Home > Multi-National Mission

The multi-national ministries of the NALC work with the people of God, serving Christ in North America in their native languages.

The NALC Missions Office continues to care for these ministries by proactively and intentionally reaching out to advance Christ’s mission in these and many more communities. We thank God for the many congregations and mission districts who continue to care for these ministries and their leaders in a myriad of ways.

The gifts of these communities uplift the NALC with a fuller expression of the Body of Christ.  These communities also face unique challenges. The NALC is committed to assisting through:

Annual Training Event

The annual NALC Pastors’ Conference is a time for learning and fellowship. The conference includes keynote addresses, a meeting of the NALC Ministerium, a Holy Communion service, as well as dedicated time for connecting with other multi-national pastors and the NALC Assistant to the Bishop for Missions.


Individual Consultation

Recognizing that every ministry has its unique joys and challenges, we offer individual appointments with the NALC Assistant to the Bishop for Missions. Consultations are designed to include prayer and grounding in the Word, discussing best practices for leadership, brainstorming solutions for specific contextual challenges, addressing questions on gaining support for your ministry and mutual encouragement.

Become a Great Commission Society (GCS) partner and connect with NALC congregations and individuals looking to form relationships with local, national and global ministries.
