ABOUT US

Good Shepherd's Mission

“In welcoming all, we form disciples who know, love, and serve God and neighbor.”

 

Who is a disciple? A disciple welcomes God’s people, encounters Jesus Christ, grows in Jesus Christ, serves God’s people, and shares the Gospel. At Good Shepherd, we seek to foster a lifestyle of discipleship focused on these five characteristics of a disciple.  Click here to learn more about our mission!

Stats & Structure

GSCC Councils
Evangelization - Discipleship Council

This Council exists as a working group to support, promote and implement the pastoral plan for evangelization and discipleship at Good Shepherd.  The Council as a whole works in a collaborative fashion with parish leadership, including Parish Advisory Council (PAC), parish ministries and Good Shepherd staff, along with the Diocesan Offices of Stewardship and Evangelization.  Our primary aim is to accomplish our purpose through communicating a unified vision of what it means to "live discipleship" through five simple words:  Welcome (radical hospitality), Encounter (making disciples) Grow (growing/apprenticing disciples), Serve (stewardship as the response of a Christian disciple), Share (missionary discipleship/apostleship).  Each of these five words represent an essential aspect of what it means to be a Christian disciple

Members of Evangelization - Discipleship Council

Chair:  Donna Campbell (interim)

Members:   David Brockman, Michael Brumley, Jenny Casey, Norma Duane, Vicki Findley, Donna Furin, Stewart Jenkins, Melissa Kates, David Kinney, Larry Landry, Jacque Oley, Bob Parra, Russell Parks, Ricky Sanchez, and Shandelyn Speake

Mission - Outreach Council

An advisory body that meets once a month to assist the pastor.

This joint council is co-chaired by a Lead for Mission and a Lead for Outreach.  Both Leads develop task forces, teams and committees who work between meetings in order to provide reports at a monthly meeting.  Mission emphasizes how constituencies of our parish can contribute to missionary opportunities, especially through our covenant with the Trade School in Campamento, Honduras.  Outreach emphasizes how constituencies of our parish can respond with their resources to help meet local needs within the community at large.  Mission and Outreach are two sides of the same coin that cross-pollinate and lead us to social action for the common good.

Parish Finance Council

This is an advisory body that meets bimonthly to assist the pastor.

Council members with experience in business, finances or economics are appointees of the pastor. This council advises the pastor on all financial matters: audits the monthly parish accounts, approves the annual parish budgets, and reports on finance meetings at Holy Trinity Catholic School. Council members also advise the pastor on cash-flow needs and our savings account, proposed maintenance projects, site development projects and capital expenditure projects, whether short or long-term. We provide direction regarding financial stewardship of the parish as well as diocesan and parish financial campaigns. Decisions are reserved to the Pastor.
