We continue to connect The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s programs of mercy with our local congregations, our missionaries and our partner churches around the world.

One of the distinct joys we share as the body of Christ is our ability to work together. We don’t go off on our own. We don’t operate apart from those with whom we confess the faith.
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Office of National Mission has continually asked one main question: “How can we best serve the districts of the Synod, and with them the congregations, schools and workers of the church?” That is no small task.
In the 121 years since the LCMS sent its first missionaries to India, our church has been involved in international mission. Much has changed since then.
The LCMS, in partnership with Lutheran World Relief and with the support of the United Nations Foundation, began engaging districts, congregations and schools in the Lutheran Malaria Initiative (LMI) in fall 2011. Together as a Synod since then, we raised more than $7 million in the global fight against malaria through LMI.
Christian stewardship begins with the understanding that all we have is God’s and that “we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world” (1 Tim. 6:7 ESV).
