“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”2 Timothy 2:1-3
The first practical purpose of Shepherd School is to help men lead their families.
The second is to help men lead their small group, if and when they have one.
The third practical purpose is to train up would-be pastors who “aspire to the office of overseer” which is “a noble task” (1 Tim. 3:1).
We want to be as practical and as hands-on as possible. We will meet once per week on average. We will study the Bible, the 1689 Baptist Confession, and helpful books that will be useful in training all involved to be good soldiers of Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 2:1-3).
This is not an average Bible study or small group setting. This is training for war. By the grace of God this will be intensely challenging and edifying for all involved.
