To reduce or eliminate the spiritual and economic poverty in the poorest areas of the Philippine Islands.
To provide resources to make substantial and sustainable opportunities available to bless the physical, economic, intellectual, motivational, and spiritual lives of significant numbers of the most impoverished people of the Philippines.
Shepherd’s Hill International believes that the best way to share Jesus is to be Jesus to our fellow men and women. By giving people goats and teaching them economic skills and educating them, we are showing them the love of Christ and teaching them what it means to be his follower.
However, just like Jesus and his first century followers, we also want them to know the grace and love that comes through Christ and the blessings of living in the community of believers called the church. Many of our goat and livelihood program staff are also church planters, preachers, and servant-hearted Christians. Therefore, they are able to minister to the spiritual health of the people along with the physical health of the goats and the educational and skills training needs of the people.
Shepherd's Hill owes a lot to its founding by and support among members of the non-denominational churches of Christ, but we welcome participation and partnerships with Christians from many other fellowships with the intention of helping as many people as possible to gain a sustainable livelihood and to experience the blessings of knowing Christ.
The work Shepherd's Hill does is changing a country—spiritually and economically. It is raising the vulnerable to become self-sufficient and independent, and encouraging the best and brightest not to leave the Philippines. And these newly independent people will have children that are not malnourished and are better educated.
This is the subculture which all of the Shepherd's Hill ministries are bringing to Jesus. Shepherd's Hill is bringing hope to the hopeless, as well as sharing the greatest Hope of all.
