KNFC Shepherdess Coordinator: Mrs. J. Lutchman
The KNFC Shepherdess Retreat was held from the 9 – 11 September 2016 at “Banana Beach Holiday Resort”.
The theme for the retreat was “A Woman After God’s Expectations”
Jer. 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, sayeth the Lord. Plans to prosper you, and not to harm you. Plans to give you a future filled with hope”.
Purpose & Goals:
Seeking God’s Expectations for our shepherdesses, because there are so many different expectations, from various quarters, of what a pastor’s wife should be.
To bring the shepherdesses together where they could:
Encourage each other,
Uplift one another,
Learn skills to deal with the various challenges in the ministry,
Strive to find ones place in team-ministry.
Our conference consists of 50 Shepherdesses. Our sponsor is Mrs. Cordelia de Waal and the secretary to the Ministerial Association under which the Shepherdess Association falls is Sis. Ruth Nair.
The retreat was excellent and appreciated by the ladies, in future, we will strive to have our retreats during the school holidays and avail more time for social activities.
Firstly we want to thank God for His interventions, guidance, directions, and provisions during the entire retreat.
