Global Mission nurtures the ELCA’s world engagement through the theology and practice of accompaniment by walking together with our global companions. Our work together has a multi-faceted approach to mission, from sending missionaries and personnel, to offering grants and scholarships designed to strengthen global church leadership and to support the ministries of companions.
We build on the capacity of our Lutheran companion churches in areas related to:
- Theological education
- Leadership development
- Sustainable development
- Evangelical witness
- Global advocacy
- Disaster response
- Global health
In North America, we challenge one another to become better global citizens and responsible, compassionate Christians.
To deepen and extend this work we partner with interfaith, ecumenical and independent Lutheran organizations.
We are a church that believes God is calling us into the world – together. Walking together we achieve things on a scale and scope that we could never do otherwise.
