What is the result of our work?
Witness and Service
People without a faith community join us in experiencing Christ in a grace-filled hospitable community. The needs of people outside of Good Shepherd are met through acts of service and kindness.
On an annual basis, 37% of the total expenditures and 36% of unpaid staff (volunteers) or $201,311 is invested for this purpose. (This is an example of information that was developed for each of the areas. This includes an estimated value for the amount of time invested by volunteers, at $15/hour. Percentages of time for staff and for use of building were included in the calculations.)
