Mission Projects

In recent years Messiah has directed energy and resources to a handful of local projects that aim specifically at sharing the Gospel of Christ with people who need to hear and trust it. Here are three of them.

Faith Mission Project

Faith Lutheran Church in Lakewood, a few miles northeast of Fairview Park, was once a thriving, busy congregation. Today average Sunday attendance is about 50. Approached for help by Faith's leaders, Messiah began in 2008 to supply pastoral services for the church while at the same time working with the leadership to develop and implement a mission to the neighborhood. Building Hope in the City began consulting on the project late in 2009. The immediate task is to find an effective leader with strong evangelistic gifts who will devote his or her full-time energies to gathering a new worshiping community under the umbrella of the existing congregation. Of all who read this we ask prayers that the Holy Spirit will quickly send us this person and bless the work that he or she will undertake. We will post updates here as they become available. 

Luther Memorial School

Luther Memorial, one of the oldest Lutheran elementary schools in the Cleveland area, came close to closing a few years ago. Kept alive, if barely, by Building Hope in the City, its fortunes turned when the mercy of God led a principal in the Cleveland public school system to sign on as the new leader of LMS. Her name is Peggy Schauer. She is a member of Messiah and is officially recognized as Messiah's Missionary in the City. Enrollment at LMS has jumped dramatically in the past two or three years, a new classical curriculum has been introduced, and the faculty has been reinvigorated with young, gifted teachers, among whom are three other Messiah members. Meanwhile Messiah volunteers have stepped forward to assist with tutoring and other important tasks. Again we ask of all who read this that they keep the unfolding ministry of LMS in regular, consistent prayer.
