Mission Project Selection

Mission Project Selection

Each year a world and home mission project is selected by mail-in ballot. Projects are chosen for the ballot by the LWMS Board of Directors with input from the WELS Board for Home Missions and the WELS Board for World Missions.
  1. Ballots are mailed to member congregations in March.
  2. Every LWMS member congregation in good standing can send in a ballot. (Ballots must be postmarked by May 25.)
  3. The ballots are counted at the annual convention.
The money collected during the year and submitted to Central Office by May 25 is given to the projects selected by the voting congregations.

Mission checks are presented at the annual convention.
