Michael Shepherd - Pastor
Pastor Mike and his wife, Susan, have been married for over 28 years and are thankful to be serving together in ministry. Mike is a bi-vocational pastor who works to make a living and lives to work for God. Sue is a stay-at-home mom who loves to share her faith and encourage the people around her. They have been blessed with four sons, Joseph, Wesley, Matthew and Christian and one daughter, Brooke.
Mike and Sue have been used by God to plant two churches, Standing Stones Church (2000) in Tinley Park, IL and Jackson Creek Fellowship Church (2012) in Manhattan, IL. They feel burdened to win souls and develop devoted disciples of our Lord. Mike truly loves connecting the truth of scripture through the preaching and teaching of God’s Word.
Together, Mike and Sue are excited about what God is doing in this ministry and how He is impacting people’s lives in their community. They believe that God will build His church. They are excited about what the future holds as they faithfully follow and trust God’s leading.
