Psalm 23 Ministry

I have not been locked up in a cell but I have been held captive as a prisoner in my own body. No matter how impossible a situation looks, there is nothing that the Lord can't handle! If He can cure a life-threatening disease, cause me to walk and talk again and then bring me back from the brink of death, several times, He can take care of the situation you're going through! 

As a volunteer chaplain, my wife and I are visiting inmates daily in Maine jails and prisons, sharing the message that so many desperately need to hear. Christianity is all about relationships. I love to spend time with the inmates. Many just need a friend. And if they want me to be, I want to be that friend. - More about Tom - There's more about the ministry below.

About P23

The purpose of Psalm 23 Ministry is to minister and to share God's hope to the hopeless and the forgotten. That definitely describes the incarcerated. Because of what I've been through, I have a desire to tell others the the gospel message of Jesus Christ and to tell people what the Lord has done for me.  We want to bring glory and honor to Him and see His kingdom advanced. 

"I love to lead prisoners to Christ! Please pray that God gives me even more fields to harvest!"

More about Tom

This was a benefit singing for me when I was diagnosed with leukemia in 1985. I wasn't visibly affected yet so I am singing with a group called the "Men of Music" with Charles Abee (former Kingsmen Quartet) playing piano, me singing tenor, Mike McCarn singing lead, Jerome Bush (former Pine Ridge Boys) singing baritone and Jeff Whisnant (Whisnants) playing bass guitar and singing. It was recorded in Stanley, North Carolina.

The benefit was hosted by a group called The Royals with David and Vicki Harvell.  


The last song is sung by me, Jeff Whisnant and Vicki Harvell.

I thank God He allowed me to sing about Jesus! :)

Some Testimonials



Alan CarrTom Shuford is a genuine believer. He loves His Lord. Beyond that, he has a wonderful testimony of God’s grace in his life. The story of how God saved him, brought him through a time of serious illness, and of how God has greatly blessed and used him since that time is a life-changing testimony to the grace, power and glory of God.
I highly recommend to you Brother Tom Shuford. Our church has been supporting this ministry for several years, and we are thankful to be a part of what the Lord is doing through Tom.

To hear Tom’s testimony is to experience the power of the Lord’s life-altering touch. The lessons from Tom’s life, and of the grace of God at work in his life, are blessings you do not want to miss.
