The Central/Southern Illinois Synod comprises 112 congregations doing ministry in two-thirds of Illinois and beyond. Our congregations support local ministry in their communities, and the mission support funds they forward to the synod office support ministry among our congregations and throughout the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Each year, 50% of all mission support from congregations is used by the synod office to provide pastoral ministry, nurture the mission of the church, tell the story, and support ministries with partners. Congregations are invited to share their mission support plans with the synod office annually.
Your mission support has in impact on people in this synod. Our narrative budget for 2024 tells the stories of two people who have benefited from our ministries.
