A portion of our church benevolence dollars goes to help these four mission starts with their ministries. As these churches move toward self-sufficiency we will be able to sponsor new congregations in their mission to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. Thank you Good Shepherd for your generous giving and for your prayers for our Mission Partner congregations.
We are, as our name - Light The Way Mission Development Church - suggests, a new mission Church (LCMC) and a beacon of light for His Word! And though we are just putting down roots in the Northwest Tucson and Marana area, we are a vibrant part of the body of Christ which is claimed by His light forever, called, gathered and sent to tell of God's love and to serve all of God's people! We are called to proclaim the Gospel, care for our neighbors, provide for the needy, care for the sick, welcome the lost, teach the scriptures, enhance our new and thriving preschool, and serve His church more fully.

House of God
House of God is a new Lutheran Congregation in Mission for Christ in Redlands, California. Pastor Greg and Cindi Wallace lead this new church that started in 2011. The church in built on Jesus’ call to make disciples from Matthew 28. As the only LCMC church in the area, they draw folks from all over Inland Empire.
Most of the congregation are connected in discipleship oriented groups called “huddles”. They reach out to their communities in love and service through Missional Community groups. The groups of 20-50 people each have a specific missional focus (helping poor teens, serving the homeless, caring for children in hospitals, etc.). The church gathers on Sunday morning with 2 worship times. A traditional service at 8:30am and a more contemporary expression at 10am. There’s a budding youth ministry and a dynamic Sunday kids’ church as well. It’s a great family to be a part of.
