Why volunteer?

Some volunteers wish to remain active in meaningful service opportunities that further the mission of the LCMS to make known the love of Christ.

Other volunteers want to share their talents and learn new skills. Still others desire to volunteer where they can be in fellowship with friends. Volunteers enjoy camaraderie as they serve the LCMS mission.



International Center volunteers must be 18 years or older and available for primarily ongoing and episodic volunteer opportunities Monday through Friday, pending project availability. Applications are available upon request.

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
