Sheldon is the place, with its Community, out of which the Sheldon Hub is emerging. Sheldon is a place of hospitality and welcome, a place where those wounded in or by ministry can abide for a while as healing begins It is earthy and earthed, passionate and compassionate, loving but not fussy, quiet but generous, skilled and experienced but wearing its expertise lightly, prayerful but not noisy about God.
Offspring take on some of the characteristics of their parents and have new ones of their own. The Sheldon Hub will be anchored in real world Sheldon but not tethered too tightly - we want for it to have freedom to grow into its own personality.
The Sheldon Community are the people with the initial vision for the Sheldon Hub, and the ones bearing, birthing and and bringing it up. But just as it takes a village to raise a child, so the Sheldon Hub is only capable of reaching its full potential if it is embraced by the wider community of everyone in ministry.
