About Us

The Heartland District is a geographical district of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC).

We are comprised of congregations in Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas.

As members of the priesthood of all believers, called by the Holy Spirit to confess the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in its purity, we give thanks for God’s continual faithfulness. 

In partnership with one another, we unite to carry out God’s mission to the world in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
