What is Feed My Sheep?

Feed My Sheep is a one-day conference on Thursday, September 14th from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM to equip and encourage church leaders in truth, leadership, and fellowship. This event is an effort to provide pastors a chance to fellowship together and provide a time of encouragement as we delve into topics related to pastoral ministry so that together we may "not grow weary of doing good" (Gal 6:9). This year’s theme will revolve around the doctrine of total depravity and its implications for pastoral ministry.
