We are a District of congregations within LCMC who are free in Christ, accountable to one another and rooted in the scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions.
God is doing amazing things through the Augustana District! In proclaiming the Gospel, we have seen the Holy Spirit grow our ministry (Multiply) by a clear focus on God’s salvation in Christ Jesus (Magnify)! Those who attended the recent AD Convention in Hutchinson, MN in April learned that Augustana’s strong leadership has led to growth – reaching out to more and more pastors, congregations, and mission partners! Strategic growth involves training and leadership events, youth retreats and meetings, staffing time, and new ideas to meet the needs of congregations. It also calls for increased support to our mission partners in India, Ethiopia and beyond, as well as more support for congregations and pastors. Also, there is hope for a young adult mission start-up, in addition to responding to congregational requests for conflict resolution. With all these mission opportunities before the Augustana District, we want to focus again on the Multiply x2 Magnify fundraising campaign. This campaign hopes to raise funds for the growth of AD’s work. Giving to M2M is beyond the regular giving to the AD. The M2M effort is to support the expanding ministries in the District. The AD’s tagline “Theology/Church/ Mission” reflects its commitment to solid Biblical theology that guides our work; to the local congregations and their work; and to reaching out around the world, as well as to youth and young adults here at home! The District Council has committed $40,000 to helping realize these goals! But this will meet only part of the need. Your generous support of the Multiply x2 Magnify campaign can help to make all these goals possible. We are so grateful for the many congregations and individuals who support the important work of the Augustana District!
Please continue to pray for the AD and the work that God is giving us. For those of you who have not donated in the past, we hope you will consider giving a financial gift to continue on this planned path. You can do so by:
Please make sure to designate if gifts are for regular giving or additional M2M gifts. In the coming months, AD ambassadors will connect with your congregation. Watch the district’s Facebook page and the Augustana District and LCMC websites for updates.

We are encouraging all AD Congregations to have an Augustana District Sunday.
On that day we ask you to take 3 minutes to share the video with your congregation.
Below is the “Promo Packet” that includes copies of the AD logo for you to use on your church’s website, Facebook page, printed materials, etc.
If you have any questions about either of these feel free to call the AD office at 320-234-8403 and Wendy will be happy to help you. The Augustana District would like to thank Dick Lennes and As We Go Ministries for the production of this video.”
