Meredith is the wife of Paul Sheppard, senior pastor of Destiny Christian Fellowship. They married May 1, 1982 and are the proud parents of two adult children, Alicia and Aaron.
Meredith Sheppard is a gifted writer and speaker. In 1993 she created Wives In Touch, a bi-monthly letter of encouragement offering hope and practical advice to pastors’ wives. It is also a ministry of prayer. It is her desire to share
honestly and openly about the joys and challenges pastors’ wives experience. “And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it, or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it" (1 Corinthians 12: 26).
Meredith has written several articles for Just Between Us magazine, a Christian women’s publication. One of her articles, “Conquering Comparison,” is featured as the first chapter of the book The Comparison Trap, a compilation of writings by several Christian authors.
Meredith’s ability to understand and personalize Scripture is a gift to all who enjoy her speaking and writing. Her wisdom, warmth and candid communication style creates trust and openness wherever she ministers.
"...Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."
