About

We are more than just a shelter. Our goal is to create a safe and healing environment where hurting people can be transformed from the inside out.

Who We Are

At Shepherd’s House Ministries, we strive to feed the hungry and to shelter the homeless, but our deeper aim is to walk alongside the hurting and the needy to effectively address the life-controlling issues that perpetuate the long-term cycles of pain and homelessness. In an environment of grace, our goal is not to modify behavior. Our goal is to see hearts healed and lives changed from the inside out.

Why We Exist

Shepherd’s House Ministries exists to teach, train, and equip. We create and implement high-impact, transformative programs that God uses to radically change lives.

 

  • Teaching, Training, and Equipping
  • Transitional Housing
  • Adult Learning Center

The founders of Shepherd’s House Ministries are called to be the Church, city leaders, and business leaders.

  • As the Church, their mission is to create an authentic community of grace.
  • As city leaders, they want to become a positive force in their communities.
  • As business leaders, they seek to present Shepherd’s House Ministries as a benefit to our community that is worth supporting.
