Feed My Sheep

February 15
Feed my Sheep brings together pastors and church leaders for encouragement and camaraderie. We want you to know you aren’t alone — there may even be a pastor a few miles (or a few blocks!) away who is looking for a ministry friendship.

Feed My Sheep is a one-day conference for those who love the local church. If the Word is the foundation of your ministry, the gospel its content, and God’s glory the goal, please meet with us on February 15, 2021.

This year we are excited to hear from Juan Sanchez, Senior Pastor of High Pointe Baptist Church in Austin, TX, and Brad Evangelista, Lead Pastor of CrossPointe Church in Columbus, GA.

We want anyone who loves the local church to benefit from Feed My Sheep. Perhaps you are an elder or a deacon or participate in women’s ministry or help with the youth. Feed My Sheep may target the pastor and church leader, but it’s a great environment for anyone involved in church ministry to be edified and equipped. May the “hearts of the saints” be “refreshed through” our time together (Philemon 1:7).

Serving Pastors Wives

Encouragement in pastoral ministry begins in the home with a pastor’s wife. She is the unsung hero in ministry, encouraging him with her words and entrusting him to the Lord with her prayers. At Feed My Sheep, we want to encourage the godly, gifted women serving her husband, family, and church.

Jeanine Sanchez will lead a special talk during lunch for all women. In the afternoon, Aaron Menikoff will lead a panel discussion with Juan and Jeanine about the joys and hardships of pastoral ministry. So we invite you and your spouse to join us for Feed My Sheep.
