Providing personal financial assistance for LCMS ministry leaders
What we do
Since 2015, the mission of MinistryFOCUS has been to relieve burdensome educational debt of pastors and other called workers by providing grants to pastors, Lutheran school teachers, directors of Christian outreach, and missionaries, helping church workers focus less on money and more on ministry.
This year, because of your generosity, MinistryFOCUS will award $131,000—52 grants, across 23 states. Since 2015, we have awarded 238 grants, totaling $595,000, all so that faith can be strengthened and more people can come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
It makes a difference
Who We Are
MinistryFOCUS is a volunteer non-profit Recognized Service Organization (RSO) of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod that believes that the realities of educational debt negatively and irreparably harm ministries and congregations. So, we raise money and award grants to help reduce and eliminate financial burden, allowing ministry leaders to … well, focus on ministry.
