Shepherding The Nations

Serving In India

Ministry Focus: Training & Supporting Native Pastors

Who We Are

Shepherding the Nations is a missions organization with a passion to see people of every language, nation and culture changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As those who live in the prosperity of the West, we have the privilege of sharing our wealth of Bible knowledge, learning materials and finances to resource native leaders to shepherd their own nations.

Our Mission

To glorify God by developing a global partnership which trains and supports indigenous pastors, who will be involved in planting healthy churches that know Jesus Christ and make Him known.

Support a Pastor

Shepherding the Nations has identified pastors and church-planters who are already working in the rural areas of India. These men are gifted and called of God to preach the gospel to their own people. Unfortunately, they are not adequately equipped to shepherd their flock because of their lack of Bible knowledge and financial resources.

  • $30.00 a month will partially support a native pastor and his family already working in a rural area of India or Nepal.
  • $60.00 a month will fully support a native pastor and his family already working in a rural area of India or Nepal.
  • This pastor will also receive Bible Training through STN’s three-year training curriculum.
  • He will have the accountability of a regional director.
  • You will receive pictures of your pastor and a profile sheet that gives details about his ministry and family.
  • Your prayer and financial support are crucial to his on-going ministry in the field where God has called him.
