Missionaries

Sponsoring an LCMS Missionary or a Mercy Worker?

When God asks, “Who will go?” you can help any of our missionaries and mercy workers answer with “Send me!”

Today, official LCMS missionaries and mercy workers are funded entirely through the designated donations of God’s people who choose to give specifically for that purpose. Through your prayers and designated financial support, you help send devoted missionaries and mercy workers out to tell others in both word and deeds the Good News about Jesus, and to strengthen our church partners in doing the same.  Learn more about providing ongoing and future resources through a generous estate or planned gift.

  • LCMS Mission Advancement (which includes Mission Central in Mapleton, Iowa) works collaboratively with the LCMS Office of International Mission to tell more people about Jesus, and is COMMITTED to:

    • Helping YOU PERSONALLY support missionaries and mercy workers. Find YOUR missionary or mercy worker below.
    • Assisting YOU PERSONALLY in volunteering your time and talents for the Lord's work.
    • Reducing the overhead costs associated with YOUR personal gifts! (Read more in Steward's Corner articles: 1, 2, 3)
    • Restricting your gift, as allowed by law and generally accepted accounting principles, to a specific family or project in order that you have the absolute assurance your gift of love is going directly to its intended purpose.

      The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

      A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

      Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
