Mission Projects

Individuals and congregations can choose to partner with MALIM to support various mission projects that are being conducted within the Southeastern District.

If you desire to directly support one or more of these projects, you can donate directly to the project through our Donations page.  100% of the funds you contribute will go to the project you have chosen.

Current Opportunities:

iNeighborhood Micro Grants

Congregations are sending their members out into the neighborhood to become a blessing right where they live, work, and play.  As these members are connecting with their neighbors, they identify opportunities for formal or informal gatherings that promote fellowship, neighborliness, and opportunities to listen and to share about Jesus.  Sometimes these are around a meal, a helping event, or a neighborhood celebration.  Micro-grants help provide funds for these innovative initiatives.

Pastoral Leadership Institute's Discipleship to Missional Community

PLI’s Discipleship to Missional Community incorporates collegial learning with coaching that produces ongoing encouragement and accountability.  Additionally, PLI’s D2MC features key staff or lay leader involvement. When one or more key leaders are learning alongside their pastor and spouse, the journey gets easier.

Ethnic Immigrant

Institute of Theology

The Ethnic Immigrant Institute of Theology (EIIT), located at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, offers a specialized program for men and women who want to serve immigrant and English as a Second Language (ESL) communities as pastors or deaconesses in North America.

Specific Ministry Pastor Program

The Specific Ministry Pastor (SMP) Program is a four-year state of the art distance education program that prepares men for specific pastoral ministries in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). Students receive academic training in the setting where they will continue to serve following ordination. While taking classes through Concordia Seminary, they work with local pastor-mentors who support them in the program with day-to-day guidance, encouragement, and prayer.

Faith & Work Enterprises

Faith & Work Enterprises is an innovative, holistic job readiness program helping men gain transferable workforce skills and invaluable hands-on experience, which allows them to secure meaningful work and move forward in building healthy lives and communities. The program helps men who are facing long-term unemployment, transitioning back into society from the corrections system and/or experiencing homelessness, to find jobs and experience in life in Christ.

International Missions

Mission Central is the largest supporting agency of LCMS World Mission. By partnering with Mission Central, MALIM provides the opportunity for donors to directly support missionaries with specific ties to the Southeastern District.
