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 14 years our teams of pastors and mature Christian couples have impacted thousands of leaders and the people who they serve and send throughout 27 nations.

We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part.

How Can We Feed Them All? That’s a bit of how I felt these past few weeks as we pulled into the parking lot of a large apartment complex filled with hungry and isolated people from all around the world. Oh Lord, these people need to know about you! How will our 50 bags of groceries[…]
Peace in the Storm Warm greetings and a great big Latin hug! I know that we’re being told to keep our distance, but it’s a virtual hug, so I feel like we can express it without worry. As you know, countries around the world, including ours, have been closing their borders in an effort to[…]
