Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His diving power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.2 Peter 1:2-4
“Moving men from isolation to connection to engagement”
The Men's Ministry offers an opportunity for men to connect with and serve one another in Christ through testimonies, friendship, service and prayer. We strive to provide a place for all men interested in learning more about Jesus or growing in their faith while spurring one another on in their journey. You are welcome to join us regardless of whether you are connected to a church or not.MISSION STATEMENT
Through the spoken Word, friendship, service and prayer move men from:
- Life in the flesh to life in the Spirit
- Living for this world to living for His kingdom

At Christ Our Shepherd we seek to serve our congregation in specific ways according to their specific needs and desires. We have ministries for Men, Women, Youth and Children, with opportunities for you to get involved. We also have opportunities for you to serve through Worship Team, receive prayer from our Prayer Team, and come alongside our local and international Ministries, Care Company and The Antioch Group. We invite you to learn more and get involved!
Jesus said, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
Children were important to Jesus, and they are important to us. God is the master architect and builder of each unique child, but we as a community of believers and parents are the workers God uses to build up each child.
Our Vision: Every generation Planted in Christ and Flourishing in the House of God.
Our Mission: To engage lovingly, pursue purposefully, relate intentionally with the next generation, teaching them to KNOW God truly, GROW together spiritually and to SHOW God's love faithfully.
We hope you join us!
Leader: Chantel F. Grant

At Christ Our Shepherd Church it is understood that Healing Prayer is a valuable part of bringing restoration of wholeness, well-being and health of mind, emotions, body and soul where there has been loss of such for any reason.
Healing Prayer is not a counseling service, nor is it considered a professional service. It is a response to scriptural encouragements to brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for one another.
All information given during a time of Healing Prayer is considered strictly confidential. It will not be discussed outside of those circumstances unless the information shared is considered harmful to that person or others, at which point pastoral counsel may be sought.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR HEALING PRAYER
Healing Prayer Service
Spiritual Healing: The greatest healing of the soul is salvation. Other spiritual healing will take place as we grow in the Lord and as we pray for each other. (Jn. 3:16, 10:10)
THE PRIORITY OF WORSHIP
In our Sunday gatherings and mid-week homegroup meetings, worship is one of the means we have for exalting, praising and expressing our love for God. In our expressions of worship, God is blessed and glorified, and we are refreshed, healed and renewed in our understanding of who He is and what He has done for us. We aim to draw closer to God and to experience both the awe and intimacy of being in His presence.
It is always our desire to continue to expand the depth and breath of the worship team, and to identify, nurture and release persons gifted by the Lord to participate in leading worship in a variety of different ministry settings.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?
A sense of calling to minister in music, dance, technical service or other artistic expressions during this season of your life. Many people are gifted musically but a smaller number are called by God to minister in the church. (1Chr. 25:1,6-8; 1Cor. 12:4-7)
Attend worship team meetings and introduce yourself to the team. Bring your instrument, voice, dancing feet, technical knowledge, or art supplies and worship with the team in rehearsal. If the Lord is raising you up, you won't have to sell yourself.
