Heart to Heart Sisters

 The purpose of the Heart to Heart Sisters Committee is to:

  • Motivate, equip, and ensure opportunities for multicultural women to serve the church, participate in LWML, witness to the world, and grow in relationships as sisters in Christ.
  • Produce and facilitate the H2H program for the LWML convention.

The LWML recognizes there are gifted multicultural women serving with joy and passion in many multicultural ministries throughout The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Because of the nature of multicultural ministry, many of these women leaders are unfamiliar with the culture of the LCMS and LWML.

We are committed to assisting LWML Districts in establishing Heart to Heart Sisters programs so multicultural women may mutually encourage one another, support each other, and work together, living out the beautiful diversity that is the body of Christ.

Why Do We Embrace Diversity?

"Diversity requires us to move out of our comfort zone. Some of us may feel threatened or fearful because we are accustomed to a certain way of doing things." Use this audio-enhanced PowerPoint to strengthen relationships and build trust with other cultures and ethnic people.
