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

February 2018 Meditation – The Gospel According to Tom Sawyer

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn are politically incorrect and out of vogue by today’s standards. In fact, Huck Finn is the fourth most banned books in schools today because the word “nigger” appears in it over two hundred times. However, these books are some of the great classic literature of America -- and for good reason.
In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) has Tom Sawyer come up with the most outlandish scheme for arranging an escape for his friend, the slave Jim. The story goes on for several chapters as they dig tunnels under walls that had unlocked doors that they could have easily walked through, use improvised knives to cut through barriers that they could have simply picked up and moved, teach Jim to write so he can leave messages which meant nothing to him or anyone who would read them, capture snakes and rats so the prison cell would be infested with vermin when it was originally a clean well-kept hut, make a rope ladder for an escape that was to be on level ground -- and the list goes on and on. All this was done because it wasn’t proper to do anything that wasn’t according to the books that Tom had read about escaping from prison.
What is even more humorous is that Jim was a free man the whole time. Jim’s owner, Miss Watson, had declared him free in her will. Tom knew about this but never told Jim or Huck until after they had been through his whole elaborate plan, which -- by the way -- failed! I see a lot of Tom Sawyer in the thinking of the church. It never ceases to amaze me how we will go to great lengths in order to find solutions to problems God has already solved.

Mission Report January 2018: Myanmar – Peggy Shirley

Linda Easton and I traveled to the nation of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) to hold two women’s conferences and several church meetings in the two cities of Yangon and Kalay – the first ever Christian women’s conference in their city.


We found the women of Myanmar to be very open to our ministry as we watched them readily receive impartations of the Holy Spirit with each prayer.  In fact, Linda and I remarked to each other that we felt as if we were experiencing the book of Acts right here in the twenty-first century as the Holy Spirit’s presence was so powerful.  Many times when we went to lay hands on them, the women would just collapse because the power of God was so strong.


It is said that expectancy is the breeding ground for miracles, and the women there certainly were expectant – and they did receive the miracles they were believing for.  Even before the meetings started, our host brought a relative whose arm was totally immobilized as the result of a stroke.  After we prayed for her, her arm was completely healed and she was able to raise it and move it around.  [Read More]

July 19 – 31 2018 Come with us to Kenya

Teach All Nations will be holding a leadership conference for a small group of strategically selected pastors in Kenya's capitol city of Nairobi.  This visit to Africa provides an excellent opportunity for those who would like to get a taste of mission work and to see exactly what the ministry of Teach All Nations is all about.


Since Kenya is one of the most tourist-friendly countries in Africa, the accommodations there are more comfortable than some of the other countries we work in.
