Shepherds Conference2018-09-19T11:53:04+00:00

Calling all Fathers, Young Men, and Church Leaders!

You are invited to a unique conference for elders, fathers, and younger men who seek to be spiritual leaders at Kevin Swanson’s home on November 5-9, 2018 in Elizabeth, CO.

Our families are crying out for spiritual leadership. Our churches are crying out for spiritual leadership.

This isn’t a leadership that is consumed with tertiary doctrinal issues, mere externals, and human methodologies. It is a leadership consumed with the Word of God, the Holy Spirit of God, and the work of God in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Judgment begins in the household of God. If this be the case, what is the Lord teaching the churches in America and the Western world? We need men of spiritual sensitivity and spiritual ears to hear what the Lord is teaching.

We are coming together for:

  • Encouraging messages on revivals, reformations, and Kingdom breakthroughs.
  • Gospel tonic for the discouraged and downtrodden.
  • Equipping messages for our prayer life.
  • Challenging presentations on our needs and prophetic burdens for the day in which we live.
  • Bold and faith-filled discussions on building family and church.

By God’s grace, we will leave as:

  • Faith-filled men strong in the Lord, and the power of His might.
  • Godly men, who love the wholesome words of Jesus Christ.
  • Repentant, humble men, who seek the presence of God.
  • Contra-mundum men, opposing the world and loving God.
  • Prayerful men, who passionately desire revival and reformation.

Is the Shepherds Conference for you?

Five days of spiritual development for:

Men who seek spiritual revival
Men who seek spiritual maturity
Men who seek spiritual leadership vs. carnal methods of leadership
Men who seek solid theological grounding
Men who seek better accountability
Men who seek to be better teachers of the Word
Men who seek to contribute to building stronger churches
Men who seek to better “understand the times”
Men who seek an extended time of fellowship in Christ, Word, prayer, confession, and worship
