Make it Happen for Future Church Leaders

Dave and Cyndy Hill rejoice in their calling to support and invest in future leaders of the church. "Luther Seminary is a cornerstone of our sacred Lutheran legacy. It is the critical pipeline for our future pastoral needs," said the Hills. "The institution is important, but the students are what really matter. Their wants are small; their needs are great. We encourage everyone who is able to support these fine young people who will soon become our leaders. They need our help."

As faithful leadership donors for several years, the Hills know that their gifts have immediate impact on equipping leaders for ministry. Gifts to the Sustaining Fund provide Luther Seminary students the opportunity to learn from outstanding faculty through an innovative curriculum. They also fund scholarship support, allowing students the flexibility to accept God's call wherever that may be.

In addition, the Hills' support of the Sustaining Fund also keeps resources like WorkingPreacher.org and EntertheBible.org going strong. These free online resources reach tens of thousands of church leaders across the globe, strengthening their mission to share the good news of Christ throughout the year.

Give today and Make it Happen!

By giving a gift to Luther today, you will make your investment go further and have an even greater impact on students and leaders who are eager to follow God's call. All gifts to the Sustaining Fund will be doubled through June 30 by the Make it Happen Challenge. Your gift will be matched 1:1 by a generous donor who is dedicated to the mission of Luther Seminary and the future of the church. Make your gift today!
