On Jan. 10, 2024, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) Office of National Mission (ONM) will offer two online training sessions for LCMS congregations and districts interested in applying for a Million Dollar Life Match grant. The training sessions — one at 2 p.m. CST and one at 7 p.m. CST — will provide helpful guidance in completing the grant application process.
Deaconess Maryann Hayter, manager of grant administration for the ONM, will conduct the training. Hayter said, “We’re excited to help congregations and districts through the Million Dollar Life Match application process. I hope that many will apply for funding to expand or launch new projects focused on the beginning of life.”
The grant training is one outcome of 2023 Convention Res. 3-01, “To Encourage and Support More Fervent Teaching, Proclamation, and Efforts to Promote Culture of Life among God’s People.” Among other provisions, the resolution encouraged LCMS Life Ministry to continue its work to provide support and training materials for congregations, districts and Recognized Service Organizations.
The 2024 application window for a Million Dollar Life Match grant will open on Jan. 1, with applications due by Feb. 15. Awards will be made in May, with reports due Oct. 1.
