More than 20 years ago, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and two of its districts agreed to raise mission awareness in local congregations and help people share Jesus with the world.

Today, thousands of “not normal” people make the Synod’s Witness, Mercy and Life Together work possible through prayers, volunteer service and very personal gifts.

This is the story of Mission Central, a special place with special people in the hills of western Iowa. It is the story of God’s very own “not normal” people doing “not normal” things to personally share Jesus with others through LCMS missionaries and mission projects around the world.
