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.


New Books from TAN

One of the significant aspects of the ministry of Teach all Nations is the publication of teaching materials to be used in the United States and around the world.  In order to keep a constant flow of new materials available, we produce several new books each year and also translate as many as possible of the existing books into the languages of the countries where we minister.


In 2017, we were blessed to be able to release a number of new books in English as well as So, You Wanna Be a Preacher in Visayan and Swahili, Finally, My Brethren in Swahili, and People Who Make a Difference in Urdu. In 2017, we were blessed to be able to release a number of new books in English as well as So, You Wanna Be a Preacher in Visayan and Swahili, Finally, My Brethren in Swahili, and People Who Make a Difference in Urdu.  Delron already has a series of three new books planned for release in 2018 plus the annual edition of Daily Ditties from Delron’s Desk.  Peggy is hoping to make her new book No Longer Bound available this year as well as to release the Portuguese version of Women for the Harvest.


We invite you to click on the bookstore link to browse through the materials that are available.   Remember that all the books that are distributed in the United States are priced so that we can give away at least one free book on the mission field for each book sold at home.  Your purchase will not only bless you and help you in your spiritual growth, it will also be a seed in the life of a pastor or Christian leader in one of the developing nations of the world.   Visit the Bookstore

Mission Report August 2018 – Brazil

“Something inside” insisted, “Follow that van”; so the desperate and lonely old man – who was, at that very moment, on his way to take his own life – pulled into the busy Rio de Janeiro traffic and tailed the minibus.  Eventually, the van pulled into the parking lot of a church, and the occupants – Peggy and her team of students from Charis Bible College – poured out.  The gentleman followed them into the sanctuary, watched as they presented a drama depicting how Jesus can set tormented and addicted people free from the powers that enslave them, listened as some of the students shared their testimonies of how Jesus had become the Answer to their sins and failures, and hung on every word as one of the young evangelists shared the gospel message of how to receive new life through Christ.  He then responded by coming forward for prayer.  When two other missionary students visited the church a couple weeks later, they found the gentleman and learned that his life had been totally revolutionized as a result of that encounter.

Meditation August 2018 – Have a Heart

We have learned that David’s key and the key we need to open the door for us to reach our world is to have a perfect heart. Of course, we’ve all heard the expression, “Have a heart,” but today let’s consider exactly what that means. To get started, let’s take a short trip to the lush tropical island of Sri Lanka, a palm-studded treasure of white sandy beaches and dense jungle dangling just off the coast of India, not far from the equator—a perfect place except for the fact that the island suffers from extreme poverty. It is into this tragic agony of human suffering that our guide Deo Miller, along with his wife Elaine, will lead us:


“When we stopped by the Sumith Feeding and Training Center, a delicious aroma filled the air as Elaine and I stepped from the van. Lunch, bought fresh every day by staff members, simmered in large kettles over propane burners. A meal for several hundred children required four to five hours of preparation time. Each vegetable simmered in a separate pot with onions, chili peppers, and curry added for taste. I smelled potatoes, leeks, carrots, and rice—the mainstay of their diet.
“Some of the younger children sat on the long benches, eating the meal with their fingers. Lunch was served at about two-thirty or three in the afternoon in the Sri Lankan custom. Children may take seconds or thirds as long as they do not waste food. A huge bowl of rice sat in the center of each plate. The curried fish, hard-boiled egg, and curried vegetables formed a circle around the rice. When finished, the children washed their own bowls and plates under the water tap and stacked them in a pile. After lunch, everyone gathered for religious training before going home for the day.
