The NALC 2020 Vision

A capital campaign, in support of NALC’s 2020 Vision plan, is underway to raise $5,000,000. 2020 Vision will provide a pathway to ensure a legacy of faith today, tomorrow & forever. Good Hope’s
plan, in support of the national church’s capital campaign, is to donate $5,000 in honor of our congregation’s 95th Anniversary.
Within the next 9 years, an estimated 70% of our denomination’s pastors will retire. Three hundred new pastors and lay leaders will be needed to serve the growing demands of the NALC. One of the top priorities of Vision 2020 is to support the North American Lutheran Seminary “in developing a pipeline for those called to ordained ministry.” A very significant percentage of the $5M is dedicated to this objective.
Other priorities include the renewal of current congregations, a deepened commitment to discipleship, the expansion of global witness, the planting of new mission congregations in North America, and increased effectiveness of communication within the NALC. Within the next months, much more information will be shared about how you can help with this endeavor.
