Good Shepherd Educational Foundation

 GSEF's Mission and Vision

“The Good Shepherd Educational Foundation creates servant-leaders through Christian-based education in order to build a peaceful society in South Sudan. Currently, the foundation raises funds for the following ministries” 

  • Good Shepherd College & Seminary provides adult theological and ESL training. In addition to more extensive coursework at their main location in Juba South Sudan, the College periodically provides short courses in two South Sudanese refugee camps in northern Uganda, teaching topics such as Church Leadership, Community Development, Bible and Theology, Pastoral Care and Counseling, Youth and Children Ministry, Conflict Resolution, and Peace and Reconciliation.


  • Good Shepherd Academy provides elementary education to children regardless of tribe. Having more than twenty tribes represented within the school has led to a profound movement of tribal reconciliation and unity within the region. In addition to education, the children receive their daily meals while in school and also learn English.  Families are invited to participate in regular prayer,which has led many to receiving Christ as Lord and Savior. Additionally, the school operates a well that provides clean potable water to the entire community.  As of 2024 there are 450 students enrolled in the Academy. 


  • The Christian Times Newspaper advocates for social development, peace, and reconciliation from a Biblical Worldview.

Mosaic Ministry partnership opportunities have included: 

  • Intentional Prayer:
    • A small group of supporters from Mosaic and across the United States meet on a zoom call with The Reverend John Chol Daau monthly.  John receives encouragement and communicates the needs for the ministry.  
  • Learning about South Sudanese Culture:
    • Kids Crossing, Mosaic's Children's Ministry prayers for the children at the Academy.  In addition, photos and letters have been to the children in South Sudan. Our kids are learning about another culture and the challenges that children face in a war torn nation.
