Shepherding Associates

Shepherding Associates work with Elders (including Pastors) and Deacons to bring spiritual care to women in difficulty. Shepherding Associates have completed a full year of training and are skilled listeners with the ability to ask good questions and apply biblical principles to life experience. They are recognized as demonstrating the spiritual gifts of mercy, wisdom, and discernment. A woman might engage the assistance of a Shepherding Associate by her own request or through the recommendation of pastoral staff, ministry leaders, or a friend.
