"One of the joys in my life has been pastoring The Shepherd's Fellowship over these years. It was born out of a heart for those hurt by church or Christians before who are giving church a fresh look. I have blessed by the testimonies of what God has done amongst us. The people are real and the freedom within the church family continues to impact and energize me. I am so thankful for our church family for my sake, my wife's sake, and for our children. Love you Fellowshipers!" - Pastor Tom Hypes
