“Serving the Lord” with Our Gifts:
How is the Missouri District Funded?

The work of the Missouri District has always been and will always be a group undertaking—funded by the generosity of others. Financial support for our work comes from our congregations, foundations, and individuals. Our sincerest thanks to those who so faithfully walk with us in this calling in God’s Kingdom.

As is our custom, twenty percent of the unrestricted gifts we receive are shared with Synod for international mission work and disaster relief, as well as the functions of our church body’s headquarters. Offering this double tithe is our joy as good stewards of what God has entrusted to us.

The remaining gifts are used here in Missouri—at specific mission sites, for the strengthening of Lutheran schools, and providing for the health and well-being of our church workers. These endeavors are of utmost importance to us, and we thank God for blessing this state with so many partners in ministry.

Investors are given regular updates on their investments, and this is also the case with the Missouri District. In addition to this newsletter, social media, and District website, look for the 2020 Missouri District Annual Report to be released in the coming weeks. It’s a snapshot of where we’ve been…and where God is leading us at this time. If you would like a member of the District staff or one of our board members to answer any additional questions, please contact Leah Sieveking.
