Support Luther Seminary's global presence

During the 2012 academic year a record 73 international students, representing 27 countries, have studied at Luther Seminary.

The Rev. Dr. Falres Ilomo, a visiting scholar from Tanzania, joined the campus community for the spring semester. During this time, Ilomo taught classes, presented lectures and enriched learning by bringing an international perspective to the community. The visiting scholar program and other on-campus events centered on global mission happen regularly at Luther—all thanks to the work of the Global Mission Institute and its faithful donors.

The GMI serves as a center for global awareness, hospitality and networking at Luther Seminary. It is funded entirely by gifts and grants from individuals, congregations, foundations and corporations.

Double your impact, support the GMI today

Gifts to the GMI support Luther Seminary's global presence, an important part of Luther Seminary's mission. By making a gift in support of the GMI today, you will double your impact. A donor passionate about the mission of the GMI has offered to match all gifts dollar-for-dollar until $4,000 is reached.

"In this year filled with record numbers of international students and scholars, and hosting numerous visitors and intercultural events, the necessity of the GMI's presence at Luther Seminary is clearer than ever," said Elizabeth Flomo, GMI project coordinator.

"We ask you to support the GMI's imperative role at Luther Seminary, joining us in living and learning in the intersection of global and local mission and ministry."

A gift to the GMI is an investment in its mission to foster understanding and experience of Christian life and witness throughout the world. Support global mission at Luther Seminary. Make a gift to the GMI today by going to www.luthersem.edu/gmi/giving.
