what we do
Train. Teach. Encourage.
Sharing International strives to be a catalyst for broadcasters (professionals, students and lay people) to train foreign broadcast and media visionaries in station management, field research, audio editing and announcing to raise up a viable, Christian voice for the unreached around the world. Sharing is YOU using YOUR gifts to serve with THEM and THEIR gifts on the field!
It’s your life…share it today!

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
in jesus christ
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory.

In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and victorious life.
in repentance and faith
The only means of being cleansed of sin and receiving the free gift of eternal life is through repentance and faith in the precious shed blood of Jesus Christ and accepting Him as Personal Savior and Lord.
Our Operating Principles/
- We partner with domestic and indigenous Christian churches and organizations with a long-term commitment to nationals and to indigenization.
- We send short-term teams to provide media training and humanitarian aid.
- We are committed to providing opportunities to the laity to express their gifts.
- It is not our intention to establish or maintain a long-term presence or mission within the countries that we serve. However, we are committed to long-term relationships with the people that we help.
- It is our intention to pay our financial commitments in a timely manner.
- We will maintain integrity in all communication to our donors, staff, and partners.
- A Godly lifestyle will be practiced both at home and abroad.
- We will honor each other in all that we do.
- All our teams will receive orientation training prior to field experience.
- We will sow into other ministries as God provides.
Sharing International uses a wheels up, wheels down policy regarding the teams we send to the field. Our teams will pay for the round-trip airfare to the training site. We ask our host to be responsible for providing transportation, housing and meals for our team while on the field. We do not charge a fee for providing our training. A typical training seminar lasts no longer than a week.
