Strong Faith, Fervent Love:
Reaching Out Through a Network of Ministry

To extend its mission outreach, education and social ministry, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) works with independent Recognized Service Organizations (RSOs) that agree to ensure their programs are in harmony with the doctrine and practice of the LCMS.

RSOs are 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations that are independent of the LCMS, but operate ministry programs that foster the mission and ministry of the church. These organizations reach out in mercy and love to meet the needs of those who are suffering, poor, sick or lonely. They address human, social, economic, educational and spiritual needs.
