Fall 2023 Convocation

Convocation at Shepherds Theological Seminary is always a time of celebration, but this year is special in two ways: First, founded on January 5, 2003, Shepherds is celebrating 20 years of equipping servant leaders for life and ministry with graduates impacting the world for Christ in 34 states and 22 countries. Second, Shepherds is celebrating the beginning of a new school year—with its largest incoming class to-date of 197 students along with the returning student body.

The Board of Directors, faculty, staff, students, families, and friends gathered Saturday night, August 6 not only on the Cary, NC campus, but nine other campuses as well to worship together and celebrate the beginning of this historic school year. All locations attended the event via zoom and participated in the celebration. Stephen Davey, President and Founder of Shepherds welcomed the assembly and as is his convocation tradition, encouraged everyone through the testimony and ministry of a great servant of the Lord from generations past. This year President Davey shared the rather obscure service of Oswald Chambers to Japan and Egypt who was relatively unknown until after his death and the publication of his sermon notes. The publication is still a best-selling devotional entitled “My Utmost for His Highest.”
