The purpose of the Northwestern Minnesota Synod, in this time and place, is to serve God’s mission by focusing its entire life on calling forth, raising up, forming in faith and spiritual leadership, and sending the next generations of disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. We support leaders in 232 congregations in our synod as well as our Camping and Campus Ministries who work to develop faith in the first third of life.

Mission: Our synod connections help us stir up and support one another to share Christ with others—in word and deed. 

Leadership: Leadership is critical to the renewal of Christ’s church. Our synod devotes major time and attention to calling forth, forming, supporting, and encouraging leaders for the sake of God’s mission.

Relationships: In our synod, we tend to the relationships, networks and formal structures that make up the “connective tissue” in the Body of Christ.

Together, we serve God's Mission!
