Campaign Stories

Through The Campaign for the ELCA, all of us – every synod, congregation and ELCA member – has the opportunity to invest in the future of this church, deepen relationships and expand ministries that serve our neighbors and communities in the United States and around the world. Together, we can achieve things on a scale and scope we could never do otherwise. On this page, you will find stories of those stepping up to lend their support, as well as stories of the impact these gifts are already making throughout our church and world.
