Mission Partners [U.S. Topic] http://www.lcmc.net/mission-partners/feed?topic=50 LCMC encourages congregations to partner with Mission Agencies as part of their benevolence programs. We believe that partnering with agencies, as opposed to national oversight of benevolence funding, creates a positive experience for both the congregation and the mission partner. Throughout the years, LCMC has been introduced to many organizations throughout the world that are working together to fulfill the great commission and bring the gospel to all people. This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but to be an assistance to congregations seeking new partnership. Additional partners will be added as we develop new relationships. en-us St. Peter’s Lutheran School http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/st-peter’s-lutheran-school/a809.html Tue, 13 Mar 18 00:00:00 -0600 St. Peter’s Lutheran School is currently serving the western New York, Niagara Falls area in providing nurture, outreach and quality Christian education in partnership with the communities and family in the surrounding area. We proclaim the Gospel to all, nurturing growth and relationships with Jesus Christ.

St. Peter’s Lutheran School was founded in 1844 and is a direct ministry of St. Peter’s Ev. Lutheran Church of Walmore, in Sanborn NY, an LCMC Congregation. Over 80% of our students are from non-members, with majority of them from non-church families which means our school serves as a Mission Field for the community and surrounding area. We are blessed to live in an area of diversity where we can reach out to and provide an education to children from the inner city, area suburbs, those on our local Native American Reservation, as well as the many who live in rural communities here in Western New York.

As a school, we are able to operate in a stable position because of the gifts of the St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. We offer financial aid to families who seek a Christian education for their children. Our belief is that no child should be turned away from a Christ based education due to financial constraints.

Join us in partnering together to support finical aid scholarships, transportation for children in the inner city, outreach activities to families that are non-churched. Find out more at our website below.

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch (DBGR) http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/dakota-boys-and-girls-ranch-(dbgr)/a468.html Wed, 23 Oct 13 00:00:00 -0600 Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christian residential treatment and educational center for youth and their families, a place of healing and hope unlike any you’ve known. A place where troubled kids and their families find professional care, compassionate expertise and new possibilities. A place where we look the most troubled, complex, and amazing kids in the eye, walk with them, and help them become their best selves in this world and in Christ.
 
Each day, the Ranch provides hope, care and healing for the most complicated and hurting kids on its campuses in Bismarck, Fargo, and Minot, ND. At any one time, over 90 children, ages 10-18, are at the Ranch for psychiatric residential treatment or residential child care (also known as group foster care).
 
These children have experienced severe emotional, behavioral and developmental challenges and come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and religions. They work hard, with our professional expertise and guidance, to overcome issues like conduct disorder, autism spectrum disorders, borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, chemical dependency, sexual offending; and issues related to trauma, abuse and neglect.
 
The Ranch’s compassionate and professional experts provide best in class (psychiatric) therapy and trauma-informed care. We are attentive to each child’s unique mental, physical, educational and spiritual needs. Our ministry’s success in serving children and families is attributed in great part to our Spiritual Life Program, which is not provided by secular agencies. Children attend Chapel, sing in the choir, attend Bible Studies and confirmation classes. Each year we welcome children into God’s arms through Baptism and Confirmation. Children who choose to not participate in Spiritual Life programming, become part of the Ranch Life groups and learn good citizenship, morals and how to engage with others in the community.
 
The Ranch was established in 1952 with a mission to help at-risk children and their families succeed in the name of Christ. Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Mission Partner of the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), a Recognized Service Organization of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), an Affiliated Social Ministry Organization of the Evangelical Church in America (ELCA), and a founding member of Lutheran Services in America (LSA).

Child Outreach International http://www.solapublishing.com/mission-partners/child-outreach-international/a293.html Sun, 17 Jun 12 00:00:00 -0600 Child Outreach International is a non-profit organization made up of caring Christians who have chosen to come together to make a difference in the world we live in.  We are non-denominational and work with who and where the Holy Spirit leads us to share Christ grace and promise.  Our focus in the impoverished and often remote areas that we serve in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, and the Texas border areas is to not only share our blessings, but to empower churches, schools and whole communities.  We do this by not only sharing our faith, but by helping them obtain the materials and opportunities they need to improve their lives and future, leaving Christ’s footprint wherever we serve.  Some of our current and past efforts include developing and equipping children’s ministries and several women’s sewing co-ops,  children’s feeding programs, providing needed medical supplies to clinics, nursing programs, and hospitals, digging deep wells and installing dependable water and septic systems where these services did not exist and contributed to ongoing health issues, building and repairing homes, schools, churches and the first library that serves an extended rural area of Nicaragua where books are considered a luxury. We have provided school and teaching supplies to impoverished rural schools and scholarships to a Lutheran school in Guatemala.  We also welcome partnerships with other organizations on projects we deem worthwhile and productive.

The opportunities that God has given us to serve have been endless!  Our programs are supported solely by donations from individuals, churches, and other organizations. We are governed by a dedicated Christian board of directors from various states that possess diverse skills and expertise. Affordable, mission outreach experiences for groups are also available upon request.  We also are happy to provide a speaker on the topic of a “mission mindset” or our organization.  Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.”  1 John 3:18
