Meet the New LCMS Missionaries
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod invites you to join our new missionaries in their journey as they begin their service. This year's class of 38 missionaries will serve as called or appointed career missionaries or as GEO (globally engaged in outreach) missionaries who serve one- to two-year terms. As we send these missionaries out into the world, we have this reassurance from 1 John that God gave us eternal life and this life is in His Son. (1 John 5:11) This is the life-giving message that our missionaries will share with the people of all nations.
The recent Missionary Orientation held at the LCMS International Center in St. Louis, Mo., is the first major step in their missionary assignments. The two-week program consisting of in-depth education, interactive learning, worship and networking provides a solid foundation for the new missionaries as they prepare for their service. The orientation includes assignment-specific training and an introduction to the LCMS staff and structure that will support them during their international deployment.
You can be part of this story by joining our missionaries' network of support:
- Remember them in your prayers.
- Give them your financial support.
- Listen and hear their story.
This is part of koinonia — our life together. When you join our missionaries in prayer, financial support and hearing the stories of the people they have served, then you become part of that story too!
Please join us in praying for and supporting our 2013 new missionaries. We rejoice in sharing with you the opportunities God grants us to reach the nations for Christ!
