Fan into Flame is the Synod’s major funding appeal to help support new outreach on local, national and international mission fields.

Every gift to Fan into Flame is distributed across local, national and even international lines. After campaign expenses are deducted (10 percent), the remainder of the gift is distributed with 15 percent going to the congregation running the campaign, 15 percent to the district where it originated, 20 percent to LCMS North American mission field and 50 percent for worldwide mission endeavors.

Fan into Flame gifts are already funding projects in seven LCMS districts where it’s been underway since approval by the 2004 LCMS Convention

District Fan Into Flame Grant Application Process

At the heart of Fan into Flame is Jesus' final instruction to His disciples: "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8).

We must take the Gospel to the unreached and uncommitted people in our own communities, as well as around the world, support ethnic and multicultural ministry work throughout the United States, and train workers to be witnesses of the Good News. The Acts 1:8 framework has been applied to the distribution of campaign funds.

Fan into Flame will devote approximately half of all funds received toward reaching 50 million unreached or uncommitted people with the Gospel in North America and allocate half of the funds toward sharing the Good News of Jesus with an additional 50 million people throughout the world. These funds will be distributed to LCMS congregations and Districts to support local and regional outreach activities, and LCMS World Mission will use Fan Into Flame monies to advance national and international Ablaze! projects.
