For over 25 years Dave and Barb Anderson have had a deep concern for hurting professional church workers (pastors, teachers, missionaries) and their spouses. The Andersons and colleagues of theirs have given birth to Shepherd's Canyon Retreat, a ministry which provides burned-out pastors and other church workers with 8-day counseling retreats. Someone has said that the "church is the only army which shoots the wounded". Dave and Barb and their Shepherd's Canyon Retreat counselors believe that it is time to help heal these wounded shepherds. The Dave & Roger concert offering will benefit this ministry. Please visit

Pray that God will touch the hearts of those who attend this worship concert.

NOTE: If Dave and Roger are coming to lead weekend worship services at your church rather than to present an evening worship concert, please edit the language to reflect that fact, giving worship times. Please edit out the term "evening worship concert". Thanks.
