Jesus Christ created us for good works, so one of our priorities at Shepherd is to help one another discover our gifts and the good works that we are created for. Our Mission Teams are volunteers who serve outside the church bringing the love of Jesus to others. They serve key ministry partners locally, nationally, and internationally. No experience is necessary—training or orientation is always provided. To get connected with a Mission or Outreach Team, contact Amy Jaynes.
