Gift of Shepherding

The gift of pastor/shepherd is defined as the ability to nurture, encourage, and empower others to be fully surrendered to the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives as they are being transformed into the image of Christ (Ephesians 4:11).

People who have this gift have the God-given ability to care, protect, and lead people to their ultimate and perfect pastor/shepherd — Jesus Christ.

They also need to be aware of the tendency to try to make everyone happy or to take advantage of people’s trust.
