Secret Elders book LEAK | 2019 version Shepherd the Flock of God

The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses have authorised today the release of a 274 page fully revised and updated 2019 PDF version of their secret elders book “Shepherd the Flock of God”.

Within minutes of the highly controlled release of the Shepherd book it has been leaked onto the internet.

Instructions have also been issued to all elders that “use of the Index to Letters for Bodies of Elders (S-22) and the letters referenced therein has been discontinued. Any printed or electronic copies of such documents should be destroyed.”

Elders that require a printed copy of the Shepherd book (item number 5436 or the mnemonic sfl) will be sent a copy “wrapped to ensure confidentiality” and delivered to the coordinator of the body of elders.

Digital revisions of the Shepherd book will be released every six months. Significant policy adjustments will be biannual.

This document contains the Real Property Transfer Report for all Watchtower New York sales as well as the sale price, seller, purchaser, and the date of transfer.

Some US$1.8 billion of sales occurred from 2012 onwards, after Watchtower New York lost the Candace Conti case, and the jury awarded her US$28,000,001 which was later reduced by agreement between parties following an appeal.

Page 13 of the document relates to the sale of 67 Remsen Street, Brooklyn.
