The “&” in Witness & Outreach underscores that there are two different elements to this ministry of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.  Witness is the work we have been given to do as the church scattered.

It is our collective effort through ministries, services, events and other activities as the church through which we invite and include others into Word and Sacrament ministry. Witness & Outreach are distinct, but they work together so people will know of Jesus and be gathered into His Church through us.
