Mission Outreach Ministry Team
The Benevolence, Evangelism, and Stewardship Ministry Team (BES) was established by Word of God Lutheran Church in the fall of 2010. The BES team separated in August 2012 to better serve their visions. The BES team is now known as the Mission Outreach Ministry (M.O.M.) team, Welcome and Evangelism (W.E.) team and Stewardship team. The M.O.M. team vision is to work with world, national and local Christian organizations that support the doctrine of Word of God Lutheran Church. We seek God’s will to give spiritual support, prayer, hands-on aid, and monetary contributions to further God’s Kingdom.
The missions outlined on the mission pages come through the M.O.M. team. Click on one of the links below to see our congregation's missional focus:

M.O.M. creates an annual budget based on 11% of the Word of God budget. Monthly giving will be allocated to 1% for hands on mission trips and 10% will be given to approved M.O.M. organizations. In order to provide visibility, M.O.M. has instituted a set of guidelines for determining our ministry efforts with our prayers, our hands, and our financial resources. M.O.M. meets at least every other month to discuss and act on recommendations from the team and church members.
Current M.O.M. Members: Christina Gerling (Chair), Fritz Apfel (Vice Chair), Stanley Fletcher (Financials), Jennifer Griffin, Sue Burnett, Morgan Prillaman, Linda Peterson-Apfel.
