I am the Good Shepherd, said Jesus. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. (John 10:11)

Our Good Shepherd Lutheran Congregation

Good Shepherd is a member congregation of the East District of Lutheran Church-Canada (LCC), a family (or synod) of confessing Lutheran pastors and congregations bound together by our common teaching, believing, and confessing of the historic Lutheran confession of the Christian Faith (here is a brief summary). This is by no means merely a local or even a national confession, but this faith is held and proclaimed together with other Lutheran church bodies worldwide, among which is our sister church, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). This means that you will find the confession of faith of all our sister churches to be the same as ours - the truth of God does not change! "If you abide in My Word," Jesus says, "you are truly My disciples, and you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free" (John 8:31-32). Our current pastor is the Rev. David Milette.
St Andrew's Lutheran Church, Halifax (previously Faith Lutheran Church, Dartmouth, and before that Nova Scotia Lutheran Outreach - NSLO), grew out of a preaching station started in 1999 under Good Shepherd's pastoral care, and was more permanently established at the comissioning of then Missionary-at-Large to the Maritime Provinces Rev David Maffett in June 2000, a position which he continued to serve in until May 2008. From 2008 to 2012, they were served by Pastor Milette out of Good Shepherd, and since 2012 their supervising pastor is Rev Timothy Teuscher of St Peter's Lutheran Church, Stratford Ont, and have been served by Rev Padre Paul Williams (2009-2012) and Rev Padre David Jackson (2012-present) locally. Though far-reaching, the mission of St Andrew's Lutheran Church still centers around a worshipping congregation in Halifax, NS.
Since July 2007, Good Shepherd has begun to seek out and to minister to Lutherans and those interested in the Lutheran confession of the Faith on Prince Edward Island with monthly Divine Service (usually 2nd Sunday of the month at 1pm starting in 2015), Bible Study and sometimes even with visiting vicars and pastors serving more frequently during the summer months.
Concordia Academy of GSLC -- CA of GSLC was a private elementary Christian school operated by Good Shepherd with the support of local and Canada-wide partners from 2009 to 2011. Our principal was Miss Shelaine Clasper, a teaching deacon of Lutheran Church-Canada. Having brough our congregation and our community great blessings during that time, due to unexpected circumstances Concordia Academy closed its doors in 2011.
Concordia Languages Institute -- CLI was a not-for-profit project run for the benefit of newcomers to Canada by some members of Good Shepherd with Good Shepherd's blessing and in partnership with us. It offered private language and academic enrichment classes for youth and adults to people in our community at a time when there were no other such privately offered classes. Because it was linked to Concordia Academy, it also closed its doors in 2011.
