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.
Articles and book excerpts from the teachings and mission adventures of Dr. Delron Shirley. Each article is always timely and thought-provoking as it uncovers insights into walking with God.

I grew up with the Carolina colloquialism of a ditty being any short, pithy saying or writing. There is one for each day of your life. As you read them, I hope they are interesting and inspiring.
Our parents are celebrating their seventieth birthdays in the next few days – Mom on May 30 and Dad on June 15. When we asked them how they would like to celebrate this milestone event, they said that they would like to use this opportunity to reach an entire nation for Jesus. Yes, that’s what they said – an entire nation! Dad then went on to explain that Every Home for Christ had just launched a new project that will take the gospel to every doorstep in the world within the next twenty years and that there had been budgets calculated for the cost for each nation. He added that the budgets for some of the smaller nations were actually relatively small – within the reach of a single family if they just had the vision to do so.
Some of you may know that our dad has been actively involved in the work of Every Home for Christ for a number of years, but most of you may not know that he was actually featured in last winter’s Every Home for Christ Magazine in an article entitled “Heroes Among Us.” With a legacy like that, we felt that it would only be fitting to further that heritage by helping him fulfill the vision of sponsoring an entire nation.
Some of you may also know a bit of our mom’s story – how her life was saved and changed by one simple piece of gospel literature. When she was on the verge of suicide, she picked up a gospel tract that someone had left with her in the hospital. After reading the message and praying the prayer at the end, she suddenly felt that life was worth living and the last forty-two years is proof positive of the power of that little printed message. With that in mind, you can understand why she is also excited about the possibility of seeing an entire nation given gospel literature that can have the same impact in their lives as well.
Commemorating their seventieth birthdays, Mom and Dad want to raise the budget necessary to reach the entire nation of Fiji. If you would like to help us honor our mom and dad by contributing to this project, please use the button below to give.
We are also excited that Dad has decided to write his autobiography – So Send I You – a Missionary Story which contains a lot of stories that we didn’t even know! He wants to send a free copy to everyone who helps make this dream of reaching the entire country of Fiji a reality.
Three grateful sons,

Monthly Mission Report June 2019
Delron and Peggy were invited to Kigali, Rwanda, to teach at the Authentic Kingdom University – a college that was recently opened through the ministry of their friend Dr. Paul Gitwaza. Delron taught for a week from his Passion for the Harvest book as part of the missions curriculum at the school. While he was busy with his classes, Peggy was teaching her Pulling Down Strongholds class to a different group of students. Delron was also privileged to preach at Zion Temple – Dr. Gitwaza’s church – in a service that was also broadcast on the ministry’s television and radio stations. His topic for the message was “Knowing God.” Peggy was also honored to lead a women’s conference at Zion Temple in which she taught from her Women for the Harvest book and encouraged the women to take their places in ministry and evangelism. When she invited those who wanted to come forward for prayer to find their place of ministry and be anointed to fulfill it, nearly two hundred women responded. This result was especially exciting since women were not allowed to take active roles in the ministry when we first visited Rwanda some fifteen years ago!
Monthly Meditation June 2019
As we’ve already learned, David’s influence changed the lives and destinies of not only his own immediate acquaintances but also left an enduring effect on generations to come. Let’s take a closer look at the circles of influence he demonstrated.
The first area of influence anyone has is upon himself. This may seem all too obvious, but we can see a dramatic example of this truth in the life of David. 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 were speaking of stoning him. Standing alone with no one left to support him, David knew of only one thing he could 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.
