This congregation’s mission statement reads: “Bring people to salvation in Jesus Christ and disciple them in their relationship to Jesus Christ…” The congregation, located in Chicago, seeks to build the Body of Christ, first through reaching out to the Oromo people in the Chicago area, then to all people under Jesus’ command in Matthew 28, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” This will be accomplished with God’s help through regular worship, Holy Communion, confirmation study, the website, witnessing to neighbors, distributing flyers and going door to door.

Renting space, Lifestream Oromo is working with another NALC mission congregation to obtain their own worship space to allow both growing congregations a greater flexibility to have a mission outpost in the greater Chicago area. Having received NALC grant funding in the past, they are working together with their mission district dean to partner in this quickly growing mission field.

Congregation Address:
2500 W Bryn Mawr Ave
Chicago, IL 60659
