shepherds

First Pres shepherds receive training in theology, crisis care, skilled listening, and peacemaking so they may help shoulder the burden of life’s struggles. Their desire is to come alongside our members to provide spiritual care and counsel while also connecting you with other assistance as needed. We encourage you to reach out to your shepherd when you have a need.
