Shield of Faith is concerned with reaching, teaching and retaining men, women and children for the Lord Jesus. Towards this end, SOF has built and continues to develop several ministries and departments to cater to the spiritual, physical, emotional, and psychological needs of its members and community. Our ministries are modeled after the vision and structure put forth by the General Council of the Assemblies of God. Like the General Council, Shield of Faith’s ministries are diverse and are developed to reach all people regardless of gender, race, economic standing or any other discriminating factor.
Children are a heritage from God. At Shield of Faith, we strive to provide sound biblical teaching to children ages 3-11 in a safe, fun, and Spirit-filled atmosphere. It is our desire that these children will grow in the things of God so that “when they are old, they will not depart from it.”
We believe God wants to transform people’s lives through the study and application of His Word and mobilize all who attend Sunday School.
The ultimate challenge in every generation of the church is to “make disciples.” While every culture has its obstacles, the imperative remains… win, build and send disciples–disciplined followers of Jesus Christ.
The goal of the Youth Ministry is to equip the church to make disciples of Jesus Christ. The Youth Ministry carries the three-fold philosophy of “Win, Build, Send.” Warriors for Christ are taught to win people to Jesus Christ; to build biblical life and truth; and move young people to discover the God who sends and provides in life.
Reaching girls for Christ is an important part of Shield of Faith’s ministry. Girls Ministries teaches girls the fundamental truths of the Bible drawn from the lives of godly women examples. The program includes instruction for girls in kindergarten through 12th grade.
There is also a Rainbows program for boys and girls ages 3 until the start of kindergarten.
is a ministry that motivates boys spiritually through Bible study and memorization, devotionals, and Christian role models. Boys are strengthened mentally by an advanced awards-based weekly program. Further, the boys increase their physical prowess by participation in age-specific activities and recreation. Finally, they are introduced to church, community, and nature-related activities to develop their social skills and awareness.
Women’s Ministries is an opportunity for the local church to touch the lives of women by the power of Jesus Christ through outreach, Ministry Groups, and discipleship. Through this exciting ministry, Christian women are touching the world in varied and creative ways. They are building an environment for women to mentor women—a place where women can learn, practice biblical love, and feel God’s love in a very real way.
Shield of Faith’s Men’s Ministry exists to reach, teach and release men to grow to their full potential in Christ. The goal is to equip and empower the local church to effectively reach men in and outside the church walls.

We are building relationships with our community through our schools with Backpack Kids Ministry. This ministry helps provide nutritious food for school children over the weekend.
At Shield of Faith, we have come to understand that people don’t care how much we know until they know how much we care. Since 2002, Jesus Rocks!

The mission is simple – building relationships and serving the community through practical acts of Godly love.
Our goal is to do our part in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus by supporting domestic and foreign missionaries by providing finances, prayers and encouragement with which the Message of Jesus can be shared with all peoples.
