Years ago, Native American tribes across the country were led on a Trail of Tears. Some walked hundreds of miles to get to their new homes. Today, the statistics regarding drug and alcohol use, physical and sexual assault, and suicide among these populations are staggering. For many Native Americans, the Trail of Tears never ended. 

They need to hear God's message of hope in Jesus Christ.

LIM staff and volunteers travel over 75,000 miles each year to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Native Americans.

They travel by car, plane, boat, snowmobile, and by foot.

As part of the LIM Tribe, you can join this journey - miles that stretch across the dusty deserts and the frozen tundra.

You can help Native Americans on a journey of hope that leads to the cross and the joy of the resurrection.

There is a lot of land still to cover. Will you enroll in the TRIBE and commit to an automated monthly donation?

There before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.
— Revelation 7:9

As a member of the Tribe, you become a partner in: over 75,000 miles traveled each year to reach out and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every Native American Nation.

I’m not able to go out and spread the Gospel to Native Americans personally, but by giving monthly, my donation can help those, like Lutheran Indian Ministries, that do deliver the Good News.
— Carole, Marshfield WI
God is working through Lutheran Indian Ministries, building His Kingdom, and I’m thrilled to be an Indigenous member of the Lutheran Indian Ministries TRIBE!
