Be a Faithful Giver

Share from God’s abundance

Faithful Giving, Luther Seminary's automatic gift transfer program, allows you to make easy and regular gifts.

The ease and flexibility to give monthly, quarterly or annually from checking, savings or credit card accounts has made the Faithful Giving program a popular option.

Many donors find that they are able to make larger gifts having a greater impact by spreading their gifts out over a number of months.

Meet Faithful Givers

Erk and KendraFor Erik Gronberg and Kendra Mohn, both 2005 Luther Seminary Master of Divinity grads, finishing seminary and getting a regular paycheck meant it was their turn to give back.

"Both of us grew up in families where giving was very important. Tough times didn't stop giving. We both knew when we had a paycheck, it was our turn," Mohn said. "One of my favorite things to do is to say 'yes' when people ask us to give."

Gronberg echoes his wife's sentiments. "I learned about giving as a child. We were taught that giving is a spiritual decision, a discipleship decision. We give to Luther because we want it to be there for those preparing to be church leaders."

The couple began to give to Luther Seminary on a monthly basis through the Faithful Giving program. Since they began the program in 2005, they have given regularly each month and periodically increase the amount of their monthly gifts.

"We don't have large pools of cash. And Luther has expenses throughout the year. So we find it's a great benefit for us to give over the course of the year," Gronberg said.

Like many donors, Gronberg and Mohn see their giving as a way of giving back for what God has given them. "This is God's abundance. We have a lot more than we could have ever imagined we would," Gronberg said.
