Good Shepherd Church
Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, http://www.gsumc.org is a modern, evangelical congregation located in suburban Charlotte, North Carolina.
The church currently averages over 1500 people in three Sunday worship services. Good Shepherd is known throughout the region for its innovative worship, broad outreach, and racially & ethnically diverse population.
The church’s rallying cry is Walking Together. As the people of the church walk towards Christ-likeness, they measure their progress according to five “milestones”: filling, growing, serving, loving, and inviting. The staff and leaders base all programming on the Walking Together milestones. The people of the church have found this simple, focused model to be an effective means of harnessing energy and creativity.
While modern in its approach to worship and ministry, Good Shepherd holds strongly to ancient beliefs and doctrines. We need a new, fresh logo that reflects our dynamic church.
Our target audience is international and diverse. Our community includes people from all walks of life, a range of ages and life experiences. The logo does not need to look old, or young, hip or traditional, urban or suburban - we are all of those things here!
