Heart to Heart Sisters

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

  • Motivate, equip, challenge, and provide mentoring opportunities within the LWML for women of diverse ethnic groups to serve the church, participate in LWML, witness to the world, and grow in relationships.

  • Produce and facilitate the Heart to Heart Sisters District Leaders program for the LWML Convention.

  • Provide resources to facilitate the Heart to Heart Sisters District program.


The LWML recognizes there are gifted multicultural women serving with joy and passion in many multicultural ministries throughout The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

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.
