CLICK HERE for more information on why we believe in local shepherds. You'll find passages that support the qualities we are looking for in these men, with the most important being their desire to be like the chief shepherd, Jesus Christ. You'll find passages point to who they are in their personal walk, their family, and how they already treat others. We desire for these men to be approachable for prayer, difficult life circumstances, and guidance on our path towards becoming more like Jesus.
After prayerful consideration, please submit the names of men you believe should be considered for the ministry of Shepherd in this church.
When you have completed the form, you may submit your nomination in one of the following ways:
