Ministry of Christian Giving

WELS Ministry of Christian Giving encourages congregations and individuals to offer gifts of thanks to our Savior because of his love for us. These offerings support Christ’s gospel ministry through WELS. God has blessed WELS with two years of record-breaking Congregation Mission Offerings in 2020 and 2021, and, as of this writing, 2022 is also looking to finish with strong congregational offerings. We praise our Lord and thank his people for such generosity!

The Ministry of Christian Giving partnered with Martin Luther College to present the “Equipping Christian Witnesses” campaign, which received $9.6 million to fund tuition assistance and build the Betty Kohn Fieldhouse (pictured the day of its dedication, Oct. 8, 2022). This 36,000 square foot indoor turfed facility includes batting cages, golf simulators, indoor practice fields, and more.

The Ministry of Christian Giving is currently working with Home Missions to share the 100 missions in 10 years initiative with members. This initiative seeks to plant 100 new home mission churches and enhance 75 existing ministries from 2023–2033.

In fiscal year 2022 Christian giving counselors made thousands of contacts with WELS donors and helped them arrange 190 major gifts and expectancies totaling $36.9 million. Visit to find your giving counselor and receive free, confidential assistance with offering a gift to WELS.
