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.

Teach All Nations is Expanding

As more and more doors around the world open for the ministry of Teach All Nations, we have come to realize that there is more work for our ministry than we can possible do single-handedly.  One specific instance that brought this realization “home” was Delron’s illness just when he was scheduled to fly to Nepal to dedicate the churches and homes that the ministry had rebuild after the 2015 earthquake. Therefore, the board of directors has made a decision to officially appoint the gentleman who was willing to “pinch hit” in this case and another minister as official representatives of the ministry who will travel with -- and in some case, in place of – Delron and Peggy on their missions around the world.
  
Fred Taylor was a student under Delron and Peggy at World Harvest Bible College, has also studied at University of Southern California and at Fuller Seminary, and has completed his master’s degree at Sonoma State University.  He currently serves as an instructor at Epic Bible College.  He has ministered with Delron and Peggy in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Liberia.
  

Terence Tan is a medical doctor by profession, but travels extensively around the world ministering in the supernatural gifts of healing and deliverance.  He has ministered with Delron and Peggy in Brazil and the Turk Islands. 
  
Originally from Singapore, Terence has also lived in Europe as well as in the US – giving him the possibility of expanding Teach All Nations’ operations from multiple centers in addition to our home base in Colorado.
  

 
  
Additionally, Linda Easton – who serves on our board of directors – also represents the ministry as she travels with Delron and Peggy to such places as Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand, Hungary, and Brazil.   [Read More]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

April 2017 Meditation – Influence

At some point or another in our lives, we have all stood on the bank of a pond, dropping in pebbles and watching the ripples race across the surface of the pond in ever-increasing circles until they disappear at the far shore. I’m certain that you are as amazed as I am that a single pebble can have such far-reaching influence and make its impact known across the whole of the pond. The same thing is true in the spirit realm; each Christian’s life exerts a ripple effect -- with even tidal wave potential -- in the world around him.
 
The first area of influence we have is upon ourselves. In I Samuel chapter thirty, we read the story of the devastation that David encountered at Ziklag. With their wives and families taken captive, their city burned, and their possessions stolen, David’s men had turned against him and spoke of stoning him. Standing alone with no one left to support him, David knew only one thing to do -- he encouraged himself in the Lord. (verse 6) He recognized that the first area of influence he had was over himself. Before he could muster his men to pursue the marauders and free their kidnapped families and take back their stolen goods, he knew that he had to bolster his own faith and willpower. His son, the wise King Solomon, would later pen the words, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he,” (Proverbs 23:7) which seems to depict the truth that permeated his father’s spirit that day. Solomon lets us know that it is not what we think about, but the way we think about it that determines our destiny. On that fateful day with his future and the future of his men and the nation as a whole hanging in the balance, David had no choice but to think about his loss and that of his men; he had no choice but to think about those men who had served him loyally through thick and thin but were today threatening mutiny. However, he did have a choice concerning how he was going to think about these things. He made a choice to think about reclaiming the losses inflicted by the invaders rather than to hang his head in defeat; he made a choice to remember the extreme bravery and dedication his men had displayed over their time of service in his ranks rather than to distress himself with their present threats. As the Apostle Paul would note in the New Testament some one thousand years later, he chose to think on things that were of a good report. (Philippians 4:8) He determined to have a positive influence over himself -- the first circle over which he held sway.  [Read More]
