Supporting Global Ministries

The ELCA has deep, long-standing relationships with Lutheran churches around the world, and we are blessed to walk with these companions. Some of these relationships are with churches that have been around for many years, while others are new and fast growing.

Many of these churches are at a moment of great opportunity. They have identified a need and have discovered ways in which they can expand their ministry and outreach significantly – from building new congregations, to extending their youth outreach in urban areas, to training pastors and evangelists, to so much more – but they need your support.

Because we are a church that believes God is calling us into the world together, we know that we are able to achieve things on a scale and scope we could not do alone. As part of Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA, we have identified 13 new initiatives to grow churches in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.

Join us in God’s amazing work. Help grow the Lutheran church around the world as we support our companions in their ministry!
