Mission Partners http://lcmc.net/mission-partners/feed LCMC encourages congregations to partner with Mission Agencies as part of their benevolence programs. We believe that partnering with agencies, as opposed to national oversight of benevolence funding, creates a positive experience for both the congregation and the mission partner. Throughout the years, LCMC has been introduced to many organizations throughout the world that are working together to fulfill the great commission and bring the gospel to all people. This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but to be an assistance to congregations seeking new partnership. Additional partners will be added as we develop new relationships. en-us Eastern European Mission Network http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/summaries.html Fri, 05 Jan 18 00:00:00 -0700 East European Missions Network is currently serving in Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Russia, and Ukraine.

Founded in 1992, following the fall of communism, EEMN is a conservative, evangelical, pan-Lutheran – but first and foremost – Christian mission organization that connects partners with indigenous Christians living in former communist and Soviet bloc nations. Our primary passion is twofold: Engaging in the Gospel with people who have never encountered the saving grace, love, and mercy of God in Christ Jesus; and connecting North American and international ministries to teach and equip a new generation of leaders committed to building authentic communities in Christ. 

Because of the 400+ year physical presence of the Lutheran Church in East Europe, Russia, and the Balkans EEMN is uniquely poised to network with the remnant of indigenous co-workers in ministry from the historical Lutheran Church. We do recognize the strength in an ecumenical witness of our life in Jesus Christ and so we also collaborate with Christians from other conservative traditions. The goal is Engaging, Reclaiming, and Transforming Every Life in Christ!

Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.

Today, Chosen People Ministries serves in sixteen countries across the globe. Our outreach programs include evangelism and discipleship, Messianic Centers and congregations, equipping the local church for Jewish evangelism, print and web publications, and benevolence work. With your help, we will continue proclaiming the Good News through Jesus the Messiah to Jewish people around the world.

International Partners http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/summaries.html Wed, 05 Oct 16 00:00:00 -0600 On July 1, the Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT) set aside three of its staff for theological education programs in the developing world. This pioneering work is called International Partners (IP). It is building on the success of ILT’s International Educational Ministries, but the work ahead is such that this separation will help ILT to focus on its particular mission and allow these staff people be dedicated solely to listening and working with Lutheran leaders in Africa and Asia and then translating that mission back to our North American partners.

Only certain churches and individuals have a vision for global mission large enough to grasp the opportunity and needs of the young churches around the globe, and we hope that is you. We also hope you can grasp the significance of what we are announcing.

In 2015 we launched international education as part of the mission of Educational Ministries, our certificate program. Beginning with South Sudan, then India, followed by Southeast Asia, ILT began to help seminaries and young national churches in developing countries to train pastors and church workers. We have been invited to work with churches in more countries in Africa and Asia and will do so once we have more individuals and churches to partner with us.

International Partners’ mission is to address growing demand for international education and connect with sponsors who envision a faithful, growing, global Lutheran church.

  • Create curriculum to train their pastors, evangelists, and church workers

  • Train and credential seminary faculty of partner international seminaries

  • Train international students currently in North America

  • Encourage collaboration between mission groups and cultivate support for partner projects

We believe the future growth of the Lutheran Church in the long term is in Africa and Asia. We invite you to partner with us in this vision.

Awakening Lives to World Missions http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/summaries.html Tue, 10 Mar 15 00:00:00 -0600 “Mobilizing & Equipping Churches for Strategic & Fruitful Global Mission Outreach”

Awakening Lives to World Missions (www.alwm.org) exists to call and equip congregations and individual Christians to actively respond to Jesus’ command to take the Gospel to the nations. (Matt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8)
ALWM can come alongside and assist local churches in discovering and advancing their unique missional calling through Biblical principles, practical experience and evangelical passion. Pastor Bill Moberly has developed an introductory seminar called “Harvest Connection” which interactively and enthusiastically teaches the basic building blocks for fruitful and personal world mission involvement.

In addition, ALWM uses a time-tested Global Outreach Process for Local Congregations.

The churches that have applied this process have realized a:

  • Significant increase in funds available for missions
  • Clearly defined plan for strategic outreach developed
  • Substantial rise in congregational involvement in missions
  • More participation in the Global Call of the Great Commission, including people called within the congregation to full-time missions.

