The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has been engaged in mission work in Kansas since 1861, when missionaries first reached out to German immigrants. Today, we have congregations and schools in every corner of the state, but we still have work to do.

The mission field is vast, both here and abroad.

The Kansas District Missions Office works to support everyone working in that mission field. For our congregations and church workers, we assist with coordination, collaboration opportunities, grant support and resource sharing. We also want to equip ALL of God’s people—not only church professionals—to talk with others about “the excellencies of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

If you have an idea for missions and outreach, we’d like to hear about it. Our missions webpages are intended to point you in a helpful direction, whether you’re interested in supporting mission work in Africa or reaching out to a friend or family member right here in Kansas.

Consequently, one must always preach the Gospel so that one may bring some more to become Christians. The kingdom of Christ stands in becoming, not in being.

Martin Luther

On John 10:16
