Shield of Faith Charities, International is an extension of the Shield of Faith Fellowship of Churches Global Missions Department. We exist to carry out humanitarian projects around the world.

Among other works, our first key project is the Pillars of Hope Rescue Mission in Kenya (Africa). Our organization encourages the participation of volunteers who support our mission. 


The Shield of Faith Global Missions Department currently has churches in many cities within the countries and continents of  India, Europe, Fiji, Mexico, Antiqua, Africa, Central America, Pakistan, Phillipines, China, Japan, Korea and Canada.


We exist to express God's love to humanity by demonstrating the Love of God in action, by sending relief aid during natural disasters, food, bibles, funds, sewing machines, clothes, materials and whatever we can do to help others thrive and live more comfortably. 


Our team offers both practical and spiritual advice to improve their way of living, and of course knowledge of the Bible for the planting of churches. If you have a desire to travel the Mission's field and touch the lives of those abroad or would like to contribute financially please support our Mission's effort!


Our Shield of Faith Newsletter is a major component to spread apostolic truth worldwide. It also allows us to share all the wonderful things occurring in every ministry. For second just imagine what Apostle Paul would do with just one “click” in trying to reach the uttermost parts of the earth?

The Nations needs to read about and learn how great God is in your life! “Shield of Faith Bishops, Pastors, Minister’s and fellow delegates, the Nation’s won’t know your convictions if you don’t write them down so they can be shared with them.”

As the Newsletter Editor for Shield of Faith Fellowship of Churches, it is with extreme honor that I get to promote the great things our God is doing in our ministries. Various types of media forms do exist but none are solely committed to representing you monthly Internationally.

We request that you send in information regarding all new church plants, all new SOF Pastors, academic achievements, athletic accomplishments, new book writings, excerpts from your books. ​​​​​​​Let us promote you. We want good news to travel fast. Please send from your ministry accomplishments, milestones, testimonies, writings, etc, etc, to - Bless you in Jesus Name.

Sincerely His service,

Bishop Charles Dorsey

Objectives of our Fellowship Prayer Network:


  • We want every fellowship church to have a designated Prayer Leader or Leaders.

  • All prayer leaders will be contacted by me on a weekly basis through email. This email will outline prayer petitions that we will pray about as a fellowship as well as other things.

  • We want every fellowship church to have at least one thriving prayer chapter (prayer line) and focus on growing this prayer movement in your church.

  • We want to provide support and training to your intercessors if needed.

  • We want to pray together in our Prayer Revival in a spirit of unity.

  • God will manifest His glory and perform miracles, as we pray in faith.


Our Pastors & Leaders Institute has been established to serve churches around the world in the following ways:


Practical Assistance – Because we recognize that no one organization is likely to meet every need, it is our policy that our churches may be aligned with other organizations in addition to our own. It is our commitment to assure that each pastor and church has access to the information and assistance needed to make their ministry vision become reality.


Fresh Ministry Style – Shield of Faith also seeks consistently to employ ministry styles that present the unchanging truths of the Word in an always relevant and up-to-date fashion that will be appealing and effective in its current environment. 


Crossing Denominational Barriers – A key objective is to skillfully reach across denominational boundaries in the pursuit of full restoration of God’s church to the New Testament pattern. However, we are in no wise so driven by the desire for impact that we are willing to compromise the essential truths of the Word of God.


Harmony and Unity of the Body – Membership in the Shield of Faith Fellowship is open to all pastors who feel to be part after having carefully examined our “Terms of Affiliation” Document.

Men Empowered Network International, is a men's club support group designed to provide biblical counsel, life skills workshops, fun activities, outings and networking opportunities in the community for Men and young males. What does it truly mean to be a “Man Empowered” in our present world?


The word “Empowered” can be defined as: someone given the authority or power to do something. To equip or supply with an ability, to enable an individual or group. As Men of God we strive to live our lives according to biblical principles. 


We have been empowered by the Spirit of the Lord to be faithful, upright Men of integrity. We have power to access the throne of God  in  prayer,  we intercede for  others and make our request known unto God. We realize that the need of every man is to know Christ Jesus and to surrender his life to the wisdom of God’s Word. Accordingly, we  are not only  a  church-based men’s ministry, but also a community-based men’s empowerment organization that interacts with our broader community, the legal  system, city government  and other  agencies  to  impact our society in the Name of Jesus Christ.
