What is this conference all about?
In its early years the Impact Conference was a celebratory event of God’s work in and through the global workers supported by The Shepherd’s Church. Over time it developed beyond simply listening to reports from the field to now include training for all believers to become effective disciple-makers in their own sphere of influence. God’s work among the nations is still celebrated, but Christians are also challenged and equipped to obey Jesus Christ’s command to make disciples, whether locally or globally.

Jesus Christ’s last command was to make disciples wherever we go. The Impact Conference is an opportunity to learn, grow, be inspired, and engage with like-minded believers who are devoted to being doers of the Word and not just hearers.
"My wife and I have attended this conference since the beginning. From the first time we attended, not a day has gone by that we have not felt the impact of this conference in our daily lives. We were changed."
"Whether you are a new believer or a mature Christian, this conference is a poignant reminder of why we exist."
"It took away that sense of fear that sometimes comes with the word 'evangelism.' It has become just a natural process."

Need another reason?
This year, we will be featuring Esteamed Coffee, a non-profit outreach which will offer opportunities for employment to those with disabilities, and they will be providing coffee to attenders over the conference weekend! Several individuals from our church family are part of the Esteamed Coffee business plan, and Esteamed Coffee’s vision fits well with the theme of our 2021 Impact Conference: Truth and Love – boldly standing on God’s truth and passionately demonstrating God’s love. For those reasons, 50% of the registration fees from our 2021 conference will be given to Esteamed Coffee to help make their plan become a reality! That’s one more reason you should attend this year’s Impact Conference! Esteamed Coffee will be selling coffee and items at the conference. They will be available for cash or check only.
