The Gospel Outreach Committee seeks, accepts, evaluates and forwards Mission Project requests for selection by the Convention Delegates for each biennium. The Committee also accepts, evaluates and approves Student Financial Aid applications each school year for students going into church work and enrolled in the Concordia Universities or seminaries. In addition, the Committee considers and forwards potential offering recipients for the Day of Prayer, Mission Walk and Convention offerings to be voted on by the Board of Directors.

God’s Gracious Gift Fund
In 1993, the LWML Kansas District received a gift from the estate of Hulda Peterman of Holyrood, KS. A special account was established and named “God’s Gracious Gift Fund.” From the time of receiving that first check, many other memorials, estate gifts, and individual donations have been contributed to “GGGF.”
Beginning in the 2016-2018 Biennium, members could designate and direct their Thrivent Choice Dollars® to the GGGF of the LWML Kansas District. GGGF grants are selected by the delegates for the amount specified to be awarded immediately following each convention.
