Church Partners

LIRS has welcomed more than 500,000 migrants and refugees to the United States through the initiative of Lutheran congregations that inspired our formation in 1939, and Lutheran churches remain our vital partners as we continue to welcome newcomers.

Rooted in Lutherans’ faithful and caring response to the challenges facing uprooted peoples, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service celebrates strong collaborative relationships with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) , the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), and the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (LELCA).

Each denomination brings commitment to following God’s call to love the sojourner, the experience of being an immigrant church, and the leadership to make ministry with migrants and refugees a priority. Each contributes financially to the LIRS mission.
