Come celebrate with us!

Since 2006, Shepherd has been making the trek to Ventura with the goal of truly celebrating baptism. Throughout the years, we have seen thousands of people publicly declare their commitment to Christ by being baptized at the beach. All are welcome to join the celebration and participate in the church picnic and BBQ (donations welcome)!
