Ready to Join the Journey?

Joining the Journey means clicking the button to Donate Now, sponsoring a walk, hosting a book group, or participating in any of the suggestions below. But it’s also much more than that!

It’s knowing in your gut that there has to be a better way forward for the children of our world. It’s supporting the dreams of students you may never meet who long for an education, a chance to work their way out of poverty.

It’s believing that one step at a time, one child at a time, you can make a difference in this world we all call home.

1. Good Shepherd Sunday Outreach Project

Join the Good Shepherd Academy Family by participating in our Good Shepherd Sunday Outreach Project! In Christian churches Good Shepherd Sunday occurs on the third or fourth Sunday in the Easter Season. The next Good Shepherd Sunday will be May 8, 2022.

The name derives from the gospel reading for the day, which is taken from the tenth chapter of John's Gospel. In this reading Christ is described as the Good Shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep.

Support the students of Good Shepherd Academy in Cameroon by purchasing life-changing gifts from our Academy Gift Catalog.

Take up the offering on Good Shepherd Sunday and send it to us at the address provided, along with a list of gifts purchased. Your church will receive a plaque, welcoming you to the Good Shepherd Academy Family, and lots of smiles from our GSA students!
