With Pastor Tom on a mission trip, Elder Ginger Holloway steps in to give a powerful study on God’s holiness and what it means to our lives. This is part of our summer challenge series that covers Leviticus through Deuteronomy.


As we do our “Bible in 90 Days” challenge, our studies will explore more deeply a nugget found in the Scripture reading from that week.

In this study, we go deeper into a repeating theme in the reading on God being all about restoration. We go deeper into a season in the life of Jacob where he was acting in fear but once he leaned into God, had his entire family, protection, and provision restored in an awesome way.

If you are in place where you are afraid or acting in “damage control” mode, dig into this study to be reminded of God’s promises, testimonies, and goodness. Doing so leads to confidence in the Lord, moving in faith, and restoring your hope!


The summer is a great time for fun, sports, and travel but at The Shepherd’s Fellowship, we want it to mean much more!

In this podcast, we unleash the complete plan of what the Summer Challenge is! While a large portion of our focus is the “Bible in 90 Days” project, there is more to be revealed!

After 13 months of study on havign a meaningful life, join us as we take a HUGE step together to putting the teaching to action in a way that dials discipleship up to 11!

Church Discipline

What do you do when someone you love is falling back into a pattern of sin?

How do you handle it when you find out someone has been gossiping about you?

How do you act with someone who left your church in a hurtful way?

All of these questions have to do with church discipline. In this study, we explore why church discipline is critical, what it’s goals should be, and the freedom it can lead to. It’s not an easy topic. Actually, it’s one many would like to avoid (which we also explore) but when we ignore church discipline, it leaves a trail of pain and hurt behind that push many away from church all together.

We invite you to take a fresh look at church discipline and what your part is in the process (Hint: It’s not just the pastor’s job).

In this study, we explore how the Bible came to be. (Spoiler Alert: It has nothing to do with the Council of Nicea).

As we do, we find that God goes through incredible lengths to give us His Word, protect His Word, and speak to us through His Word. We look at the validation of the Scripture and how we know it’s the Word of God.

This also serves as the set up for our 2017 Summer Challenge at The Shepherd’s Fellowship (see that video on our church Youtube page).

For Mother’s Day, we did a study on two of many women of faith and what we can learn about them if we want to be people of influence in the lives of others (including our children).

We also found a reason why we can all celebrate on Mother’s Day even if we did not have positive moms, made some mistakes ourselves, are dealign with infertility, or have experienced the loss of a parent.


As we continue through the purpose of the local body church, this week we will dig into studying what the point of ministry is. Many of us has an assumption of how the church works in ministry because of the way we were raised. Hint: Many of us have a wrong understanding.

We each have a role when it comes to doing ministry in this world… even you! You are a unique, created individual with a special make up to do great things. When we come together as Christ’s family and do this work in unity, it changes not just the community around us but our own lives as well. Come explore the possiblities with us!
