About Local Mission
Local Mission in the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) is about ‘growing as God’s people’ and ‘going as God’s people’ – the first two strategic priorities in the LCA Our Direction 2018–2024 document.
How we serve
Local Mission provides leadership and support to nurture a growing missional culture in the Lutheran Church of Australia and New Zealand. We promote, resource and coordinate participation in God’s mission of bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to all people. We assist individuals, families and communities to lead people to Christ and to grow people in Christ.
Local Mission supports you to reach out to people who don’t yet know God’s love and to support those who do, through the following ministries:
- Care Ministries (incorporating the Ageing)
- Cross-Cultural Ministry
- Grow Ministries (Child, Youth & Family Ministry)
- Lutheran Media
- New & Renewing Churches.
