CALMS is a grassroots mission society closely connected to partner congregations and ministries in both the USA and Central America and dedicated to helping fulfill the Great Commission by making and growing disciples of Jesus. The District partners with CALMS to connect congregations and leaders to opportunities in Central America through annual mission trips.
The Center for US Missions provides research and training for mission work among unevangelized people in the United States. The Center is a partnership between LCMS World Missions, Concordia University Irvine, and the North American Mission Executives of the LCMS.
LINC Twin Cities is now an office of LINC international, which is based in Houston. LINC is an organization that works to restore communities to Christ. They do this by training disciples of Jesus who make disciples, plant new churches and work to transform their own communities through the power of the Gospel lived out in service to their neighbors. They are motivated by the love of God and the Great Commission of Jesus to make disciples of all nations.
