Once upon a time, not so very long ago, there was a professor who taught at a Christian university.

Digging Up the Bigger Picture
You and I are much like archaeologists when it comes to assessing the past and how it relates to the present. How?
Lutheran Hour Ministries began at the grassroots level as the Lutheran Laymen’s League, a group of 12 laypeople who came together to support the church in word and deed. What began with 12 has become a movement of tens of thousands of volunteers and supporters around the globe. In 1930, “There is a God” were the first words spoken on The Lutheran Hour® radio program broadcast over the airwaves to thousands of listeners. Today the Gospel message reaches over 51 million people on a weekly basis through ministry efforts such as Bible Correspondence Courses, Outreach Training, Bible Studies, Daily Devotions and, of course, The Lutheran Hour.
Our first Ministry Center opened its doors in the Philippines in 1940; today we are able to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to over 50 countries through our 34 ministry centers on 6 continents. With our unique missionary model of employing only indigenous staff, Lutheran Hour Ministries is able to work within the language and culture to communicate the Gospel in the context of the local region. For nearly 100 years, God has used Lutheran Hour Ministries to bring the changeless Christ to a changing world. The communication methods have shifted, but the message has remained the same.
Lutheran Hour Ministries employs local missionaries in 34 locations to develop culturally relevant ministries to reach the unchurched in more than 50 nations on 6 continents.
Every person has the opportunity to hear the Gospel in an understandable way.
New believers are connected to a faithful Christian community where they can grow in their faith and witness.
All Christians reach out in love to those who don’t yet know the Savior
