Home > NALC Ministries

The NALC vision calls for every congregation, small or large, to have an active, intentional relationship supporting a local community ministry, one of the NALC mission congregations in North America and one global mission. There are three categories of ministries in the NALC: Ministry Partners, Recognized Ministries, Great Commission Society Ministries.

  • SON Network

    Formerly EEMN, SON Network serves people in a part of the world that is often overlooked as a mission field. We excel at reaching spiritual orphans in the unique context of former communist nations. The spiritual darkness and challenges of former and currently communist nations are uniquely different from more common, third-world missions destinations. While most mission organizations are focused on service and social ministries (building homes, digging wells, clothing and feeding the poor), this is often a means to an end to share the Gospel.Learn More

  • Saint Martin Lutheran Church (Atlanta, Georgia)

    Saint Martin Lutheran Church is a mission congregation in the metro-Atlanta area. Founded in December of 2019, they are striving to provide a church home that is firmly anchored in the bedrock foundation of Christ’s loving grace, driven by a mission to serve God’s children and firmly grounded in the traditional values clearly expressed in the Bible and not in the secular partisan political agendas of the day.Learn More

  • Rindal Lutheran Church (Viking, MN)

    Beginning as a house church, Rindal Lutheran Church is a vibrant and rapidly growing community of followers of Jesus. Served by Pastor Tim Lundeen (who is a part-time and bi-vocational pastor), this congregation grew so quickly that they outgrew their home. They felt so strongly that God had a new plan for them, even though they didn’t yet know what it was. One of their members served on the board of a cemetery where there was a church building. It had stood empty for 30 years.Learn More

The congregation serves and reaches out to low-income people in Compton, California, many of whom are Hispanic. “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
