the flock
under his care.

  The Bible repeatedly refers to believers as God’s sheep and the Lord as our shepherd—what a tender relationship we have with our God! But these terms also communicate our total dependence on him for guidance and care and protection. He provides for our bodies day by day and refreshes our souls with the green pastures and still waters of his Word and Sacraments (cf. Psalm 23). “He is our God, and we are… the flock under his care” (Psalm 95:7).

Meet the team.

  In his wisdom God also appoints under-shepherds to care for our souls. The word “pastor” means “shepherd”, but pastors are not called to carry out this ministry alone.  The writer to the Hebrews encourages Christians to remember and imitate the spiritual leaders within their congregations who watch over you as men who must give an account (13:7, 17). These are also “shepherds” who care for God’s people. The goals of the Shepherding Ministry are to:
· Foster an environment of mutual care and concern for one another
· Ensure no member of Ascension goes astray
· Enlist the help of members in basic congregational tasks such as Sunday snacks, greeting guests and ushering
· Help new members assimilate into the life of Ascension

  In short, the this ministry aims to respond to God’s grace by Serving the Lord and Serving Each Other!
