Missions and Community Engagement


As children of God, we have been given the privilege of being His hands and feet in our neighborhoods and being His witnesses in “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” In response to the undeserved love God has shown us, we are eager to share His love through acts of mercy and words of kindness. As God blesses the relationships we build with those in our community, we are given opportunities to answer questions about our faith, witness of the hope we have in Him, and walk alongside those in whose hearts He is working. As the Spirit calls people to faith, we are privileged to nurture them in their walk of faith through our life together as God’s children.

The Nebraska District equips and encourages congregations and individuals who are looking for ways to be God’s witnesses in the places where God has put them. It also supports ministries in Nebraska that serve specific communities, such as ethnic ministries or campus ministries.

Contact Rev. Rich Boring or Kim Hofer to learn more, or visit the ministry partners listed on this page.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has produced a video on the great work done by Gary Thies and the volunteers of Mission Central. This is the story of Mission Central, a special place with special people in the hills of western Iowa. It is the story of God’s very own “not normal” people doing “not normal” things to personally share Jesus with others through LCMS missionaries and mission projects around the world.

More than 20 years ago, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and two of its districts agreed to raise mission awareness in local congregations and help people share Jesus with the world.

Today, thousands of ‘not normal’ people make the Synod’s Witness, Mercy and Life Together work possible through prayers, volunteer service and very personal gifts.