ALWM can be your partner in mobilizing and equipping your congregation to be meaningfully, strategically, and effectively engaged in completing the Great Commission. We have and can recommend pray resources; launching your Global Mission team, or strengthening/refocusing an existing Mission team; adopting unreached people groups; holding a successful annual mission festival; finding short term mission trips or assistance in organizing a fruitful STM from your congregation or region; and more. We are developing a national Lutheran mission networking database that will roll out later in 2015!

Guyanese Outreach (GO) invites you to join with us in our Mission to Guyana South America.

GO’s mission started in 1994 when Guyana was considered poorer that Haiti. It was then necessary to address the physical needs of the people and address the spiritual needs next. We started out by sending humanitarian aid. After a few years, through prayers, we were led to changing our focus. We had given the fish now it was time to “teach how to fish.”

For the last 10 years GO’s emphasis has been (and continues to be) on education and evangelism. GO teaches a Functional Literacy Program for primary school students, adult reading classes, computer/math for children and an adult computer program for job training. GO also sends mission teams each year to Guyana to work with different churches on evangelism.

With both our actions and our love, we express the Biblical challenge to “GO therefore and teach all nations.”

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch (DBGR) http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/summaries.html Wed, 23 Oct 13 00:00:00 -0600 Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christian residential treatment and educational center for youth and their families, a place of healing and hope unlike any you’ve known. A place where troubled kids and their families find professional care, compassionate expertise and new possibilities. A place where we look the most troubled, complex, and amazing kids in the eye, walk with them, and help them become their best selves in this world and in Christ.
 
Each day, the Ranch provides hope, care and healing for the most complicated and hurting kids on its campuses in Bismarck, Fargo, and Minot, ND. At any one time, over 90 children, ages 10-18, are at the Ranch for psychiatric residential treatment or residential child care (also known as group foster care).
 
These children have experienced severe emotional, behavioral and developmental challenges and come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and religions. They work hard, with our professional expertise and guidance, to overcome issues like conduct disorder, autism spectrum disorders, borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, chemical dependency, sexual offending; and issues related to trauma, abuse and neglect.
 
The Ranch’s compassionate and professional experts provide best in class (psychiatric) therapy and trauma-informed care. We are attentive to each child’s unique mental, physical, educational and spiritual needs. Our ministry’s success in serving children and families is attributed in great part to our Spiritual Life Program, which is not provided by secular agencies. Children attend Chapel, sing in the choir, attend Bible Studies and confirmation classes. Each year we welcome children into God’s arms through Baptism and Confirmation. Children who choose to not participate in Spiritual Life programming, become part of the Ranch Life groups and learn good citizenship, morals and how to engage with others in the community.
 
The Ranch was established in 1952 with a mission to help at-risk children and their families succeed in the name of Christ. Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Mission Partner of the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), a Recognized Service Organization of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), an Affiliated Social Ministry Organization of the Evangelical Church in America (ELCA), and a founding member of Lutheran Services in America (LSA).

Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/summaries.html Wed, 15 May 13 00:00:00 -0600 Vision: To support the needs of victims of catastrophic natural disasters with a spirit of sharing God's love. 

Mission:
To demonstrate the love of Christ as we respond to natural disasters through local congregations. 

Core Value: To carry out our work with the servant attitude of Jesus who said, "I did not come to be served, but to serve" (Mathew 20:28), and "As the Father sent Me, so I send you." (John 20:21) 

According to the front page of the October 10, 2012 USA Today, natural catastrophes in the U.S. have skyrocketed from 63 in 1980 to 250 in 2010. Superstorm Sandy (October 22-31, 2012) is our most recent reminder of increasing natural disasters.

During the LCMC’s October 2012 Annual Conference, the LCMC Board of Directors approved the establishment of a Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund to provide emergency relief assistance to victims of natural disasters. St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Marion, Iowa, will administer the Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund (LDA Fund). Grants of up to $10,000 will be available for relief aid in the wake of tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, ice storms, wildfires, flooding caused by excessive rains, and similar natural disasters.

