Shepherd’s Voice Magazine works with other independent or non-denominational ministries where synergies can be found in serving God and His people. These ministries contribute articles to the magazine and share each other’s experiences in manner of mutual support. Feel free to click on the images to the right or links below to visit their websites to review relevant material or listen to recorded sermons to specific topics that may be of interest to you. Other links to congregations involved in this work can be found on the links page.
Golden Sheaves (www.goldensheaves.org) is home to an extensive collection of articles and booklets including study papers written primarily by Rich Traver and other selected authors. The website maintains its quest and motto for “Gleaning Topics of Interest and Relevance to God’s Called and True Saints / Expounding upon the Faith Once Delivered“, with the mindset of serving the saints of God.The principal author has maintained an attentive association with the Church of God since 1962, with a fundamentalist Baptist background prior to that. While no claim is made as to absolute correctness in all matters, the intent is to challenge each reader to ‘search the scriptures’ in support of whatever persuasion they regard as appropriate.
Shepherd’s Voice Magazine is a production of the Chicagoland Church of God (www.chicagolandcog.org). In 2010, the congregation saw the need for a type of publication that would broadly share material that would serve the Sabbath Keeping/Holy Day observing community of believers without corporate influences. The group also felt that the overuse of speculative prophecy scenarios regarding end-time events in other publications was something that they also wished to avoid. With that in their hearts, the congregation started work on the project which lead to the creation of the magazine. In 2011, Servants’ News, another independent publication in print since 1995, merged with SVM effectively growing the magazine distribution substantially.
