“Let us all feel, dear brethren, that, though we have each one a work to do, and are personally
fitted to do it, we are not the only workers in the world. Brother, you are not the only lamp
to enlighten earth’s darkness, you are not the only sower to sow the field of the world with the good
seed, you are not the only trumpet through which God proclaims His jubilee, yours is not the only
hand by which He feeds the multitudes. You are only one member of this mystic body, one
soldier of the grand army . . . Brethren, we are not alone.”



The Spurgeon Fellowship Shepherds' Symposium is a conference uniquely designed to equip and encourage men responsible for pastoring the church of Jesus Christ. Additionally it seeks to provide a venue where lasting relationships can be built inside the "band of brothers" who labor together in the shepherd leadership of the church.

The Shepherds' Symposium is a three-day event consisting of four general sessions featuring our keynote speaker, Jared C. Wilson. In addition, it will feature break-out sessions on relevant ministry topics led by local pastors and church leaders.


Jared is the Director of Content Strategy for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Managing editor of For the Church, Midwestern's site for gospel-centered resources. Prior to joining Midwestern, Jared served as a pastor for twenty years. He is the author of several books including The Prodigal Church, The Pastor's Justification, and Gospel-Shaped Worship.