Monies are currently being collected for the implementation of this program.  Each LCMC congregation is asked to prayerfully consider being a part of this mission. Contributions of $100 to $10,000 or more will be welcomed and can be submitted by check or money order to:

Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund
c/o St. Mark’s Lutheran Church
8300 C Avenue NE
Marion, IA 52302

Details about the Fund, grant criteria, and application instructions are available here.

In summary:
  • 100% of all contributions to the LDA Fund will go toward disaster relief grants.
  • The goal of the Fund is to reach out to those impacted by disaster who otherwise would not have resources.
  • Grant decisions will be made by a committee made up of representatives from 5 contributing churches (one representative per congregation).
  • Grants will be limited to 50% of monies available at any given time, so as to not totally deplete the Fund in response to a single disaster.
  • If, in the future, the LDA Fund is no longer needed, is replaced or is not supported, a process of termination shall be initiated. This will be determined by a consensus of the current administrator and the 5 contributing church representatives. Any remaining funds on hand will be sent to the LCMC office for disbursement to their greatest need.
  • Refer to the LDA Fund Grant Criteria and Application Instructions for more details.

Friends of Madagascar Mission http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/summaries.html Thu, 20 Sep 12 00:00:00 -0600 “Friends of Madagascar Mission (FOMM)” is on the FRONT LINES OF MISSION.  This means:
  1. 100% of your gift goes towards the mission project you choose to support.  Nothing is taken out of your gift to pay for our administrative costs.  This is our guarantee! 
  2. We do not ship anything to Madagascar.  Freight costs are very expensive.  The funds raised by us are transferred to the church and they purchase the products in Madagascar.  This also helps the local economy in Madagascar.
  3. We do not own any property and we do not have a paid staff.  
  4. We transfer financial gifts quickly to the mission project site in Madagascar.  There is great financial need in Madagascar for support of mission projects.  We work to shorten the distance between the time a donor’s gift is received and the gift is transferred to the mission project. 
“Friends of Madagascar Mission” (FOMM) is all about supporting the Programs of the Malagasy Lutheran Church (FLM), (not imposing our agenda upon their mission).  This includes:
  1. Ejeda Hospital Nutrition Program: In Madagascar the patient’s family is responsible to provide the food.  Drought is frequent at this S. W. Madagascar hospital location and so families are without food.  How will a patient become well without good nutrition?  This program provides food for these families.  Many of the patients come from non Christian areas, and so this is a part of their evangelism outreach and witnessing to the Faith.
  2. Prison Ministry: In Madagascar the prisoner’s family is responsible to provide food.  This program provides, Bibles, worship services, counseling, confirmation, baptisms, medicine and rice.  This is another program with the focus on evangelism outreach and witnessing to the Faith.
  3. Evangelists and Bible Schools: The work of outreach into the villages where the Gospel has not been heard is done by evangelists. They attend a two year Bible School of the FLM.  Their annual wages is $600.00 a year.  The FLM does not have the resources to pay these evangelists.  FOMM, with FLM approval, has set a goal of supporting 25 evangelists by the end of 2012, and increasing the number each year as approved by the FLM.  Madagascar is ripe for hearing the Gospel, and the Malagasy evangelists are the answer to this need.  In addition we work to provide support for the Bible Schools.

We have provided school and teaching supplies to impoverished rural schools and scholarships to a Lutheran school in Guatemala.  We also welcome partnerships with other organizations on projects we deem worthwhile and productive.

The opportunities that God has given us to serve have been endless!  Our programs are supported solely by donations from individuals, churches, and other organizations. We are governed by a dedicated Christian board of directors from various states that possess diverse skills and expertise.

Team or Individual Short-term Missionary Opportunities


Each summer, over 500 volunteer short-term missionaries travel North to Canada for a week or two to teach First Nations children about Jesus through LAMP’s Vacation Bible School and Sports Ministry programs. Young people and adults are impacted by the ministry, too, as teams establish relationships in the community through faithful witness and Christ-like love.
 

Church Involvement

Partner churches can support LAMP prayerfully, financially, or directly by sending individuals or teams to the mission field. 


Children’s Program

LAMP encourages children to become involved in the ministry through prayer and helping to “Fuel the Mission” (providing fuel for LAMP’s planes) through our popular Sunday School or Christian Day School program.]]>
