Community Partners

Lutheran Young Adult Corps

Community Partners are congregations of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, LCMS campus ministries, Recognized Service Organizations, and community organizations where Lutheran Youth Adult Corps participants serve.

Community Partners begin the application process by talking with Lutheran Young Adult Corps staff. Corps staff work with the leadership of Community Partners to focus ideas, understand the program, and understand expectations.

Next, Community Partners complete a simple application that tells about their organization and how they would like to utitlize Corps participants.

  • Applicants provide guidance on which Corps participants might work best in their organization and under their supervision during a Corps participant’s service.

    Community Partners can ask for Corps participants to serve for 10 hours per week week up to 40 hours per week. They can choose to use participants for 10 weeks, 10 months, or both.

    Each Community Partner pays a one-time placement fee for each term. This placement fee is on a sliding scale based on the hours of service desired and their annual budget.

    For more information about the placement fee, please contact program manager Julianna Shults.

    For the 2019-20 program year, Corps participants will only be placed in St. Louis, Milwaukee, New Orleans and potentially Minneapolis/St. Paul.

    If you would like information about expanding Lutheran Young Adult Corps into your city, please email Julianna Shults

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
