The 2023 Local Mission appeal focuses on supporting our young people in finding their leadership potential within our church. In a recent episode of the LCANZ’s Laudio podcast, ‘Young leaders – our hope and joy’, we heard from Elsa and Joel, two young adults using their gifts in their churches.
As I write these words, I suspect I’m talking to people closer to 60 than 20, and (like me) you long to see young people return to faith. We are faced with a ‘mission’ that calls us (older ones) to cross the generational divide and inspire the next generation. So, let’s unpack this challenge.
This year’s Local Mission appeal focuses on developing our young adults in faith and leadership. Your donation will help us find and support the young adults in our midst, like Elsa and Joel, whom God is calling into service in the church.
We know that our call as Christians is to ‘go and make disciples’, but often we see being involved in mission or outreach as too daunting. However, as Pastor Rob Edwards from Gatton in Queensland says, mission doesn’t need to be complicated. It can be as easy as inviting a friend to church.
This tax time, give to a cause that reaches those in your local community who are struggling daily behind the scenes. Help Lutheran Media share a timely message of hope to someone feeling lost, heartbroken, or alone. Your donation now will help Lutheran Media reach more people on the air and online.
