2014-15 Wellness Opportunities
In 2014 the Southwestern Texas Synod had 65%+ participation for the 2014 Portico Wellness Challenge and and received $15,000 in Wellness money. From now until July 31, 2015, we will provide opportunities to improve wellness in other areas of the whole person. These are available to all active rostered leaders and SAMs (limited amount and first come-first served basis).

Mission Support Matters!
Mission Support matters becuse it enables us to do together what none of us can do alone. Our global mission, our poverty and justice ministries at home and abroad, our network of colleges and seminaries, our efforts to establish new ministries and to renew existing ministries, our work in supporting congregations through times of transition and conflict -- all of these depend upon faithful and generous Mission Support. Please watch the message from Rev. Margaret Payne, ELCA Director of Mission Support.
New Starts
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, God is leading us to discover new mission possibilities.
  • Be a spiritual partner with a new start
  • Share financial resources for new starts
  • Keep your eyes and ears open to notice what God is doing.
  • Let's talk!
