Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. -Jeremiah 3:15
God has always provided the leaders we need to help us find Him, to understand His Will, and live abundantly in His world. From law givers and judges, to kings, prophets and priests, God ordained some who could bridge the divine divide.
Then He came to us Himself as high priest, father and friend, example and the Word eternal. But we would still need interpreters, encouragers, shepherds to lead us though dangerous and uncertain days, holding our hands from this world to the next. He gave us evangelists to enlighten us, ministers to prepare us, teachers to instruct us, but He blessed us with Pastors to love us and guide us safely home.
We appreciate the shepherd of our flock.
