“Nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, when we might have made demands as apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, just as a nursing mother cherishes her own children. So, affectionately longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us.” (1 Thess. 2:6-8)
Preparing Men to Shepherd in Church and Family
The church of Jesus Christ is in desperate need of godly, loving shepherds. For the church to be healthy, it must be led by men of integrity, humble men, men of love, and men who fear God. Additionally, for churches to be strong, they need to be made up of healthy, growing families led by faithful husbands and fathers.
Join us October 24-28, in Elizabeth, CO for a week of spiritual preparation. Our annual Shepherds Conference provides a rich combination of sound teaching, extended times of prayer, edifying fellowship, and hearty meals.
This conference is intended both for those sensing a call to future office in the church, and for those men and young men who desire spiritual maturity and the character of the godly shepherd as described in 1 Timothy 3.
