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.

Mission Report July 2018 – India

Delron and his traveling companion, John Bullock, “hit the ground running.” After arriving late Thursday night, they started Friday morning with a leadership conference for the Nepali Christian Fellowship. Conveniently, they scheduled it in the same facility where Delron and John were staying. Delron taught from his Maximum Impact book and gave each person a copy. One of the delegates at the conference testified that he had recently been in Nepal and visited the Bible college in Pokhara and found that everything is going well and that the facilities have been fixed up nicely. He also reported on the political conditions in Nepal and how they were affecting the Christians – the anti-conversion law in place, but not one person from the anti-Christian party was elected in the last election; therefore, evangelism and baptisms are continuing as we have known. The Nepali meetings went all day Friday and Saturday morning.

Saturday afternoon was the promotion for the Bible college. Since this is the first year that the school has been open in Delhi, they don’t have a graduating class – just the recognition of the ones who finished the first year of studies. In his message about destiny, Delron spelled out each of the letters: D stands for direction, E stands for endurance, S stands for success, T stands for truth, I stands for intensity, N stands for natural, and Y stands for yourself – showing how each element leads to the next. If you have direction, you can endure whatever comes your way. If you endure, you will succeed. He emphasized this point by quoting Greg Mohr’s famous line, “We win if we don’t quit.” Success is based on truth, not false dreams. At this point, he quoted Jeremiah 29:11 that God has good thoughts concerning them (thoughts that would bring them to a successful.   [Read More]

July 2018 Meditation – WE HAVEN’T GONE FAR ENOUGH

My sister and I were enjoying a “fun day” in Atlanta when we decided to have lunch at a spot from our childhoods. We knew almost exactly where this particular drive-in was located, so we headed out to find it. Unfortunately, the city of Atlanta has grown a lot in the more-than-we-care-to-admit years since we were children, and the new modern buildings in the area fooled us into thinking that we had gone too far and had reached the downtown area. So we stopped, turned around, and retraced our route. Still there was no drive-in, so we turned around again and made another attempt. Eventually, we decided that we must have miscalculated and just kept driving even though we felt that we were too close to metropolitan Atlanta. And there, much to our chagrin, was the restaurant—just a couple blocks further down the road from the place where we had turned around several times. At that point, I suggested to my sister that if we are ever looking for the place again that we will need to remember, “When you think that you’ve gone far enough, you haven’t.” Her immediate response was, “There’s a sermon there somewhere.” So here it is: Why haven’t we gone far enough?

First, we haven’t gone far enough because we have the wrong viewpoint of the material world. Jesus called it “little faith.” We have faith, but our faith is in little things—not a big God. We look to the world around us for our needs—such as food, clothing, and protection—and even our emotional, social, and psychological support. Jesus addressed this problem in two different places with identical words, but within significantly different contexts.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Matthew 6:30)

This statement comes in context of the explanation in verse twenty-four that we serve riches, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Luke 12:28)
