Mission support dollars make ministry happen!
Mission Support is the term used to describe that percentage of the tithes, offerings, and estate gifts your

Below are two documents to share with your congregation:
As your congregation prepares a budget for 2019, please share with us your PROPOSED mission support budget amount for the Southwestern Minnesota Synod. This will allow us to effectively plan the use of funds given by congregations to support God’s work.
