about us...


Pastors Eric and Denise founded Shepherd's Heart Ministries, Inc. on July 11,1988. The scriptural mandate for SHM's mission and focus is Isaiah 61 (also in Luke 4:18-19) Through the power and anointing of "the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord", Eric and Denise teaches, trains, and equips the Body of Believers in Yeshua so that they can and will mature, grow in grace, and do what Jesus did - reproduce spiritually and make disciples! Their heart is to see all believers in Christ go forth in evangelism, discipleship, five-fold ministry, gifts of the Spirit, prophetic praise & worship, deliverance, healing, restoration, and much more! Shepherd's Heart Ministries believes in and promotes Body Ministry (Ephesians 4) where ALL believers become ministers of the Good News, peacefully working together in love and unity with a servant's heart for the Kingdom and Glory of God.
