Ministerial Solutions

The Gospel, rightly understood, is holistic and it responds to people as whole people. It doesn’t single out just spiritual or just physical needs and speak to those. The Shepherd’s Tabernacle ministries are founded and transformed by the love of God, which responds to God’s call to share the gospel holistically with others through evangelism, social action, fun-based activities for at-risk youths and adults, economic development, and empowerment. Our experience includes community development, corporate planning, evangelism outreach, education, corporate training, counseling, mentoring, discipleship groups, character development, and business management.

Our community leaders and church workers essentially act as counselors, coaches, spiritual leaders, guardians, and facilitators for the communities in which we serve. In summary, our programs and ministries are as follows:

  • Community and Life Services and Programs
  • Youth Humanities and Arts
  • Professional Development and Growth
  • Veteran Care and Assistance
  • Prison Outreach
  • Mentor Programs
