The seeds of Shepherd’s Fellowship of Greensboro extend back to the Fall of 2004 when a few families started meeting in Sterling and Bronni VanDerwerker’s home. Their desire was to meet together for Sunday worship while seeking God’s wisdom as to a new church that would be marked by obedience to the Word of God, a commitment to prayer, and a zeal to see God glorified and honored in all things.
During that time, under the leadership and Bible teaching of Dustin Segers and Sterling VanDerwerker, the small group became convinced that God would be pleased for them to take the necessary steps to plant a new church. Since that time, God has been faithful to grant us spiritual growth as well as some numerical growth. By God’s grace, the leadership and families involved have continued to lay a solid foundation for Shepherd’s Fellowship of Greensboro. In April of 2012 we were blessed with successful training examination and appointment of Pastor Jeff Burns and Pastor Cody Curtis were ordained as elders.
In the short existence of Shepherd’s Fellowship of Greensboro, God’s work has been evident. It is exciting to consider what God may be pleased to do through this body of believers in the future. Our desire is that He would be honored every step of the way. The ultimate purpose of Shepherd’s Fellowship of Greensboro is to be a Church that glorifies God in all our efforts for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With Christ as our Head, the Bible as our authority, and evangelism and disciple making as our mission Shepherd’s Fellowship of Greensboro seeks to fulfill the purpose Christ gave to His church. Shepherd’s Fellowship is a Church that is committed to family worship and establishing those ministries which The Holy Spirit provides through servanthood and those which honor God and support our purpose and commitments.
