Local Mission, a department of the LCA
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 priorities in the LCA Our Direction 2018-2024.
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
in 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.
Under the oversight of the Council for Local Mission we are
organised as mission ‘departments’, each of which is supported
by a mission-focused committee:
- Care Ministries
- Cross-Cultural Ministry
- Grow Ministries (Child, Youth & Family Ministry)
- Lutheran Media
- New & Renewing Churches
