Welcome to LU Shepherd
LU Shepherd exists to develop Champions for Christ by fostering a holistic community through peer mentorships, pastoral care, and life-skills training. Our office is led by a team of dedicated professionals with a variety of ministerial backgrounds ranging from collegiate to church, to missions. The LU Shepherd team is passionate about training Resident Shepherds and Community Group Leaders to grow in Christ, who in turn, unite with our mission by investing in the spiritual growth of the student in their residences. In addition, LU Shepherds are visible across campus, focused on building relationships with students through casual conversations and more in-depth encounters. The ultimate goal of LU Shepherd is accomplishing Liberty’s mission of Training Champions for Christ.
Throughout the year the LU Shepherd office will be providing several opportunities to practice spiritual disciplines to help you grow deeper in your relationship with God. In Richard Forster’s book Celebration of Disciplines he writes, “God has given us disciplines of the spiritual life as a means of receiving grace. The disciplines allow us to place ourselves before God so that he can transform us.” We will focus our attention on what Richard Foster labels inward disciplines: Meditation, Prayer, Fasting, and Study.
