unleash your purpose

You have a purpose in life. One that God designed the day you were born. He gave you unique gifts and talents to use to spread the light of Jesus to our community & world. You can activate those talents by volunteering at Shepherd’s Gate. Imagine all the fun you’ll have when you step in & serve at our church or step out & serve in our community. We promise to walk alongside you and get you plugged into the serving area best suited for you.


At Shepherd’s Gate, serving isn’t something we ‘have’ to do, it’s something we ‘get’ to do. By giving back and volunteering at church, we live out our purpose when we step in & serve others. You can use your God-given talents to make a difference in endless ways. Check out our Serving Guide and once you’ve found your perfect fit, sign up and we’ll be in touch.
