Shepherds' Ministry

 


How Can a Shepherd Help You?

 

Because we care for you and your family, the pastor and shepherds of North Addison Baptist Church want to make certain that every member in our church experiences the love and support of the whole congregation. We want to be known throughout our community as a loving and caring church.

 

A part of each shepherds' meeting is spent praying about specific needs of families and in rejoicing over needs met and victories won. Another part of the meeting may be used in developing shepherds' skills in ministering to family needs.

 

How can a shepherd help you? Of course, you are the only one who can answer that question. However, there are some specific ways to consider:

 

  • Visiting you. – A shepherd will make visits throughout the year when someone in your family is in the hospital or you have sorrow or sickness in the home.

 

  • Witnessing to unsaved family members. – One of the shepherd's chief concerns is that every member of your family knows Christ as Savior.

 

  • Rejoicing with you and your family. – Shepherds will share your joy when you celebrate important events or accomplishments.

 

  • Being a friend. – As a shepherd listens to your troubles and concerns, you will know someone who cares.

 

  • Giving support in times of crisis. – Sometimes a shepherd can help you through a crisis by listening and giving support. Other times, he will know someone else or a community agency that can help.

 

  • Answering questions about your faith or about your church or denomination. – Shepherds will try to find the answers for you.

 

  • Helping you know and have fellowship with other members and families in the church. - Shepherds encourage you to participate in social occasions when families and church members get together for fun and fellowship.

 

  • Helping you find ways to serve in and through the church. – Shepherds watch for opportunities for you to use the talents, skills, and abilities God has given you.

 

  • Praying for you and with you. – Believing that you are important and believing in the power of prayer, shepherds will join with the pastor in praying for you and each member of your family.
