This statement describes the partnerships of the Lutheran Church of Australia between its own agencies and with parties overseas to conduct its mission and ministry within and beyond Australia.
The LCA International Mission team seeks to encourage people from all walks of life, congregations and Lutheran schools to join in God’s mission in this troubled and hurting world, with the belief that this is best done in partnership with others - Churches and people - through the work that they are already doing in their countries and with their near neighbours.
Schools can serve others in the global family through supporting the work of Australian Lutheran World Service and International Mission. These agencies provide the opportunity to uphold justice in the global community and to reach out to whole communities with the Christian faith through the provision and supporting of aid and community development.
Australian Lutheran World Service staff are passionate about developing relevant service learning programs in Lutheran Schools around Australia. Each year ALWS offers a range of services and opportunities to Lutheran schools and their teachers.
