Become a Life Group Leader

Life Groups are essential for our spiritual growth here at Shepherd Church.” 

Dudley Rutherford | Senior Pastor

At Shepherd Church, we gather for weekend services for worship and a teaching from our senior pastor, but during the week, we gather to study an in-depth lesson inspired by the weekend’s sermon!

This is where you as a leader come in!

You have the potential to shepherd and lead a Life Group! We all do! But you’re here reading this and by you reading this, you are a step further in potentially leading!

“You don’t need a bible college to degree to become a leader. All you need is a desire to grow in your faith.”

Dudley Rutherford | Senior Pastor
