The Kansas District is committed to helping congregations and organizations pursue mission projects. To encourage these efforts, the District sets aside a percentage of its congregational receipts each year and makes those funds available in the form of mission grants. The grants vary in size, depending on the project, available funding and mission priorities, which in recent years have included church planting, ethnic ministry, and congregation-based efforts.
In November 2022, the Board of Directors approved awards for the following projects:
- Hispanic outreach (Wichita; Kansas City; Linn)
- Campus ministry (Lawrence; Manhattan; Wichita)
- Concordia Academy (Wichita)
- Special programs and projects (e.g., servant events; Stephen Ministry; outreach to deaf communities)
On the impact of mission grants:
“We sent 14 students to the Witness Conference in Fort Wayne, IN. The conference provided valuable witness and evangelism skills to our members. … Allowing students to attend the conference without having to cover the cost of registration and travel was a huge blessing. We were able to ensure that financial situations did not prevent any student from learning about this vital topic.”
Help Support Kansas District Missions
Kansas District mission work is funded through a variety of sources, including annual congregational contributions, special campaigns (e.g., the Reformation Offering), and direct gifts from congregations and individuals. It’s amazing to see how the Lord uses His people—His “hands on earth”—to support the advance of the Gospel.
We sincerely thank all of you who have contributed to this important work!
