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

An advisory body that meets monthly to assist the pastor. Council members provide consultation through prayer, study, dialogue, discipline and discernment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Mindful of our Parish Mission Statement, we actively listen to the needs of parishioners and share our wisdom at Council meetings. Discussions include but are not limited to Liturgy & Spirituality, Family Faith Formation and Adult Education, Pastoral Care and Hospitality, Social Initiatives & Outreach, Facilities and Finances, Parish Governance & Communications. The members help the Pastor decide the future needs of the parish. Final decisions are reserved for the Pastor.

Members of the Parish Advisory Council

Secretary:  Donna Campbell, Director of Parish Engagement 

Members:   Fr. Michael Higgins, David Brockman, Michael Brumley, Jackie Cummings, Marc Dabal, Victor del Moral,  Kyle Eberlein,  Donna Furin, Karen Kiefer, David Kinney, Larry Landry, Jacque Oley, Bob Parra, Amin Rosado, and Mike Vinez

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.

Members: Ken Coffey, Marc Dabal, Martha Eberlein, Bob Eilendfeldt, Angela Gallegos, Lisa Goodwin, Elizabeth Grace, Cheryl Helms, Rich Hendler, Terrie Kremer, Holly Lane, Carol Lorenz, Rob Martin, Tere Martin, Ray Matteson, Deb McNamara, Teresa Oveson, and Linda Slocum

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. 

Members of the Parish Finance Council:

Secretary:   Michael Vinez, Business Manager

Members:  Fr. Michael Higgins, David Behrmann, , Kevin Isbell,  Ron Johansson, Ken Kempker, Lon Kile, Donna Springer and Michael Vinez 

Servant Lead Team 

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.

Members: Fr. Michael Higgins, Fr. Ronald Mohnickey, Fr. John Mark Klaus, Fr. Zachary Burns, Brian Bacon, Donna Campbell, Johnny Philp, Tammy Sandoval, Michael Vinez

Evangelization - Discipleship Council

TEMPORARILY ON HOLD - 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 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
