Jesus said, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love Me?’

‘Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.’

‘Take care of My sheep.’ 

(John 21:15)

 

Time and time again Jesus is referred to as our Good Shepherd, and here in John, we see that Jesus calls us to follow in His footsteps and take care of His sheep – His lost people, the hurting, the vulnerable.

In The Shepherd Project, we are building up shepherds in our community, specifically within the church, to protect, lead, and care for our brothers and sisters. In this year-long initiative, we are excited to equip the Church with tools and resources to protect the vulnerable and respond to sexual abuse. We will be addressing pornography, child abuse, sexual assault, and sex trafficking, through the lenses of prevention, intervention, and recovery.
