Today, the LCMS has more than 2.3 mil­lion bap­tized mem­bers in more than 6,100 con­gre­ga­tions and more than 9,000 pas­tors.  Two sem­i­nar­ies and 10 col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties oper­ate under the aus­pices of the LCMS, and its con­gre­ga­tions oper­ate the largest Protes­tant parochial school sys­tem in Amer­i­ca. The church broad­casts the sav­ing mes­sage of Jesus Christ over KFUO Radio, and it has rela­tion­ships and active mis­sion work in near­ly 90 coun­tries around the world.  In the last five years, the LCMS has award­ed more than $35 mil­lion through more than 900 domes­tic and inter­na­tion­al grants for emer­gency response and dis­as­ter response. Today, the LCMS is in full doc­tri­nal fel­low­ship with 33 oth­er con­fes­sion­al Luther­an church bod­ies world­wide.

The Lutheran Witness

Inter­pret­ing the con­tem­po­rary world from a Luther­an Chris­t­ian per­spec­tive, The Luther­an Wit­ness is a pub­li­ca­tion of the LCMS. Many mem­bers of the Mt. Olive con­gre­ga­tion sub­scribe to this mag­a­zine, receiv­ing it through the mail each month.

Lutheran Hour

Luther­an Hour Min­istries is a Chris­t­ian out­reach min­istry sup­port­ing church­es world­wide. LHM pro­duces Chris­t­ian radio and TV pro­gram­ming for broad­cast, as well as Inter­net and print com­mu­ni­ca­tions, dra­mas, music, and out­reach mate­ri­als, to reach unchurched peo­ple in the Unit­ed States and more than 30 oth­er coun­tries.

Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF)

The Luther­an Church Exten­sion Fund (LCEF) is an arm of LCMS that pro­vides invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties to church mem­bers. LCEF loans mon­ey for build­ing local church­es and sup­port­ing their work.  (Mt. Olive’s new fel­low­ship hall was built (2006–2007) with funds bor­rowed from LCEF.)

Labor­ers For Christ helps put Min­istry in Motion by serv­ing as the hands and hearts to accom­plish God’s plan for your min­istry and the goal of reach­ing more peo­ple. Mem­bers of Labor­ers For Christ assist­ed the Mt. Olive Con­gre­ga­tion with two siz­able build­ing projects: They were instru­men­tal in build­ing our west wing in 1995 and the Fel­low­ship Hall, begun in 2006 and fin­ished in 2007.
