    Synods are 65 geographic organizations encompassing the entire United States and headed by elected Bishops called to do God’s work through the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA).

    Ambassadors are volunteers from across the nation who forward quarterly Ambassador-Grams to those on their contact lists that may be interested in Lutheran Men in Mission updates. They also potentially develop contacts within their Synod office; requesting that LMM information gets posted and stays current on synod webpages. If you would like to volunteer as an Ambassador (or find out more about the position), contact LMM Director of Communications and Networking

    Presidents are elected leaders of their respective Synodical or Congregational Lutheran Men in Mission chapters. All would welcome your questions, interest, and involvement. If you are aware of additional LMM Synod leaders that are not listed here, please forward that information to LMM Director of Communications and Networking
