Each year around this time we invite evangelical ministers and wives of all denominations from around Kansas to meet in Wichita for an annual DAY of RENEWAL.  That event occurred yesterday.

Shepherds’ Fold exists to offer year-round care and encouragement for pastors, their spouses and families.  DAY of RENEWAL is one vital part of that ongoing ministry.  In it, we

  • bring in noted speakers to recharge our batteries and lead us a bit closer to the Master Shepherd’s design for this crazy, never-boring, Eternity-powered calling to shepherd His sheep.
  • We provide top-drawer musicians and singers from area churches to lead the crowd in some spirited, energetic and worshipful singing and reflection.
  • We work with terrific local businesses who sponsor, and often donate, time and resources to feed, empower, revitalize and reward everyone who comes each year.

We give each church represented a packet of information about the speaker’s personal ministry and written material; books written by ministers involved with Shepherds’ Fold; small but useful gifts to take home and use; and always an updated list of retreat locations for pastors.  This year highlights seven scattered around the country, with email contact for 10 more.

  • We have ongoing onsite prayer support sponsored by a local church which begins as the first musical intro sounds and does not stop until the final ‘Amen’.

This is our way of recognizing God’s men and women from The Front.  They come to us spanning the emotional spectrum.  We welcome men and women bubbling with joyful, positive excitement that can’t wait to get back, to harried, exhausted warriors needing spiritual triage, unsure if they want to go back and everything in between.

Every year, it’s our prayer that the Holy Spirit who knows – knows us all will do His amazing reconstructive, revitalizing work.  Our desire is that no man or woman leaves the same way they arrived.

It’s called DAY of RENEWAL.  We are SHEPHERDS’ FOLD.

To all the spiritual warriors who attended:  be strong and of good courage.  Thank you for your service.  Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
