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.
The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY) is a national Church in Ethiopia proclaiming the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ. The EECMY is the largest Lutheran Church in Africa with some five million members.
Augustana District is called to stand with EECMY to support evangelists, to provide EECMY Seminarian support, and to purchase bicycles and motorcycles for evangelists to travel to communities to spread the Gospel. Three worship centers are in the process of construction, one in a very challenging Muslim community.
As a district, we are supporting 4 pastors at $125/month. These pastors are preaching the Gospel to Muslims in northern India and the harvest is great!
Would you, or your congregation like to sponsor a pastor at $125/mo., or $375/quarter?
The District sends quarterly payments of $1,500 to AIMJ, All India Masihi Jamat.
As of the end of March 2021, the 20/20 Initiative is up to $15,350. Our goal is $35,000, so if you would like to help us reach it, please send your contribution to:
