Mission Partners


Gloria Dei doesn't stand by itself. We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The ELCA is divided into 65 synods (a Greek word that means "coming together"). We are part of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod, headed by Bishop Wayne Miller.

As part of the ELCA, we are also related to a number of agencies and institutions. Whether for. international outreach, social ministry, higher education, or leadership development, Gloria Dei is linked to partners that extend our work far beyond our own boundaries. Find out more at www.elca.org or http://www.mcselca.org/ for the Metro Chicago Synod. ELCA World Hunger is an important partner, and Gloria Dei’s Mission & Justice team works tirelessly to support hunger issues around the world. Find out more at http://www.elca.org/hunger/.

Gloria Dei is a proud partner of Thrivent Financial (more information at www.thrivent.com) which is a strong, secure, faith-based membership organization.
