Funding Lutheran Leaders

Live On is the endowment fund of the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The fund was established in 1999 to support the Synod’s priorities. Together, we are developing Lutheran leadership through a culture of generosity.

Live On is making a difference:

  • Scholarships for our Synod’s seminarians are fully funded—no new student debt.
  • Lutheran campus ministries are thriving.
  • We are helping the synod plant new churches and support emerging congregations.
  • Our seed money grants are inviting innovation and supporting creative ministries.

Live On’s grants are funded through distribution of a $2.7 million endowment that received generous donations from estates, congregational endowment funds and legacy giving.
