Mike and Lucille Williams

Just a quick word on the BEST children's pastor in AMERICA. Mike and Lucille (aka Sarah Palin) Williams have been serving here at Shepherd for more than 8 years. Mike oversees birth through 5th grade and has a team of dedicated staff and volunteers that enable him to lead close to 1200 children each weekend throughout all 5 of our worship services.

One of the PILLARS of our church is the quality and care that is given to our children and their parents each week. Mike and his staff are dedicated to making sure each child is cared for and properly taught the Word of God.

Just recently, we had a Baby Dedication Service in which approximately 100 children dedicated to the Lord. Each parent went through a class and the value of raising children in a Godly home was explained. Then, during the service, Mike preached a powerful message from God's Word, furthering the importance of Godly parenting.

Whenever you find a great church, you know there must be a top-of-the-line children's ministry, and we are so blessed here at Shepherd to have such a Godly man like Mike and his entire family working on the Lord's behalf.

A GIANT word of thanks to Mike and Lucille and the time and energies invested in the children of Shepherd.
