Global Mission

Tanzania Partnership

Since 2001, Shepherd of the Valley has enjoyed a vibrant relationship with our companion congregations in Makifu and Tungamalenga Parishes in the Iringa Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania.



Haiti Outreach

Haiti Outreach, Inc. is a non-profit based in Minnesota and Pignon, Haiti, that works with communities in Haiti on water, education and other projects that the communities initiate, help build and sustain.

Shepherd of the Valley has partnered three times with Haiti Outreach by sending groups of youth and adults to be immersed in Haitian culture, and serve in responsible ways that promote dignity. We will continue to explore other ways to support this important community development.
