Financial Donations:

Dad the Family Shepherd is able reach many more Dads because of the generosity of its friends around the world who faithfully and generously support this ministry. Every donation, check large or small goes toward conference scholarships, cialis new resources for fathers, prescription and ministry expansion. Your cash, check, appreciated stock, or credit card gifts are tax-deductible. Dad the Family Shepherd (DTFS) is a non-profit corporation recognized by the federal government under the IRS code 501 (c) (3). Also, there are planned giving programs available so that you may invest in the future of fathers with your estate.

Become a Grand dad:

Over the years there have been many men who have committed themselves to the ministry of DTFS by becoming a “Grand-Dad.” These are men who believe in being a part of bringing a message of encouragement to fathers by committing to giving a gift of $25 per month for 40 months. This totals $1,000 (one “grand”) thus inducting you in the “Grand Dad” Club. This short term commitment has been a great blessing to many through the years.


At every conference there is always need for extra help to carry out the many details that it takes. There is room at most events for any man, woman, or child who would like to lend an extra hand. There is also need for volunteers, from time to time, in our Topeka office as well as to represent the ministry around the United States. If you have specific skills in areas such as office, technical, or computers, or you would just like to help where needed, give us a call. Perhaps also, you have special skills that could assist us from wherever you reside, we would love to hear from you.

Gifts in Kind:

DTFS is always in need of things such as office equipment, office supplies, computers, laptops, etc. If you are upgrading existing equipment or would like to donate something brand new, give us a call. You may also check our website from time to time to see any list of needs that may be posted. Since travel is a large expense for us, any donation of airline awards is greatly appreciated.


One of the great needs at DTFS is to enlist your prayer support. We need a Prayer Force of men and women who lift us up in prayer on a regular basis. We need those who will pray for conferences, our staff, and the dads whose lives are touched by this ministry. We need those who will pray that the hearts of the fathers will be turned to their children. If you would like to be a part of a Prayer Force, please let us know.
