Welcome to Teach All Nations Mission

Teach All Nations Mission (TAN) is a global evangelical educational ministry birthed from the teaching ministries of Delron and Peggy Shirley.  The name Teach All Nations Mission was chosen to carefully indicate exactly what is the heart of the Shirley's mission.  TAN's commitment is to establish a solid foundation in the national pastors and leaders so that they can help enrich the people.

The vision is Christian teaching materials (in English and the local languages) in printed form and on audio and video tape, providing scholarships to Christian colleges and Bible schools for promising students, assisting in establishing and building of Bible schools, and broadcasting via the internet, radio, and television.

Mission Report March 2017 – Mexico

In one of those little ironies of life, I recently found myself on two back-to-back trips to Mexico.  The first was a quick get-away vacation for my husband and me to spend a few days relaxing on the beach, snorkeling in the crystal clear waters, and shopping and dining in the quaint little village stores and restaurants.  And then eighty hours after stepping off the plane from the return trip, I was boarding another airplane headed south of the border again.  On this trip I was serving as the faculty leader for a team of ten Charis Bible College students who were headed to the central Mexico town of Querétaro for a mission trip.  Now, don’t take me wrong – it’s not that I don’t enjoy vacations, but I think that serving the Lord and seeing lives changed is much more rewarding.  In addition to the opportunity to minster to the people of Mexico, I was thrilled at the opportunity to invest in the lives of all these students who had spent countless hours in practices perfecting their dramas, children’s activities, and teachings for the mission.  In all the trips I have led over the past ten years that I have assisted with the mission trips at the Bible college, I have never heard a student say that the trip didn’t change his or her life.  Most people don’t realize the biblical knowledge, faith, and anointing that the Lord has deposited in them – and it takes a ministry opportunity like they get on these trips to bring it all to the surface.  So, now you can see why I was so excited about this second visit with our Latin American neighbors. [Read More]

 


 

March 2017 Meditation – Peculiar People for Perilous Times

Several years ago, I had to make a car trip from northern Indiana to Indianapolis in the center of the state.  As I drove down, I was listening to some teaching tapes that ended just about the time I reached the city.  When I ejected the tapes, the car radio came on to the frequency I had been listening to when I was back in the upper part of the state, only to discover that whatever station had that same frequency in Indianapolis definitely was not a Christian station.  Instead of the nice praise music I expected, I was greeted by someone bellowing out,

 

I’m on the highway to hell.

No stop signs, speed limit…

Don’t stop me.

I’m on the highway to hell.

  
Once I recuperated from the initial shock of the lyrics, I was reminded of the old saying about the world going to hell in a hand basket and remembered the joke that goes with it that this is a great time to be in the hand basket business.  Of course, the other alternative is to take affirmative action and stand in the road with a big “detour” sign.

 

The facts that someone would actually go to the trouble to write a song that boasts of the fact that he is going to hell, that a record company would be willing to record and release it, and that a radio station would be brazen enough to risk playing it on the air are true signs that we are living in perilous times.  These are the days that the Apostle Paul described when he talked about the end of the present dispensation:[Read More]
