Shepherding Grace Ministries
Ministries focuses its people and its discipling ministry on the Grace
and Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe the transformation of
the natural and/or carnal person is a supernatural process which cannot
be accomplished through education and self effort, nor by trying to
improve the "old nature" or "flesh" through some
system or discipline. Transformation can only be achieved through the
ministry and work of God's indwelling Holy Spirit in agreement with
the Word of God and the active willing cooperation of the individual.
Therefore, our goal is that the Lord Jesus Christ in actuality and in
function becomes the very Life of the Christian disciple who then will
disciple others in like manner.

Q. Do you put much emphasis and focus on an individual’s past in the discipling

Q. Do you work with marriage relationships in your discipling?
- No. It is true that one’s past does influence an individual,

Q. In discipling couples, do you put undue pressure on one or the other
spouse to carry the blame for not submitting or performing their "duties"?
The shepherding grace model suggests a paradigm shift from the

life, He also indwells the Christian husband to enable the him
to carry the responsibility for the marriage as a gracious leader,
provider, encourager, lover and initiator, allowing his wife to
respond to him as his cooperative and loving partner.
Q. What kind of people do you work with?
- No. We
use the shepherding model for marriage and leadership. We look to
the Lord Jesus Christ as our Good Shepherd to provide leadership,
comfort and ability to carry out God’s design for marriage.
Q. How effective is your discipling ministry?

mission is to disciple men and women who are in ministry, whether
formally or informally. However, we also receive couples and singles who are struggling
in their walk with Christ and in other relationships.
Q. How does the Word of God and prayer with the individual fit with the discipling

as the individual is willing to entrust his or her life into the
all-sufficient Hands of the Lord Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd.
Generally speaking, upwards of 85% experience new life and health.
Q. What is your theological platform upon which you disciple?

each session to Jesus Christ for His direction and provision and
close every session with prayer. The scriptures are read and referred
