God has placed us, as people and congregations, right where we are "for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14). People unaware of the salvation and abundant life God has purchased for them through Jesus Christ are living all around us. Together, as His people, we are charged with bringing His love and truth to them. To that end we are especially targeting unbelievers, men, former LC-MS, and outreach through our vocation(s) and technology in our combined and individual mission outreach. May God bless our efforts for the extension of the Gospel within our communities, throughout the District and into all the world (IDW Mission Statement).
“Mission Learners-Mission Leaders” is an opportunity for pastors and professional church workers to participate in mission experiences hosted through Iowa District West, LCMS World Missions, or related mission partners.
