Pick a Ministry (or Two): You have Options.

You can update your LCMS communication preferences online or by calling 888-930-4438.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (James 1:17, ESV).

A new season brings new blessings. What a joy to count you among them! As you continue to partner in mission and ministry, we invite you to prayerfully consider a few of the many opportunities for sharing the Gospel in word and deed with others through a gift to the LCMS.
Together as Synod
Each gift to The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod can advance any of the mission and ministry priorities set by Synod's Constitution, Synod’s Board of Directors and our Synod acting in Convention.  “Together as Synod” donations are the “gifts that support all other gifts.” Contributions are wisely used by the Board of Directors to fund anything from Witness and Mercy (program) work, logistical and support systems at the International Center that coordinate program work, activities required under the Synod's Constitution and Bylaws or by state or federal law and more - wherever the opportunity to advance and carry out our mission as a Synod is greatest.

Global Mission (National and International)
Gifts and offerings to our Global Mission impact people around the world and in our own backyard through acts of Christian compassion, wherever the opportunity is greatest at the time a Global Mission gift is received. Global Mission gifts are used exclusively to support Witness (Evangelism), Mercy (Human Care) and Life Together personnel and program work at home and abroad, work carried out by the Office of International Mission and/or the Office of National Mission.

The Office of International Mission
Your gift will support the work of the Office of International Mission as it recruits, trains, sends and cares for our international missionaries, human-care workers, theological educators and military chaplains serving outside the United States. Gifts can also fund the projects and programs planned by our Synod’s international mission teams as they work with specific people groups and strengthen LCMS partner churches around the world.  Gifts are applied in the international mission field wherever the opportunity for impact is greatest at the time they are received.

The Office of National Mission
Gifts by God’s stewards for National Mission are used entirely within the borders of the United States.  They enhance the National Mission programs and supply vital Gospel-centered resources to congregations, districts, schools, Lutheran organizations, and even church workers serving on the front line of ministry. National Mission programs and resources are specific to the ministry context of each (rural/small town, urban and suburban) and designed to enhance Christ-centered worship, evangelism and outreach, Lutheran education, youth and family discipleship, campus ministry, stewardship, and human-care and disaster-relief efforts.

LCMS Joint Seminary Fund
One mission.  Two world-class seminaries.  Their purpose is to form and equip compassionate pastors, deaconesses and other leaders for the proclamation of the Gospel to a broken, sinful world. The role of the Synod’s national office through the LCMS Joint Seminary Fund is to provide additional financial support to our seminaries, while inviting and encouraging a whole-Synod, ministry-specific stewardship response for this vital work.

The Wittenberg Project

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, Concordia Publishing House and Germany’s Independent Evangelical—Lutheran Church are working together through “The Wittenberg Project.” This exciting mission and education effort takes place in the very birthplace of the Reformation.  It is designed to nurture and strengthen the faith of Christians in the region, proclaim the Gospel to non-Christians, and provide opportunities for Lutherans around the world to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Martin Luther’s impact on the proclamation of the saving Gospel of our Lord.
