LHF Mission Speakers

There’s a new Reformation going on! All around the world, Christians young and old are being introduced to Luther’s Small Catechism and other Lutheran materials, translated and published by the Lutheran Heritage Foundation.

LHF speakers will come to your church, free of charge, to tell how new Lutherans are embracing sound doctrine and begging for more materials to be translated into their languages. They will also share how your congregation can play a part in this important mission.

To schedule an LHF speaker for your church’s mission rally, Bible study, or other special event, call (800)554-0723.

As an LCMS missionary for 12 years in the former Soviet Union, Rev. Heise saw firsthand the value of having good Lutheran books in the languages of the people. “The work that LHF does is taking the Scripture to the ends of the earth.”

LHF Church Relations

Rev. Rockemann’s enthusiasm for the LHF mission is contagious! “Simple books,” he reflects. “The simple Bible stories that we learned as children growing up still have the power of God to turn hearts and lives around. Isn’t that amazing?”
