BECOME A MISSIONARY

God’s glory is uniquely reflected through His willingness and ability to call, empower, and unify an amazingly diverse array of His followers, as they respond to His missionary call to leave everything familiar and comfortable behind in order to make Him known to all people, regardless of where they live on planet earth.

Is God calling you to the mission field? Shepherd’s Staff partners with local churches to send those who are called to share the Gospel across geographic, cultural and linguistic boundaries; reaching the unreached with the love of Jesus Christ.

Are you a current Shepherd’s Staff missionary?

BENEFITS OF BEING SENT

THROUGH SHEPHERD'S STAFF

Our Vision & Practices

To facilitate churches and their missionaries to fulfill THEIR vision, not ours.

The Missionary & their Home Church Determine

  • Where they will serve
  • How much personal support will need to be raised
  • What their ministry will be on the mission field
  • When they will depart for the mission field
  • How often they will take furloughs, and the length of those furloughs
  • What success will look like
  • When they should no longer serve on the foreign field

Financial Support

We receive and disburse support funds for missionaries in compliance with the applicable IRS guidelines.

Group Health Plan and Retirement Plan Benefits

Our affordable Group Medical Plan provides world-wide coverage and includes emergency medical evacuation. Our 403b Retirement Plan provides missionaries access to a preferred method for retirement savings.
