Missions Unpacked: Your global connection to mission

Embark on a global mission experience and unpack how LCMS International Mission works without ever having to dig out your suitcase. Learn, sing, eat, and pray with missionaries and local church members in Africa, Asia, Eurasia, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

Dive in solo or gather a group to learn together. Whichever route you choose, watch for supplemental resources to help solidify your grasp of how the church is spreading the Gospel, planting Lutheran churches, and showing mercy on a global scale.

While there are live events scheduled, you can always work your way through the archived videos and materials. Missions Unpacked is available for adults and for kids, with another edition planned for teens this summer. Learn more at https://international.lcms.org/.

Teaching the Faith: Gain confidence to teach the faith to the next generation. These posts will equip you to better understand Scripture and best pedagogical practices.
