2021 don buege

Welcome to our Shepherds Mission!

My name is Don Buege, and I serve Blazing Trees as our Director of Shepherds. I am passionate about the glory of God. I love to visit families and churches sharing about God’s heart for the nations and leading mission trips to engage unreached people groups.

god's glory

I love to meditate on God’s glory.

When I meet with leaders, teams, and churches for prayer and discipleship, I love to speak about God’s glory in Isaiah:

  • Our Father is a canopy of glory covering, protecting, and sustaining us. (Isaiah 4)
  • Our Father is a Refuge in difficult seasons and a Shelter in pain and suffering. (Isaiah 25)
  • Jesus Messiah is our Master of Sorrows who rescues us from death. (Isaiah 53)
  • God’s Holy Spirit is Heaven’s Anointing upon us to proclaim freedom and deliver captives. (Isaiah 61)

Please reach out to set up a gathering around the glory of God >
