English District Missions


"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." -Proverbs 22:6 Daily, over 5,700 students in our sixty-seven English District Lutheran schools are having their hearts and minds trained for a life of service in response to God’s tremendous grace. Our students have the opportunity to grow intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally and most importantly spiritually sitting at the feet of our District’s teachers who so faithfully and effectively serve the Master Teacher.

Rev. Michael Brown
It was the late 1970s.  This sort of thing wasn’t all that common: a woman, in her 40s, pregnant.  She did a lot of crying.  Granted, she might have been “expecting,” but she and her husband weren’t expecting this!  Not at her age. It was unplanned. It was unconventional.  It was life changing. 

Endowment Fund

The English District Endowment Fund (EDEF) has a unique purpose in the life of our district - to empower ministry beyond what is possible through the annual unrestricted gifts from individuals and congregations. It is a commitment to provide for future ministries and to support congregations in reaching those in your church and community.

What is stewardship?

Christian Stewardship is the free and joyous activity of the child of God, and God's family, the church, in managing all of life and life's resources for God's purposes.

Every man, woman, and child should know that they are God’s stewards by His grace, live as His disciples, and manage the gifts He entrusts to them with joy and generosity—all so that God’s purposes would be accomplished and His mission enhanced.

Stewardship is managing 100% of what God has given you
