Our Impact

It is God's mission to rescue people who have become separated from Him, restore relationships with them and renew them for holy living and service to others. His message is simple: rescue, restoration and renewal are found only in Jesus.

In a world now characterized by dizzying change, God has called the Church to join Him in His mission and challenged it to make His message of hope known in today's post-Christian culture.

At Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM), we want to be your partner in calling back the lost and hurting—back to the Church; back to forgiveness and grace; back to God and His Word.

We have made it our mission to encourage and support you as you respond to God's call to action. While you may know us because of our flagship radio ministry, The Lutheran Hour®, we invite you to take advantage of everything that Lutheran Hour Ministries offers for discipleship and outreach: evangelism training events and resources; opportunities for hands-on international outreach; resource media and materials for men's ministry; mission resources for children and schools; and much more.

Here are just a few results of how the Lord blesses LHM with opportunities to plant the Gospel seed in exciting ways around the world:

  • More than 51 million people worldwide are reached with the Gospel each week;
  • Through its North American headquarters and 34 ministry centers on six continents, LHM reaches into more than 50 countries, often bringing Christ to places where no other Christian evangelistic organizations are present;
  • Around 1 million individuals listen to The Lutheran Hour each week;
  • More than 380,000 individuals responded last year to the culturally relevant outreach efforts of LHM's International Ministry Centers;
  • More than 41,000 individuals were referred last year to local congregations internationally for spiritual growth and nurturing;
  • More than 15,000 individuals each year continue to attend church events several times following their referral from an LHM International Ministry Center;
  • Around 42,000 individuals enroll for the first time each year in Bible Correspondence Courses offered by LHM's International Ministry Centers;
  • More than 30,000 individuals have been trained to witness through MISSION U and its predecessor program, Equipping to Share;

Rescue. Restoration. Renewal: His mission for the Church; His mission for us; our message to the world. Together, by the power of God's Holy Spirit, we can live that message and spread it to our communities and beyond.
