Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. –Isaiah 1:17

History and Mission

Shepherds of Love Ministries, Incorporated, is a 501 (c) 3 organization founded over a decade ago by Teresa Rountree. Teresa was trained on how to minister to the needy by Dee and Margaret Stribling, founders of In His Name Ministries. A survivor of abuse, Teresa was destined to help people learn how to forgive through Christ’s word and her testimony. It was in this spirit, and because of the overwhelming need in the community, that Shepherds of Love Ministries was born.

Our purpose is to give encouragement to the poor in our community, by offering the Gospel of Jesus Christ, His forgiveness of sin and how He transforms lives. This is accomplished by providing emergency financial assistance for people in crisis situations, which opens the door to reach the heart of those in need.

Mission Statement

The mission of Shepherds of Love Ministries is sharing Christ, ministering to the needy in crisis, and offering hope.
