I am so excited to be here at Grace Community Church for my first Shepherd's Conference! Andrew is the guy in charge of the whole Bookstore this year and will be really busy, so I have decided to volunteer to help at the conference too. I will be involved in the shepherds shoppe where they sell all the merchandise for the conference. It looks like I will be receiving some training before the conference so I can be an overseer of the store, helping to fix any problems that come up... Today was the volunteer's meeting after the service, and there were over 600 people there, all ready and eager to serve the 3500 pastors and men who will come from all over the world to be encouraged and refreshed for ministry! The volunteers are all assigned to different areas and will be working together to make the conference as effective and smooth as possible. I am so blessed to be a part of this church!
Andrew and I can't wait to see a few of the South Africans who will be coming out to the conference, it will be such a sweet time of fellowship and ministry!
The Shepherd's Conference is from March 3-7 2010.
"Our mission is to provide the opportunity for men in church leadership to be challenged in their commitment to biblical ministry and to find encouragement as together we seek to become more effective servants of our Chief Shepherd."
