ELCA Global Church Sponsorship

Building up God's global church — together. 

ELCA missionaries have helped establish growing churches throughout the world. As a result, we are now part of a much larger story — a global community of more than 70 million Lutherans in 79 countries. In this dynamic church, we walk with our sisters and brothers in Christ to share God’s love far and wide.

Your generous gifts support this work to build up Christ’s church by sending missionaries and volunteers, training leaders, planting new churches and growing existing ones. Yet there are always new invitations and opportunities to spread the good news. 

Through ELCA Global Church Sponsorship, you can now directly support new initiatives involving ELCA missionaries, Young Adults in Global Mission volunteers, scholarships for leaders and global ministries.

Please join us in God’s amazing work. Help grow the Lutheran church around the world:
