Pastors and ministry leaders in many less resourced countries are laboring in their growing churches with limited resources and little help. This reality is what makes Shepherds’ Support International so strategically important. Shepherds' Support works with multi-skilled teams to multiply the ministries of our international colleagues through spiritual encouragement, practical equipping and relational engagement.
Ministry leaders face demanding work and spiritual warfare with little time to invest in their marriages and families. We come alongside couples to provide Biblical truth, prayer support and refreshment so that they can faithfully finish the race set before them.
A solid, exegetical understanding of the Bible is at the center of leading a healthy life and fruitful ministry. We equip servant leaders through our teaching, life experiences, practical applications and modeling using a transparent and interactive teaching style.
Genuine relationships fuel mutual learning and provide an environment for ongoing growth. We engage in meaningful relationships and encourage the development of strategic networking so leaders can pass on what we learn to disciple-making disciples.
Shepherds' Support International began in the fall of 2006 and hosts training for pastoral couples serving in challenging environments. Over the past 17 years our teams of pastors and mature Christian couples have impacted thousands of leaders and the people who they serve and send throughout 28 nations.
