Shepherds Theological Seminary was birthed in 2002 by the vision of senior pastor of Colonial Baptist Church (Cary, NC), with the vision “…to produce a generation of servant leaders who are equipped for effective ministry within their local church, and to prepare those who will serve vocationally as pastors, teachers, global workers, educators and ministry leaders.”  In the past 15 years, STS has grown from a handful of graduate students in one degree program to a vibrant accredited seminary with graduates now serving Christ and His church in 15 countries abroad as well as 25 States here in our own country.

The Shepherds Network is the channel through which Colonial and our partner, Shepherds Theological Seminary, strategically develop and network qualified church planters. We assist them by providing training, coaching, fellowship, resources, and opportunities for growth.  TSN provides financial and other resources to church planters in various parts of the country. Although not a denomination, this network of churches provides an opportunity for pastors and church leaders to encourage one another and develop professionally through training and conferences. You support the work of The Shepherds Network when you contribute to GRACE PROMISE

Shepherds International is our sending agency for global staff. SI provides administrative support for workers who have been sent by Colonial and our partner churches into strategic parts of the world.  In this way, Shepherds International helps us achieve our strategic disciple-making initiatives in various parts of the world. You support the work of The Shepherds Network when you contribute to GRACE PROMISE.  WEBSITE
