Teach All Nations Mission

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. Ps 2:8

Dr. Delron & Peggy Shirley

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 the heart of Delron and Peggy’s mission is.

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, 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.

family and Ministry news

Last year, we opened our Christmas letter by saying that our family had not grown during the last year – not even a new granddog. Well, this year we have exciting news – Christopher, our middle son, covered both of those bases. Yes, we have a new granddog – Indiana Shirley (named after a nickname that Delron picked up when we lived in South Bend). But even more exciting, we have a new grandson – Sheridan Christopher Shirley born on November 19 to Christopher and Megan.

Jeremy, our youngest, is entering his third year as a commercial real estate broker in Colorado Springs and has been acknowledged with several awards including Rookie of the Year. His girlfriend, Erika, is pursuing an accelerated nursing degree program this coming fall. Yeti, the favorite granddog of the Shirley family – according to Jeremy – is enjoying his amazing Colorado life with the family.

wise men--a christmas key

The wise men seem out of place in the Gospel of Matthew. If this volume is — as most Bible students say — written for the Jewish people to read, why did Matthew include this story of gentile astrologers at the nativity? Why did he not relate to us the story of the nice Jewish shepherds who also visited the new-born messiah? On the surface, it seems totally out of line that these gentiles would play such an important role in the story of the Jewish Messiah. It is almost unthinkable that these magi — soothsayers, magicians, and astrologers — should be considered in this Jewish gospel since the Jewish faith considered such demon-inspired men as abominations to God. (Deuteronomy 18:10-14)
