Downloading the Shepherds' Conference
Please see "Shepherds' Conference Audio" for a full list of conference audio and corresponding notes.
It looks like all the audio and video is available from the Shepherds' Conference. All the audio is free for download, which includes the seminar sessions. The video is only $4 per download, but only covers the general sessions.
Please also note that both MP3 and standard audio CD's are available for purchase. I heard tale that DVDs are coming soon, as well, but are not currently available.
All of this can be found in "the vault" at: https://www.shepherdsfellowship.org/MediaVault.aspx .
If you want to take advantage of all of this, but did not attend the conference and do not have a Shepherds' Fellowship account: fear not. Joining is easy and free. All you need to do is go to the site to create an account, filling in some basic information. No thugs shall appear at your door, nor shall spammers invade your mailbox should you do this, I'm told to promise you (or else!).
To remind you of the fun you could be downloading, here is the schedule again:
