The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod takes part in a variety of churchwide initiatives aimed at accomplishing our goals through working together.
Ablaze! is a global Lutheran mission movement to encourage and celebrate witnessing our faith, with the goal of reaching 100 million hearts with the Gospel by 2017.
Fan into Flame
Fan into Flame is a campaign to gather financial support for the Ablaze! movement. The campaign celebrated the close of its active phase on Reformation Day, October 31, 2011, but the fulfillment of pledged gifts from faithful, mission-minded believers will continue to bless the global Gospel work of the LCMS for up to five years. It is a critical step to fund the movement’s innovative projects and programs that share the Gospel with 100 million people.
For the Sake of the Church
Through the "For the Sake of the Church" endowment, the Concordia University System encourages an effort to significantly increase the number of future Lutheran leaders for the church and society.
Free to be Faithful
The LCMS launched an education and awareness campaign called "Religious Liberty: Free to Be Faithful" in September 2012 in response to increasing intrusions by government into the realm of the church. The campaign's main goal is to inspire LCMS rostered members and laity to take informed action to protect the freedom of religion.
Lutheran Malaria Initiative
The Lutheran Malaria Initiative is a partnership of Lutheran World Relief and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod to mobilize U.S. Lutherans in the global effort to eliminate malaria deaths in Africa by 2015.
