Be Part of Our Praying Community…
Our Mission Handbook describes who we are:
Our structures for mission must reflect this dynamic interdependence: the relationship of full-time workers abroad and praying partners at home. The fellowship of praying partners may support the work of the Mission financially. They may volunteer for service, too… Most significant of all, they have pledged themselves to uphold our shared work in prayer.Handbook, ¶37
We are a wide-ranging, free association of sisters and brothers committed to common values and purposes and praying in community. People become members of this community by a simple pledge to join us in these shared values.
We are a Lutheran community committed to know Christ, pray for the advance of his Kingdom, share the gospel and ourselves with those who do not know him, and encourage Christians everywhere to live out their roles in the great commission.
That God is Glorified and All People Participate in His Kingdom
We are a community in the mission of God, numbering more than 6,000 praying members and 100 full-time workers in 20 countries around the world, focused on reaching those populations with limited or no access to the gospel.
We Are Committed to Pray…
That believers and communities of believers live out their roles in the great commission – that they pray for the advance of God’s Kingdom, particularly among the least reached, pray that God would send workers to the harvest, and participate in God’s global mission according to their calling.
That populations with limited or no access to the gospel experience the love of Christ – that they be prayed for, loved and served by those who are sent, hear the Law and Gospel, repent, receive God’s salvation, and grow in community.
That majority world partner churches are equal and respected collaborators in mission – that they share the Law and Gospel within their cultures and beyond, serve their communities, and establish ways to organize themselves within their cultures.
