Give Now to the Global Mission Fund

Thank you for your interest in supporting Gospel-centered work that had been carried out by LCMS World Mission prior to the 2010 Synod Convention. Delegates to that Convention approved a plan to restructure the national office in St. Louis.  

That restructuring eliminated LCMS World Mission and the Board for Mission Services, and placed outreach and evangelism work – as well as world relief, human care and other mercy efforts - under the auspices of the Office of International Mission and/or Office of National Mission.

Please consider making a gift to the Global Mission Fund, a restricted fund that supports Witness, Mercy and Life Together work around the world as our Synod vigorously makes known the love of Jesus in both word and deed. 

For more information about LCMS World Mission as it relates to the Global Mission Fund, click here.

To make a more restricted online gift to other Witness and Mercy ministries using our secure donation form, please visit, or contact Mission Advancement at 888-930-4438.

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 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
