at Shepherd's Field in Mt. Vernon, MO
|This is Shepherd's Field, a faith based park south of Mt Vernon, Missouri.
Currently there are 5 buildings; they are left to right:
Dry Goods, Stable, Chapel, Short Branch, and the Parson's House.
Where this photo was taken at it is in the parking area as you will notice the
grass gets greener about 100' towards the buildings.

Some changes have been made since this photo was taken and it's explained
below. New photo coming.
|A little something about Shepherd's Field
Shepherd's Field: Is a faith based park, since we started using the Field and Stable as a focus on our Live Nativity it was given it's
name from Shepherd's Field in Bethlehem where the Shepherd's were told of Jesus' birth by a host of angels. Then again before we
started using the area it was the pasture where our Sheep grazed.
The Roamin' Wedding Chapel: was developed to be used at off site weddings.
Do to expenses of traveling we have placed the Roamin' Chapel in the Wedding of the Woods area.
As more and more couples are looking for a beautiful setting outdoors we are developing the back part of Shepherd's Field to be one
of the greatest places in Southwest Missouri. Below are a few photo's of what to expect when you come to Shepherd's Field.
|The Roamin' Wedding Chapel.
|This is the view as you walk down the aisle.
There are 75 chairs set up and room for over 50 more.
All it needs is your decorations.
|The view from the arch.
The great thing about this area is it is in the shade from before
9:00 AM till after 6:00 PM.
|Outside Wedding at the Chapel
There have been many weddings using the chapel as a backdrop, but we failed to place a photo of how it looks setup.
The below photographs are set up for 50 guest all you need is your decorative touch to accent in your colors and theme.
|The view as you head down the front.
|View from the Chapel.
With sitting for 50 guest.
|Another area that is being developed at the moment is very exciting though
really unplanned for weddings, but you never know.
"BARN LOT BALL FIELD"
Yes, there is a Ballpark at Shepherd's Field.
As I was clearing areas for parking and other things I ended with an area
right behind the Stable that really needed to be something more than a
field. During this work our three oldest grandsons were playing baseball
and something was placed into my head to build a ballpark, at first I
laughed and thought "build it and they will come" then thinking more about
it I thought why not. The area is not that large for a regulation ballpark but it
is the right size to play "WIFFLE" ball, so that is what it has become.
If you are wondering on the name the Barn Lot it's very simple, the Barn
sits right over the right field fence in fact it use to be the Barn Lot.
Wedding at a Ballpark? Why not?
|"Wedding in the Woods"
There are 6 BIG Oak trees that come together at the top and make a canopy for the wedding area which can hold 100 guest plus.
The area is very reclusive and overlooks the pond (Nelson Lake).
It is nothing uncommon to see deer, fox, rabbits, squirrels in this area. Donna calls it tranquil I call it the woods.
There is plenty of parking.
|The parking area can handle well over 100 vehicles
|As you pull toward the back you will notice "Roamin' Chapel, to
your right is the parking area.
|In front of Roamin' Chapel you can look at the "Wedding in the
|From here you can go right to stroll around the pond or straight to
the trails which circle around to......
|North of the Pond where you have a beautiful photo area with stops
through the woods where chairs have been set.
|As you are walking by the pond and look to your right you will
notice the Roamin' Chapel settled in a wooded area.
|We are really excited about the above area and hopefully within the next month or so there will be reception area for approx 75 guest with 30 amp electric
service to run a band, DJ, about anything you would like. Water service should be coming the time the electricity is placed.
