Supporting Global MinistriesWe are a church whose unity is in Jesus Christ, who gathers us around word and water, wine and bread.
The ELCA has deep, long-standing relationships with Lutheran churches around the world. Many of them are fast growing and deeply connected to the heart of their communities. People gather with one another for worship and fellowship. They also seek justice, restoration, education and healing each day in the name of Jesus Christ.
Every year we respond to requests from our global companions for financial support to expand their ministries — to start new congregations, extend their youth outreach in urban areas, and train pastors and evangelists. Together, we achieve these things on a scale and scope we could never do alone. Your gifts and prayers connect you to a companion church in another country and with other faithful, caring Lutherans doing God’s work in the world.
Please join us in God’s amazing work. Help grow the Lutheran church around the world:
