Shepherd the Church encourages God called pastors, in how to effectively serve the church based on 1 Peter 5:1-6. The Shepherd is a pastor. For the pastor the model of shepherding can be applied to all areas of life.
The first priority is to follow the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. The second priority is to shepherd your family. The third priority is to shepherd the church God has entrusted you to serve. The fourth priority is to shepherd in kingdom opportunities, outside of the local church to reach people for Christ, and see the Kingdom of God advance.
Jesus instructed us to make disciples. Making disciples is accomplished through relationships. We must take seriously the responsibility to disciple new believers, and also those who are more mature in the faith.
