“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” (Isa. 42:16)
This was the word the Spirit spoke to catapult Helen and I into a life of focused ministry.
Through the years of pastoring and ministering together, we have discovered the incredible joys of the truth of Isaiah 42:16. Our hearts have also been broken many times as we watched the burnout of other ministry leaders – friends, colleagues and mentors.
We were not immune ourselves, and over the course of time, came to a place of personal “ministry ruin” that almost took my life. The Lord brought supernatural healing. A new ministry perspective, calling to be a pastor to pastors, and a vision for the revitalization of Christ’s Church followed!
Shepherd 2 Shepherd Ministries is the resulting work of the Holy Spirit in us and in those who have a like-hearted passion. Prayer and intimate relationship with our Supreme God is our foundational principle.
It is our desire that anyone connected with Shepherd 2 Shepherd will be drawn into deeper intimacy with Jesus.
Around the world there is a growing awakening in God’s people of the need for revitalization of Church leadership. There are many opportunities to work together toward this end. Thank you for considering how the Holy Spirit may be directing you.
We pray you are blessed with an ever-increasing awareness of His love. David & Helen Thew
