Legacy Giving


Lord of Life Endowment Funds Learning Opportunities

The Lord of Life Mission Endowment funds build our capacity for ministry and provide sustainability into the future. Because of your investment, we receive a distribution on an annual basis that helps us do the Lord’s work at Lord of Life. To learn more about the potential to your own planning and the benefits to the congregation in addition to visiting our website at Lordoflifeonline.org/endowment, you might want to consider the following April webinars to highlight planning for family, ministry:

Lutheran Foundation of the Southwest will offer “The Way Forward to Legacy Generosity,” a webinar on legacy planning for family and ministry. The webinar will be offered at 2 p.m. on two Sundays – April 11 and April 18 – and at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 13 and at noon on Thursday, April 15.  Please sign up for the one that works best for you here. 

This webinar is open to all congregational members to learn more about the foundation’s comprehensive legacy planning services for family and ministry. The foundation is a partner ministry of the three ELCA synods in Texas and offers its services at no cost and no obligation.

A congregation member may say, “I like the idea of leaving a gift to my church when I pass away, but I’d like to know more about how to create a plan for family and ministry.”  The church has a dedicated ministry for just this kind of support through Lutheran Foundation of the Southwest. A gift planner is available in each synod that can guide you to clarify your goals and objectives in planning. Any congregation member can establish a robust personal legacy plan with the guidance of the synod gift planner. Those with existing plans should consider reviewing their plans to make sure they continue to meet their goals for family and ministry.

All members of ELCA congregations are invited to participate in these webinars. Those who may have additional questions or need assistance with registration are invited to contact Dr. Lizbeth Johnson, gift planner for congregations in the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod, at (713) 775.1595 or lcjohnson@lfsw.org.
