Dear Members and Friends of Shepherd’s Gate,
I know that every day is a wonderful gift from God, but there are days that stand out as defining moments in life. Our Church Summit on Saturday, August 2 is a major defining moment for Shepherd’s Gate. I cannot tell you how excited I am for this day and I want you to be there! It will be a seminal day for seeking God for what He wants at Shepherd’s Gate. August 12 is the launch date for us to set clear direction for mission and ministry in the next few years.
For the last several months we have undergone a diagnostic consultation with Dr. Kent Hunter and his team in order to assess our potential for mission and ministry. Dr. Hunter will give his oral report from 9 am – 12 noon in the Worship Center. He report will include statistics about our church and our community, findings from the interviews he performed with our staff and a good number of our members and his recommendations for how we can best fulfill our God-given mission to fill the world with dynamic disciples. This is a time for ridiculous faith. This is a calling to ridiculous commitment. And our ridiculous commitment of faith is because of Jesus our Savior whose mission continues through us to seek and save the lost.
Every Day’s a Mission Trip,
On Saturday, August 2 our Church consultant, Kent Hunter presented his findings from the congregational survey, interviews, and observations from attending various functions at the church.
