WELS Debt Eliminated!
By Tom EatonJanuary 23, 2017
The WELS “One in Christ” campaign was a special synod-wide effort to pay off our $4.7 million debt. Over the past year and a half, 572 congregations and 2,273 individuals and other organizations gave $3.1 million to WELS for this special endeavor. In addition, $1.6 million in payments were made from the synod budget. To God be the glory! We thank our Lord for this wonderful response to his good news of forgiveness and ask him to help us move forward in our ministry of training future gospel ambassadors, sharing Christ in North America and around the world, and strengthening our congregations.
