Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA was overwhelmingly approved in August 2013 by the voting members of the ELCA Churchwide Assembly. The five-year fundraising effort, the ELCA’s first comprehensive campaign, formally launched on February 1, 2014, and will end January 31, 2019.

The campaign seeks to raise $198 million in support of new and expanded churchwide ministries above and beyond those supported by your regular weekly offerings. This goal represents a 64 percent increase in designated funding for the ELCA’s existing and new ministry initiatives.

Through several major goals and priorities, the campaign seeks to:

  • Renew and begin new congregations
  • End poverty and hunger, and overcome malaria
  • Identify, train and support new leaders and engage young people in the life of this church
  • Expand the ELCA’s disability ministries
  • Grow this church’s capacity to serve globally, support ELCA missionaries and women leaders among global companion churches
