The Endowment Fund
The Gift That Keeps on Giving
The Shepherd of the Hills' Endowment Fund was established in 2000 as a perpetual fund whose earnings are used for the good of God's people, both now and in the future.
"The funds gifted to me through the Endowment Fund provided a way through seminary. This speaks volumes to who Shepherd of the Hills is - a community that builds up leaders in the world and in our church. I'm eternally grateful for the generosity of Shepherd of the Hills." - Joel Timmons
How It Works
Gifts made to the Endowment Fund are invested, with half of each year's earnings distributed to outreach ministries as a way to show our love through giving. The other half remains in the fund and continues to grow and give for years to come.

A Cheerful Giver
Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance so that by always having enough of everything you may share abundantly in every good work.
