Local Outreach

Good Shepherd has a long history of sending and supporting our people all around the world. We send our best with the goal of furthering the gospel and strengthening the body of Christ.

14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? 15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!

Romans 10:14-15
