Lutheran Hour Ministries aims to energize, equip, and engage laity for outreach. For more than 100 years, LHM has equipped churches and laypeople with the resources needed to share the love of Jesus Christ with their communities.

We know Christians are passionate about sharing the Gospel and understand the importance of outreach but don't always feel confident or adequately equipped for The Great Commission in Matthew 28:16-20 ESV.

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Through partnerships with congregations, we can help equip their members. In order to effectively facilitate those partnerships, we recruit members from the congregations to serve as LHM Ambassadors. An LHM Ambassador is a congregation member who nurtures a relationship between LHM for the purpose of sharing resources and helping their congregation use them. Having an LHM Ambassador in every LCMS congregation and beyond leads to a greater number of people impacted by the Good News of the Gospel.

Through the relationship that the Ambassador builds, he or she is able to share the tools and resources developed by LHM for outreach in the community and congregational setting.
"Ambassadors play a pivotal role in helping outreach happen at the local level by assessing the equipping needs of their congregation, encouraging participation with LHM outreach training and resources, and helping Christians develop confidence and skills for effective witness," says Jennifer Prophete, LHM's community development manager.

Being an Ambassador is easy! All you need is access to the internet, an active email address, and a love for sharing the Gospel with those around you (and encouraging others to do the same)! You simply start by checking your email for the latest trainings and Ambassador-related information.

LHM Ambassadors are also invited to a yearly Lutheran Laymen's League (LLL) event to learn about LHM resources and how to use them, and network with other individuals who are also excited about sharing their faith.

Simple ways for LHM Ambassadors to use our resources include leading Bible studies, book studies, and listening groups; keeping Project Connect booklet racks stocked; hosting LHM Sunday at your congregation; and more!

When you sign up to become an LHM Ambassador, you will receive a welcome package with some unique gifts to help keep you connected to us!

New this year, all Ambassadors now receive 20 percent off every purchase made at shopehm.org for you and your congregation. We want resources in your hands to be used to equip you to share Jesus in your congregation.

All Ambassadors will be connected to a dedicated LHM staff member to support you and help with any questions.

We praise God for your willingness to consider serving as a Lutheran Hour Ministries Ambassador! Your partnership in our mission of Gospel outreach is a great blessing to the church and to LHM. We pray that it will be a blessing to you also.

Does your congregation need an LHM Ambassador? Consider joining LHM in the mission of Gospel outreach by equipping the laity through the local congregation. Visit lhm.org/ambassador for more information and to fill out the LHM Ambassador application. We look forward to partnering with you and your congregation in Bringing Christ to the Nations - and the Nations to the Church.


2020 LLL Fall Virtual Event
On September 26, around 200 people joined together, some virtually from their homes and others at one of the five hosting locations, for the LLL Fall Virtual Event. Districts that were not able to gather that day used the recorded presentation for their conventions held at a later date. Participants joined from Alaska and California to Tennessee and Michigan.

The event featured a Spiritual Conversations in the Digital Age training session led by Rev. Dr. Jason Broge, LHM's director of design and development. An opening devotion was led by Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour, followed by a welcome message and ministry updates from LHM President and CEO Kurt Buchholz. Jennifer Prophete, LHM community development manager hosted the event, while LHM Vice President, Global Ministries, Rev. Dr. Tony Cook shared an overview of products and programs.

Attendees of the event enjoyed hearing updates about LHM as well as listening to all of the presenters. Several participants commented on the quality of the materials that were presented and one individual said they were "sharing the books by Don Everts with our Men's Bible study group. We will be using them as the basis of our Bible studies over the next several months. I'll also be sharing with other pastors and laypeople."

While many people have missed face-to-face gatherings this year, participants at the virtual LLL event enjoyed the ability to learn what is going on at LHM from their home, without having to travel to a meeting. But many can agree they look forward to next year's event.

The LLL is looking forward to using available technology to bring LHM speakers and training to every convention virtually. Virtual events will be held in the spring and fall each year allowing people around the country to enjoy many opportunities to be trained on the latest LHM resources, be grounded in scripture together, and enjoy fellowship and learning from each other. Look for more information about the March 2021 event coming soon!
