Shepherd’s Staff– http://ssmfi.org/
Shepherd’s Staff is a missions facilitation group. One of the areas they specialize in is handling missionary funds, which allows smaller ministries and churches to send out missionaries without being overburdened by the task of receipting, reporting, and distributing support. Below is what their website says about them:
“Shepherd’s Staff Mission Facilitators is a full-service missions ministry that exists to glorify God by assisting local churches and their members fulfill the Lord’s commission to make disciples of all nations. We are not a local church, but a tool, a “staff”, if you will, available for use by the shepherd (hence the name, Shepherd’s Staff), and/or the leadership of a local fellowship. Our God-given, biblically based vision is brought into reality through our desire and ability to serve local churches and their missionaries in one or more of the following areas: preparation, education, administration, consultation, edification.”
Jerry and Sherry Daniels– www.jerrydaniels.org
Jerry and Sherry Daniels have served as missionaries in Kenya since 1974, where they have had a part in establishing over 80 Baptist churches in multiple distinct cultural groups. An encouraging aspect about their ministry is how they have helped the local Kenyan churches establish missionary outreach programs. Churches within their ministry are multiplying and supporting pastors to reach into new areas, even across the Tanzanian border. Andrew and Abby work under and with the Daniels as they assist with Mt. Kenya Bible Baptist Fellowship. Check out their website to see more amazing things that God is doing through the Daniels.
