Declaration of Commitment

Thank you for your faithful commitment and sacrificial giving year after year.  Because of your faithful stewardship, the English District-LCMS can continue to provide:

  • Grants to plant and support new mission churches.
  • Continued support of campus ministries across the District, which provide worship, Bible study, and the resources needed to care for and plant seeds of faith among students on college campuses.
  • Scholarships to students studying at the seminaries and Concordia universities.
  • Support to our partnership with the Dominican Republic Lutheran Mission (DRLM), touching the lives of others by training leaders, planting mission churches, caring for children with disabilities, and building schools.
  • Grants to encourage growth and ministry within English District schools.
  • And much, much more.

Tradition dating back to the days of the apostles has been that Christians support one another.  In II Corinthians 8:1-5, Paul writes about the Macedonian church and acknowledges their generosity which resulted from the grace God had given them.  But verse 5 is key, "They gave themselves first to the Lord, and then to us in keeping with God's will."  Our prayer is that your commitment, whatever it may be, will come after you first give yourselves to the Lord.
