All Nations Endowment
"Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matt. 28:19-20).
Crossing Cultures. Reaching the Lost.
The Cross-cultural Ministry Center (CMC) is a seminary program that specializes in forming Lutheran pastors for these two realities. They are trained to faithfully bring God's Word to those outside of the church in the increasingly multi-cultural contexts of 21st century America. Our students come from a wide variety of cultures - Hispanic, Asian, African, Native American, Caucasian, etc. Many of our students come from immigrant communities and play a crucial role in reaching out to that community. However, they often simply cannot afford a Master's degree program like the CMC.
By God's grace, the All Nations Endowment was started five years ago for CMC students just like this. With His blessing, in those five years the endowment has grown to over $1.7 million and is currently providing ongoing scholarships for almost half of our CMC students. Oh, give thanks unto the Lord! However, the need is still great. Many more would like to study to become pastors. Our goal is to reach $2.5 million so we can train even more pastors for these communities. Please consider joining us in this effort! Read more about how the All Nations Endowment got started.
