St. Michael’s is committed to living our purpose as servants of God who pursue His will happening in our world. One tangible way we do this is by devoting 10% of our budget to mission groups outside of our local church. Beyond this 10% commitment we also invest another 10% in support of planting new churches and the ministry of the Upper Midwest Diocese. Below is a list of individuals and organizations with which St. Michael’s partners. We aim for a balance of ministries targeting local, national, and international impact. The Missions Committee would be delighted to connect you with any ministries you wish to consider supporting personally. The Missions Committee meets monthly and reviews requests for support on an ongoing basis. To contact the Missions Committee, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
