LMM – Lutheran Men in Mission

SCSW Lutheran Men in Mission (LMM) Volunteer Task Force

Mission Statement:

We, the SCSW-LMM Volunteer Task Force, by God’s grace, will provide and facilitate communications to congregations about opportunities that will allow them to network, link, share and grow their men’s ministries with their brothers from other congregations of the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin.

What is the ministry of Lutheran Men in Mission (LMM)?

Lutheran Men in Mission is a men’s ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We are building a dynamic ministry addressing the needs of men of all ages. The program is clearly focused on men only, and creates an environment that is “safe” for men. The program allows men to build trusting relationships with other Christian men, and is open and non-threatening to un-churched men. For more information about LMM events, resources and ministry ideas, go to www.lutheranmen.org.

Resources

The Bold Gathering is held several times each year providing a platform for faith issues facing men. The event is provided as a one day set of presentations suitable for a gathering and as a library of recorded presentations. The presenters come from a wide variety of experiences and speak from their hearts. Many of them have provided group discussion questions. Lutheran Men in Mission invites you to use this growing library of inspirational talks to invigorate your church’s ministry to men.
