In a manner worthy of God

take an in-depth look at who we are and what we do

What We Do

We partner with 168 Baptist churches in Malawi and 10 Baptist churches in Mozambique to plant new churches, teach church leaders, and serve their communities with compassion.

Plant

We help indigenous church planters preach the gospel, disciple new believers, and establish churches. By assisting with strategy and materials such as bikes, Bibles, and gospel tracts, we equip church planters to reach people in remote areas, Muslims, and those devoted to witchcraft.

Teach

We train pastors and other church leaders so they can lead their churches to greater maturity. With campuses in Zomba and Ngabu, Malawi, Shepherds Academy equips both current and future pastors to serve the churches of Malawi and Mozambique, as well as pastors' wives and other members.

Serve

We aid churches in serving their communities with compassion through mobile medical clinics. At these clinics, we take physicians and medicine to remote villages with little access to basic medical care, while also ensuring that everyone who attends hears a clear presentation of the gospel.

Challenges

Poverty and lack of development make ministry in Malawi and Mozambique difficult, but we face even greater challenges from the spread of the prosperity gospel and other heresies, the growth of Islam, and the continued influence of traditional witchcraft.

Through Shepherds Academy, I have been shaped to be someone who is firmly grounded in the Scriptures. I learned to walk faithfully with the Lord daily and to impact others with my life. Because of Shepherds Academy, I am able to boldly stand for the truth and speak the gospel without fear.

Because of Shepherds Academy, I am able to boldly stand for the truth and speak the gospel without fear. I have come to understand what a true church is and how to plant Christ-honoring churches.
