The Board is charged with responsibility for all aspects of our congregation (financial, operational, legal, staff, etc.), and we commit to you to use our collective efforts to fulfill these obligations with the utmost care and diligence. The Board will also place a large emphasis on becoming true servant-leaders of our congregation. We intend to spend considerable time focusing on such strategic matters as: Is our mission and vision clearly articulated? Is our mission and vision compelling? What characteristics would be present in our congregation if the mission and vision were fully embraced? This focus will require your Board to review and consider all aspects of our congregation to determine if, strategically, we are in the best position to win people to Christ, help them grow in their relationship with Him and equip them to live lives of servant-leaders for Him.

The Board also feels strongly that we should be in prayer for our congregation. At every Board meeting we will take time to pray for our members and the needs of our congregation so please let any Board member or pastor know if you have a prayer request. It would be a true privilege for our Board to lift you up in prayer.


The Mission

“Mission gives your life purpose”
“The mission of Lutheran Church of the Master is to make Christ known to all people; aiding them to become baptized believers, equipping them to become committed disciples of Christ, and inspiring them to become Christian servant leaders in God’s Church and world.”

In practice, the Campus Pastor’s role can be viewed to include the following three areas:

The board has been continuing work on several initiatives and wish to share just a few highlights here: Our LCM call committee is continuing their search for a new campus pastor for the East Campus.  We have received and reviewed many resumes and have been through different phases of the interviewing process with candidates and we are confident God will lead us to the right candidate in his time.


June 2017

One of the Board’s directives for Church development is to focus our ongoing ministry outside the walls of our two church campuses. Getting out and reaching and serving people where they are. A central purpose for our Congregation’s existence is to “go and make disciples.” In other words, through our love and action we seek to answer the question, “who will be the heart, smile, arms and legs of our Lord to those who don’t know Him?”
