Impact Missionary Matching
The goal of Missionary Support Matching is for LSCC to partner with our members to support the missionaries that they financially and prayerfully support.
Complete the Member Information and Partner Information sections below. LSCC Impact Core will notify applicant within 10 days of submission whether the request for matching has been approved. Upon approval, an Impact Core Liaison will be assigned to the partner and LSCC will commit to supporting the missionary by matching up to $500 financial support for the year and to pray for their ministry work. Applications are due by November 30th.
Missionary Support Matching will match up to $500 per missionary, per household, per fiscal year.
Impact has allotted ten missionary support matchings each fiscal year, and will evaluate matching on a case by case basis beyond ten.
Financial support will be made directly from LSCC to the missionary's sending organization.
Missionary matches can be renewed every year, up to three years, and members can bring missionary for review for long-term partnership within Impact Core.
