NT-NL Easter Appeal Matching Gifts Offered
We have received generous lead gifts totaling $10,000 from three congregations (King of Glory, Dallas; Trinity, Fort Worth; Preston Meadow, Plano) to serve as matching funds for gifts to the Easter Appeal for the NT-NL Fund for Leaders as part of the ELCA Campaign. These dollars will match gifts given to the Fund for Leaders to help us achieve our goal of $25,000 for the Fund. There are many ways you can contribute or raise funds:
- If you haven’t designated Lenten offerings, these could be used.
- A special Easter Sunday offering opportunity.
- Bring your gifts as your Synod Assembly offering.
Thank you for being generous stewards and helping us raise up leaders for the life of the church.

Featured Resources for March
Bishop Eaton’s Leadership Initiative
The Leadership Initiative encourages all of us to seek out and inspire gifted people in our congregations and communities to consider a call to the ministry of the gospel. If you know someone who shows a gift for ministry, help mentor and foster them. Together — pastors, deacons, lay people – we can bring the word of God to the world.
On this page, you will find resources to guide discussions and offer inspiration for conversations and individual reflection on becoming a leader within the ELCA. Check back often as this page is updated with more resources and a variety of other testimonials from leaders of this church.
If you wish to find our more about being a leader in the church, please contact us.
