Missions and Outreach

Jesus has called us to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. Sometimes that means going overseas in missions work, and sometimes that means going down the street to help those in need in our own community. We at Good Shepherd invite you to join us as we work together to bring the message of God’s love to our community and to the world.

Global Outreach

Mercy Mission

Under the leadership of Dr. Charly and Liz Tom, Mercy Mission serves the poor in Southern India through a Children’s Home, school, medical center, Bible college and more. We’ve been privileged to have visits from Dr. Charly, and some of our members have also been to India to see firsthand what Mercy Mission is accomplishing. What a blessing to be a part of God’s transforming work in the hearts and lives of those who so desperately need Him!
