Maybe you have never thought of yourself as a shepherd, but that is what God calls us to be for our families, for our friends and for our community. The Shepherds’ Conference is a chance to learn more about how to lead your family biblically, learn more about homeschooling, and how to detect and protect those that we love from those wolves.
