Project: Scholarships and Seminary Support

There is a need for trained Lutheran pastors to reach the lost throughout Asia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This project provides scholarships for pastoral candidates to study at Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) partner seminaries and assists in the operating costs of these seminaries. In Asia, seven church bodies in different countries partner with the LCMS through eight seminaries to provide theological education for future pastors.

But so many Christians in Asia are not clear about why and how they are saved and are even uncertain if they will go to heaven or not.

Project: Mercy Center

The Mercy Center provides a spectrum of educational conferences, from personal witnessing and Christian reconciliation to family and community health and life issues.
