Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA

Four years ago, we launched Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA with a bold and daring goal of raising $198 million in a five-year span – a significant increase in support for existing and new ministries. Through this first-ever effort, we made a commitment to invest in the future of this church, deepen our relationships and expand ministries that serve our neighbors and communities here at home and around the globe.

Since then, with the support of many ELCA members, congregations and synods, we have accomplished so much. Read about our progress in the 2017 Campaign Report and the news release. Yet, there is more work to be done here at home and around the world. Please join us as we rally and drive toward the successful completion of this effort

Get involved!

  • Make a gift to one or more campaign ministries. A gift to Campaign “Where Needed Most” is a great way to make an impact where the need is greatest.
  • Host an event in support of this year’s annual theme – Leadership. Use the Rostered Ministers Appreciation packet, available on the campaign resources page, under the “Annual Themes” tab June 2018, as a starting point.
  • Share the campaign with your congregation, friends and family. Use the campaign video, 2017 Campaign Report, news release and other items to spread the word.
  • Contact us for questions or other ideas!


As of November 30, more than $168.7 million and multi-year commitments, as well as $44.9 million in planned gifts, has been contributed to campaign priorities. Read more about campaign progress in the 2017 Campaign Report. Thank you for your continued support!
