Project to fund The Shepherds New Recording "LIFE"
The Shepherds, (www.theshepherdsonline.net) as many of you know are a family group/ministry that have been traveling and working in the ministry for 30 plus years. We started out as a husband/wife evangelistic team and then added on Debra's sister, Sheri, then other family members and eventually began to promote our music. In the 80's, the song that Debra wrote " There's A Miracle In The Making" put the Shepherds out on a national level, back then our kids were babies, today they're a vital part of the Shepherds. We do and always have enjoyed what we do, we recognize it as a "calling". We sometimes hear remarks like "I don't know how y'all do it" when we can't really see ourselves not doing it.
This ministry is a walk of faith, we never know for sure what will come in from week to week, we just go and believe that God will provide and that if we give our best, prayerfully those who we minister to will also. We know that "bottom line" the same God who has taken care of us these 30 plus years will continue to do so, but we also realize that He works through people, people just like you! The reason for this Kickstarter page is the Shepherds began a new project over 2yrs ago, but we have not finished it due to the finances, it's long overdue! This new project will feature many new songs from the pen of Debra Shepherd, such as " Cast All Your Cares", "A Better Day", and the cover song "Life", just to name a few. We will also be re-recording some old material that have always been fan favorites of the Shepherds, the song the Shepherds do every night of their program "Hallelujah" will also be on this project! We're asking would you prayerfully consider as you have now been made aware of this need and ask the Lord if and what He would have you to do, no gift is too small or too large.
Now, you're here at Kickstarter and wondering "what is this all about"? The funding for a project becomes a little tricky, but thanks to this new website kickstarter.com, there is an exciting and new way to do it. If it's about you, the fans, and doing something for you... what better way to do a project, than build it with you? There are a list of rewards to the right of your screen that will be our way of saying "thank you" for your support. We are trying to raise $22,000 or more. The drive to raise the money will last for 40 days. Kickstarter will not charge your card until the minimal pledged amount, $22,000, is reached. If we don't match or surpass that amount, your card will not be charged, whatsoever. So you can see why reaching the goal is so important. REMEMBER... your credit card will NOT be charged if we don't meet the minimum goal of $22,000 by the deadline... THANK YOU AGAIN in advance for believing in this ministry and helping us today fulfill the Great Commission to go into all the world and carry the gospel of Jesus Christ! We have 40 days to meet this goal, so we ask you to help SPREAD THE WORD!
