Missions

Get involved with Missions

God is on a mission in our world, and we are honored to join in. This mission is our fervent commitment to sharing the message of Jesus Christ with those not yet connected to Him so that they will know His love and learn of forgiveness, life with God now, and the promise of life with Him forever.

On our Missions Team, we focus on cross-cultural connections. We intentionally offer various steps in discipleship so that you can move and serve in whatever direction fits, with various opportunities listed below:

  • In the St. Louis area, individuals can serve with International Student Ministry, Christian Friends of New Americans, or outreach programs with Bethlehem Lutheran in north St. Louis.
  • Step out a few hours to Sedalia and work with folks at Iglesia Luterana Amigos de Cristo.
  • Individuals or families can financially and prayerfully support our missions ministry through the Giving options listed below.  Your gifts will support missionaries in Mexico, Belize, and our sister school CCLSUganda.
  • Serve internationally with short-term teams in MexicoBelize, or Uganda.
