Each year, new Shepherds are nominated and selected to the Shepherd team.  


The current Shepherds are:  Norma Dowd, Gino Peña, David Tobey, Brian Short, Teresa Short, and Vickie Covington. The pastoral staff are also participating Shepherds, including TW Davis, Amy Stevens, Tyler Murphy, Nina Pena, and Cody Singleton.


The Highpoint Fellowship bylaws state: 

The Shepherds are a team of lay church members whose purpose is to provide spiritual guidance, compassionate care, and teaching to the church. Shepherds serve the role as ascribed to elders, bishops, or overseers in the Bible. (I Timothy 3:1 – 7Titus 1:6 – 9I Peter 5:1 – 4)


Responsibilities of the Shepherds include, but are not limited to:

  1. Providing Spiritual Guidance
    • Intercede daily for spiritual wisdom and insight (Ephesians 1:17).
    • Develop relationships by being present and available (especially in groups, classes, ministries and the lobby). Show up.
    • Identify and disciple growing Christians so they, in turn, can disciple others.
    • Lovingly lead members to resolve relational problems in a Biblical way.
    • Gently restore people who are caught in a sin. Always be aware of how easy it is to be tempted. Be willing to bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:1-2).
  2. Providing Compassionate Care
    • Show unconditional love to all members regardless of their opinions, personalities, backgrounds or failures.
    • Respond to prayer requests. The Shepherds should ensure that all requests are covered in prayer.
    • Visit those in the hospital, the sick and the homebound (when appropriate).
    • Provide generous support to the Trustees, the Staff, Ministry Leaders and fellow Shepherds through encouragement, mentoring and prayers.
    • Communicate with your fellow Shepherds in sharing responsibility to provide pastoral care.
    • Be hospitable.
  3. Providing Teaching a. Teach through actions, words and the Scriptures.
    • Guard the church from unbiblical teaching.

We affirm that we are wholly inadequate to the task of shepherding God’s church. We rely on the Holy Spirit more than any process or system.  Our prayer is- first, middle, and always- that we are being transformed into Christ’s likeness through the power and leading of the Lord, who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18).
