Investing in the Lord’s work is not something God wants from us, but for us! The New Testament does not require a percentage amount, but a willing spirit. The principles of willingness and cheerfulness are discovered in the Apostle Paul’s challenge to the Corinthians to give just as he purposed in his heart; not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7).

HOW WE USE YOUR GIFTS
The Ministry Fund is how we support all of the ongoing ministries of the church. This fund pays the staff, supports all of the ministry budgets, pays the mortgage and utilities, supports our global workers and is the primary means by which our ministry is supported. As you prayerfully consider your financial support to Lord’s work at The Shepherd’s Church, this is where your regular giving goes. Support of the other funds would be giving that is above and beyond your regular giving as the Lord enables you to give more.
The Debt Reduction Fund is an opportunity for you to accelerate the pace at which our debt is eliminated. While the base mortgage is paid from the Ministry Fund, all gifts to the Debt Reduction Fund go directly toward making additional debt payments.
Grace Promise giving supports The Shepherds Network and Shepherds International. The Shepherds Network allows us to plant and equip churches throughout
ANNUAL REPORT 2021
By God’s strength, grace and wisdom, our church has emerged from the last couple of years impacted by a pandemic stronger than ever! This past year we rejoiced over a record number of disciples publicly professing their faith in Christ through baptism. We’ve planted more churches, supported global initiatives, and trained more disciples to follow Christ. And in financial terms, our church body gave more this past year to the Lord than any previous year. We’re so thankful for God’s faithfulness!
