“Why can’t I just let my kids sort this out?” Avoiding planning because of fear of the unknown or worry about legal expenses might create a temptation to kick the can down the alley for someone else to address the gift planning needs within an estate. However, it won’t be any easier for children or grandchildren to figure things out. In addition, you cannot be confident that next generations share the same values or priorities as you. Your LCMS Foundation Gift Planning Counselor can help you accomplish this task. Contact Eileen Fitzenreiter at or 419-822-6461.


Our stewardship processes are designed to reconnect your members to your congregation’s ministries while encouraging them to live as faithful stewards of the Lord’s gifts every day. Our hope is that by regularly engaging in Stewardship processes, your members are ever more involved and devoted to the collective ministries of your congregation.  Contact Lisa Hall, LCEF Ohio District Vice President via email at: or call her at: 216-570-7077. 

The District Connection exists to inform and inspire the congregations and partners of

the Ohio District LCMS in fostering the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
