COMMISSIONING OF CHURCH OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD AS OFFICIAL MISSION OF THE DIOCESE

BY TOM BOST

APRIL 26TH,2016

The ministry of Church of the Good Shepherd began in the fall of 2012 as a dozen or so folks from Christ Church in Winston-Salem gathered for Bible Study and prayer in Davie County, NC.   From our earliest times together we have believed that we were meant to be a church for those who are “like sheep without a Shepherd,” for those who don’t know Christ and for those without a Church home. (Mark 6:34; Matthew 9:36)

 

 

God has made this vision a reality.  With a great amount of help from our sending church and with aid from several other churches in our region and after four years of worshipping together, serving together, studying together, praying together, eating together, planning together, and the inclusion of many new sheep… God has grown a church in Bermuda Run, NC.  

 

On April 10th, Bishop Steve recognized this work of God and commissioned us as a mission of the Diocese of Christ Our Hope.  This visit from Bishop Steve, where he also confirmed some 20 persons, marks a new stage in our life as a Church, and we are thankful.

 

We ask for your prayers: that God would continue to knit us together as a community, that God would continue to refresh us in our times of worship and prayer.  Pray for protection from spiritual attack: unconfessed sins, divisions, disease and family problems.  Pray for the continued expansion of lay ministry in our church, and for our leaders: our newly established Vestry, Life Groups Leaders, support staff and pastoral staff. 

 

 

 

Our mission is to plant, build, and equip disciple-making Anglican churches, their people, and those who serve them.
