The Life Ministry Coordinator Program
One Person CAN Make A Difference!
What is the LMC Program?
The Life Ministry Coordinator (LMC) program envisions one or several individuals in a local congregation seeking opportunities to educate and motivate members of their own congregation for service as Christian witnesses and citizens on life and family issues.
Why the LMC program?
We have found there are many individuals who desire to educate themselves and others in their congregation about the sanctity of life issues or engage in service projects but do not have the time to develop a chartered Lutherans For Life chapter, attend monthly meetings, or find officers.
The Life Ministry Coordinator Program fills this void. The LMC can plan and coordinate pro-life activities where the development of an LFL chapter is not immediately achievable. (Becoming an LMC also offers an additional way for those who are involved in an LFL chapter to bring the pro-life message to their congregation.)
Our goal is to have at least one active Life Ministry Coordinator in every Lutheran congregation.
How does the LMC program function?
The LMC is not a chapter, nor does it replace the chapter model. LMC’s are one or more individuals in a congregation who wish to keep their fellow members informed on life issues from a Biblical perspective.
The following may help to explain the differences (and similarities):

What does an LMC do?
The LMC, along with the counsel of their pastor, elders, or other church leaders, decides how he/she will operate within the local congregation. However, some of the proposed goals of the Life Ministry Coordinator may include the following:
Learn as much as possible about the life issues of abortion, euthanasia, post-abortion healing, chastity, etc;
- Educate others about the life issues through "mission minded" not "meeting minded" activities;
- Plan Life Sunday activities or other projects to educate the local congregation about the sanctity of human life;
- Promote the local LFL chapter—if one is near—by publicizing its meetings, events, projects, or activities;
- Provide timely pro-life information to the pastor, leadership, and membership of the congregation;
- Coordinate special activities and projects in the local congregation such as forums, films, workshops, March for Life, etc.
- Work with local, state, and national LFL and/or other pro-life organizations on projects of mutual interest.
The LMC program DOES NOT replace the LFL chapter but provides another model for ministry which can work in conjunction with LFL State Federations and local LFL Chapters. We envision LMC's and nearby LFL chapters mutually supporting pro-life efforts in their congregations and communities.
