During your Encounter, your group will be provided with class shepherds to assist you as you start your Community Life. An LSS shepherd will also be assigned to you when you take your Life in the Spirit Seminar to prepare you in receiving the anointing of the Holy Spirit. And, as a Committed Disciple transit through the various ministries and homesteads during Formation, he or she will be assigned a shepherd as well. Your Community Shepherds are there to be your companion in your spiritual walk.
Community Shepherds went through the same Encounter Retreat, LSS and Formation track until they became Covenant Disciples. As they receive God’s healing, graces and blessings while journeying in Community, they too pay it forward by committing to shepherding.
