that Oath Keepers DID NOT reach out to the church or the pastors. They contacted us. Pastor Mark Collins (who used to pastor at the church) is assisting Pastors Pomeroy and Cornelius in dealing with this tragedy.  Pastor Collins has known me (Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes) for years and has worked with us in the past.  Both of us were in the documentary “Revelation: Dawn of Global Government” and we have spoken at the same patriotic gatherings around the nation for years.   Pastor Collins knows us, knows our past work, and trusts us to do this right, and that is why we were contacted to help. We are honored to help in any way we can.

Pastor Collins, who is best known nationwide for playing George Washington, is a great American patriot pastor and friend of Oath Keepers.   The other pastors are also fantastic men who deserve our support and assistance.

Pastor Collins on the news regarding the mass shooting:

While providing security for the church and the families, we are working alongside the Texas Highway Patrol, Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) (who are in overall command of the scene), BioTech and the Red Cross. This is a very important mission.   Yes, we do wish that the church had had an effective armed security team in place, with an effective security plan (as we have been calling for in all churches across America), but we must now help them heal and rebuild.   And we hope we can also be part of helping prevent this from happening again to this church or to others in South Texas (and nationwide).   Our mobile training team will begin in this area and will spread out from there.

Please donate to support the costs of travel and support for this critical mission.  DONATE HERE.

Please say a prayer for the Sutherland Springs community as they grieve, heal, and rebuild.  And please say a prayer for our volunteers as they do all they can to help in that process.

For the Republic,
Stewart Rhodes
Founder of Oath Keepers

PS – Here is an interview with good Samaritan, Stephen Willeford, on how he stopped the killing:

We only wish he, or someone like him, had been in the church parking lot when the killer first arrived, rather than having to run there after the attack had already started.   And that is why we strongly advocate that churches have an exterior security team, armed with rifles (concealed in their vehicle as they stand next to it), as well as concealed handguns on their person, so they can decisively stop such an attack at the outset.    We will train them to do just that (along with having a team on the inside, as well as attendees carrying concealed).  See our recommendations for church security here and here.

Pastor Collins as George Washington:

Marxist Nov. 4 “Revolution” Will Be a Massive Flop…BUT Lone Wolves or Small Terror Cells May Be “Triggered”

Marxist Nov. 4 “Revolution” Will Be a Massive Flop…BUT Lone Wolves or Small Terror Cells May Be “Triggered”

TLDR summary: The communist inspired Refuse Fascism Nov 4 kick off of a massive protest “color revolution” to remove Trump/Pence will be a flop, just like their attempt to stop Trump from taking office flopped, but there is a short-term risk of lone wolf or small cell terrorism against police and/or high-profile conservatives, and also a risk of assault for anyone on the right who blunders into an Antifa gathering (act accordingly if near them).   The long-term outcome is more dangerous, as this leftist fail will likely lead to frustrated hard-cores starting a modern version of the Weather Underground, and that could spark a real-deal left/right civil war.

Florida Oath Keepers in Action

Florida Oath Keepers are joined by Founder Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers from other states, and the organization One Nation Under God in disaster relief efforts. At two Naples locations, Oath Keepers  handed out 20 lb. bags of beans and rice, and One Nation Under God had water, diapers, first aid supplies, etc.

Oath Keepers are volunteering their time and effort to bring food, water, and other necessities to families hit hard by Hurricane Irma. We would also like to provide fuel cost reimbursement to our Oath Keepers who are using their own vehicles.

To help us keep our disaster relief operations going please donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/oathkeepersirma

Oath Keepers purchased over $2,000 worth of food, paper goods, plastic bags, diapers, and other supplies for a church relief distribution center in Frostproof, Florida.

Oath Keepers Hurricane Irma GoFundMe Campaign

Oath Keepers Hurricane Irma Relief

Oath Keepers are on the ground in multiple locations at some of the hardest hit areas that were devastated by Hurricane Irma.   We're already staged in South-Central Florida and in the heart of the Keys.   There are people without power, clean water, food, transportation, roofs and in some cases without any homes at all.  They WILL rebuild, but life for these Americans is extremely challenging right now.  

Some volunteers in other states have gathered truckloads of donated relief supplies, but don't have the money for the fuel to get it to us here in South Florida.  We also need money immediately to purchase more fuel to keep our generators running, mosquito repellent, medical supplies, tarps,motor oil, fuel filters, etc. 

Thank you for your generous support.  It is appreciated in ways that words cannot describe.

CALL TO ACTION: Volunteers and Donated Items Needed to Help Tornado Victims in Georgia

Oath Keepers (and all other American patriots),

Volunteers and donated items are greatly needed to help the tornado victims in Georgia, which has been devastated by over thirty tornadoes in less than three weeks in two separate major storm impacts, the first on January 2, 2017 and the second on January 21 and 22d, 2017.  See this map for details on affected areas in Georgia: FEMA declaration JAN 2017 Storm IA PA MAP

President Trump, to his credit, has reacted swiftly to fast-track federal disaster assistance and has now called Georgia’s Governor twice to coordinate (in contrast, Obama didn’t even bother to call the Governor, despite the first tornadoes hitting while Obama was still President).

However, the people of Georgia are still in desperate need of our assistance while the federal cavalry gets ramped up.   We now have an Oath Keepers CPT team on the ground there in Ashburn, GA, led by two of our North Florida leaders, Dave Schiffman (communications expert) and Ivan Chiplinsky.  They are in direct communication with the Turner County Sheriff’s Office incident commander, Lt. Reckley, and the Georgia State Defense Force, led by Lt. Colonel Yates and 1SGT White, and the word is they desperately need volunteer boots on the ground to help with disaster relief.

The Trump years are going to be crazier than you think.

Fellow Good People, 

For us to right what's wrong in America, as usual, we need to identify the who, what, how, when and why of what even happened to us.   If we're to become more effective, we need to become more sophisticated to these endsWE need to be studying how to make America great again.  The reason one man can't do it alone is because he's not America... WE are. 

"If you understand the situation, then you know you have a moral responsibility to do everything in your power to change the course we're on."

NavyJack – Operation HYPO: Infiltrating Violent Protests Against the President Elect
 “Clearly as Oath Keepers, we cannot simply sit around and watch while the enemies of liberty work to use violence to initiate a communist revolution in our country.  As a result of the intelligence being provided by our Operation Sabot operatives, we have initiated Operation HYPO. We have allowed our personnel to burrow deep inside these protest organizations to collect information regarding tactics, motivations, schedules and logistics.”



George Soros, the globalist billionaire who funds Black Lives Matter and dozens of socialist groups, is NOT happy that Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States of America.

And after the "progressives" spent the last 6 years screaming about how the Republican Congress is “obstructionist” for not giving Obama everything he wants, now we know George Soros is planning to do everything he can to obstruct President Trump.
