At Mighty Fortress, we are keenly aware that there is a huge world outside of our church doors, with many souls in desperate need of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Lord's command to "...Go and make disciples of all nations..." (Matthew 28:19-20) presents a rather daunting task for an individual congregation by themselves. Therefore, we promote the activity of Mission Central, whose responsibility is to coordinate and promote mission activities, thereby bringing the saving message of Jesus to places throughout the world where we as an individual congregation could not feasibly go.
Mission Central is a mission supporting agency of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (our sister Synod). As part of their World Mission global Gospel outreach, it has been blessed by God to be the conduit helping to raise millions of dollars every year to send and keep LCMS World Mission Missionaries in the field.
Since 2003, Mission Central has had more than 50 LCMS missionaries and their families visit (many have come several times) and has had tens of thousands of people from hundreds of congregations visit. God has indeed blessed this place to be a mission center, focusing on telling others about Jesus!
Mission Central is committed to:
- Helping you personally support missionaries!
- Assisting you personally to volunteer your time and
talents for the Lordís work.
- Reducing the overhead costs associated with your personal gift.
- Restricting your gift to a specific family or project, in order
that you have the absolute assurance that your gift of love is
going directly for its intended purpose!
Please visit the Mission Central website to learn more about the world mission activity of the LCMS, and pray that the Lord would turn many hearts to him through the efforts of these dedicated individuals. You are also invited to stop in at Mission Central in Mapleton, Iowa to meet "Missionary Gary" (Gary Theis) in person, and tour their impressive facility and mission museum.
