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
Pastoral Advisory Council (PAC)

Good Shepherd is seeking four new members for our Pastoral Advisory Council!  Click here to learn more!

Description of the Pastoral Advisory Council:

An advisory body that meets monthly to assist the pastor.  Pastoral Council members, who serve a three-year term, provide consultation through prayer, study, dialogue, discipline and discernment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Mindful of our Parish Mission Statement, they actively listen to the needs of parishioners and share their wisdom at Council meetings.  They are actively engaged in our parish’s overarching goal of evangelizing and making missionary disciples in the Franciscan tradition of reconciliation and conversion of heart.  Discussions include but are not limited to how parish ministries and leadership models are contributing to this goal at Good Shepherd.  Members seek ways to cooperate with other councils and departments of the parish in moving us forward from maintenance to mission.  Final decisions are reserved for the Pastor.

This is an advisory body that meets every 2nd Thursday of each month to assist the pastor. Council members provide consultation through prayer, study, dialogue, discipline and discernment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 

All are welcome to attend but must call the parish office to RSVP. 

Members of the PAC:

Chair:  Fr. Richard Eldredge, TOR

Secretary:   Donna Campbell

Members:  Suzi Brunner, Wynn Calland, Fraser Hay, Bill Jenkins, Susan Kleiser, Greg Lombard, Stephanie Sanchez, and Zach Smith

Evangelization - Discipleship Council

Good Shepherd is seeking two new members for our Evangelization & Discipleship Council!  Click here to learn more!

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. 

Member of the Parish Finance Council:

Chair:  Fr. Richard Eldredge, TOR

Secretary:   Michael Vinez

Members:  David Behrmann, Walter Hawrylak, Kevin Isbell,  and Donna Springer 

Servant Lead Team Lead

An advisory body of staff persons that meet once a week with the pastor to provide guidance and solutions in the areas of infrastructure and organization of the staff and parish.
