I recently received the following words from a former student of mine: "Comprehensive and encouraging, Dr. Witmer's The Shepherd Leader is a key resource for how we shape our youth leaders." - David Plant, Director of Youth Ministries, Redeemer Presbyterian Church of New York City. As I read this email I wanted to remind you to encourage the ministry leaders of your church to take a shepherding approach to those for whom they are responsible. If small group leaders, youth leaders, men’s, women’s and music ministry leaders, etc. all take this relational approach to ministry seriously it will only enhance the shepherding ministry of the elders of the church.
