"Tomorrow's Teachers & Preachers" Makes an Impact

This summer, the Missouri District was excited to launch “Tomorrow’s Teachers & Preachers”—a campaign with two key purposes: build awareness of church work vocations and help alleviate student debt for those headed into ministry.

Since its debut, the campaign has been informative and inspiring. Video prayers were said for all types of church work roles and shared online (still available on the District social media channels). Articles were written about the various roles and shared throughout the state.

Congregations and schools were then encouraged to include “Tomorrow’s Teachers & Preachers” in their offerings, and individual households were presented with the same challenge. Funds collected would be added to the Missouri District Church Worker Student Aid Endowment. It’s from this funding source that the District provides scholarships to men and women from Missouri attending an LCMS university or seminary every year.

Our sincerest thanks to the many generous donors that have supported “Tomorrow’s Teachers & Preachers.” To date, more than $42,000 has been received from individuals, congregations, and schools. Praise God!

Your forward-thinking generosity is a source of encouragement to the men and women who will one day serve in our churches and schools. Thank you for walking with them and the future generations they will one day serve.
